House Protests Senate’s Refusal to Debate Gun Rights Bills

BOISE, Idaho (AP) — Representatives are protesting the Senate’s refusal to debate two gun-rights measures. In a procedural move Tuesday, House Republicans completely gutted a Senate-passed bill requiring school districts to meet with local sheriffs to craft security plans.

In its place, they inserted two different bills that have already passed the House, but haven’t won a hearing in the Senate. One seeks to strengthen three-year-old Idaho prohibitions on federal regulation of Idaho-made weapons that never leave the state. The other would charge Idaho state and local law enforcement officials with a crime for helping federal agents confiscate federally banned weapons.

Senate State Affairs Committee Chairman Curt McKenzie said last week there wasn’t enough time to hear these measures. With Tuesday’s amendments, all three bills including the Senate’s are now likely doomed to failure.
