In a letter in today's Cda Press, Adam Gregory writes:
I wanted to talk about a matter which I feel needs some attention. The Citylink Rider Policies and Regulations, available at http://www.idahocitylink.com/policies.php, state that: No firearms or weapons are allowed on the bus.
I feel this policy is in direct violation of Idaho Code 18-3302J: PREEMPTION OF FIREARMS REGULATION. In section 2 of the above code it states, “Except as expressly authorized by state statute, no county, city, agency, board or any other political subdivision of this state may adopt or enforce any law, rule, regulation, or ordinance which regulates in any manner the sale, acquisition, transfer, ownership, possession, transportation, carrying or storage of firearms or any element relating to firearms and components thereof, including ammunition.”
The Idaho code specifies that no government subdivision may make any policy which regulates, in this case, possession, transportation or carrying of firearms. As the Citylink program is a partnership of local and state government agencies, it falls under this code. Full letter here.
Agree or disagree?
