Two guns bills clear House State Affairs

Legislation that would make it a misdemeanor crime for Idaho law enforcement officials to help enforce any new federal firearms restrictions or registration requirements cleared the House State Affairs Committee today on a party-line vote, the AP reports; it would impose jail time and fines on Idaho officers who help federal agents confiscate any newly banned firearms or ammunition. “There’s threats directly from Washington,” the bill’s sponsor, Rep. Mark Patterson, R-Boise, told the committee. “We need to be prepared, because it can happen swiftly.” More here. Betsy Russell, EOB

Really? Jail time and fines for Idaho offices who help federal agents confiscate banned guns?
