Red Flag Laws

Red Flag laws violate the 2nd, 4th, 5th, 9th & 10th Amendments of our Constitution.

Specifically for Idaho the Idaho Constitution (Art. 1, Section 11) prohibits seizure laws & then there’s this: “The Idaho Federal Firearm, Magazine and Register Ban Enforcement Act (2014) “protects Idaho law enforcement officers from being directed, through federal executive orders, agency orders, statutes, laws, rules, or regulations enacted or promulgated on or after the effective date of this act, to violate their oath of office and Idaho citizens.”
