Friday Governor Butch Otter signed a bill that thankfully strengthened the Second Amendment in Idaho. Finally, all branches of state government recognized that Idaho Citizens have a right to protect themselves by concealing their weapons. Who made this happen? Was it the legislature? The NRA? Or was it the Idaho Second Amendment Alliance? The answer is obvious to me. As the endless parade of accolades resonates throughout the airwaves and social media, the credit for championing this bill and getting it passed goes to Greg Pruett and Seth Rosquist. These two young men only wanted to protect their families by exercising their second amendment rights.

Is it a joke? Or an effort to spark a serious debate about guns and public safety? An online petition to lift the ban on guns at the upcoming Republican National Convention certainly has people talking. Not gonna happen, says the Secret Service, and they’re in charge. But the petition calling for it has drawn close to 50,000 signatures, and re-ignited an old controversy: should public places like schools, movie theaters and convention halls be gun-free zones?
