Proposed Law


I am going to ask my very progun state representative to introduce a bill:

1. The U.S. Supreme Court in Printz v. U.S (1997) ruled that the federal government may not compel States to enforce federal laws.  Because several proposed laws violate the right to keep and bear arms guaranteed by the Second Amendment to the U.S. Constitution as recognized in D.C. v. Heller (2008) and Art. I, sec. 11 of the Idaho Constitution, no agency or officer of the State of Idaho will assist federal law enforcement in arrests, searches, or prosecution of Idaho citizens for possession, transfer, failure to register, license,  firearms unless that alleged crime also violates Idaho law.  This provision does not include violations associated with interstate transfers of firearms or transfers to persons prohibited from possession under Federal law as of January 1, 2011.

2. In the event any federal law enforcement agency violates the civil right of Idaho citizens to possess arms by seizing arms from an Idaho citizen or indicts an Idaho citizen for possession, transfer, failure to register, or license firearms unless that alleged crime violates Idaho law, the Attorney-General of Idaho will defend that citizen's rights in federal trial and appellate proceedings.

3. State and local agencies have an obligation to examine all circumstances where seizures of arms or arrests of Idaho citizens have taken place to look for evidence of violations of that citizen's rights with an eye to gathering evidence that might be helpful in the citizen's suit under 18 U.S.C. 1983.

4. Idaho shall prosecute any federal law enforcement officers who exceed their lawful authority in use of deadly force or other violations of the rights of citizens of Idaho.

5. All provisions of this bill are severable, and remain in effect if one or more provisions are found invalid.

I excluded manufacturing because that has already been decided in the federal courts, and any area that might qualify as interstate commerce.
