Fearful Gun Owners Contact Solons

From Kestrel West Morning Memo:

When legislators are being bombarded from home with calls to act quickly, you can count on things to happen fast. That's the takeaway from this morning's lead story in the Idaho Statesman reporting on 'panic' over proposed gun restrictions. [Rep. Judy] Boyle said she’s received about 150 emails and uncounted phone calls and text messages urging her to act immediately. Meanwhile, she said, talk radio is ablaze with callers saying, “What’s the Legislature doing? They’re doing nothing!”  “I think we’re all getting the same kind of emails of panic,” Boyle said Thursday. “They’re scared, really scared, about losing their guns, or their right to purchase a gun or ammunition, or any component to make their ammunition.” With legislators heading home to things like the "2nd Amendment Rally" Saturday in Coeur d'Alene ( look for gun-related legislation to move fast over the next few weeks.

Question: Should gun owners be panicking?
