There’s been a lot of talk about guns from national politicians, but little action. The real fight is playing out at the state level. Pruett’s group (Idaho Second Amendment Alliance), for example, has pushed Idaho to get rid of nearly all of its regulations.
And now lawmakers are poised to drop restrictions on out-of-state residents’ right to carry concealed weapons. That proposal sailed through the Idaho House and will likely pass the Senate. It’s one of the last state gun restrictions left.
Pruett said he took to lobbying state legislators when he saw no action from Washington.
“The Republicans didn’t do gun owners any favors in the first two years of President Trump’s tenure when they had control of the House and the Senate and obviously the White House,” he said.
