May is Month to Protect 2nd Amendment says Idaho Governor

BOISE, Idaho (AP) — Gov. C.L. “Butch” Otter says May is the month to protect the 2nd Amendment — and a perfect time to urge arms and ammunition makers to set up shop in Idaho. The Republican governor issued the proclamation Monday that touts Idaho’s reputation as a gun-friendly state and the perfect environment for the firearms industry.

The Department of Commerce tag-teamed with the governor, issuing its own press release touting the state’s gun credentials and statutory protections. Agency officials say Idaho is already home to more than 180 companies that manufacture custom firearms, aftermarket parts and specialized ammunition.

Otter spokesman Jon Hanian says the idea was solely the governor’s and something he wanted to do. Hanian says Otter wanted to make sure industry officials knew Idaho has thrown down the “welcome mat.”
