400 Rally in Idaho Falls for Gun Rights
IDAHO FALLS, Idaho (AP) — About 400 gun advocates marched in Idaho Falls during a Save Our Second Amendment rally. The Post Register reports the group on Saturday started at the Bonneville County Courthouse steps and marched about a mile to the Shilo Inn where they listened to speeches and signed petitions in support of gun rights.
Jessica Jacobson of Ririe brought her three young daughters ages 9, 8 and 4. She says she supports having a gun in her house and the government shouldn't in any way infringe on her gun rights. Three weeks ago about 500 gun advocates rallied in Rexburg, citing similar concerns about sweeping federal gun-control proposals made by President Barack Obama.
