Group To Challenge CdA Gun Laws

The president of Idaho's Second Amendment Alliance said Thursday he is pursuing a legal challenge to a city ordinance banning weapons at parades and other public gatherings. "We are working on a way to file a suit to challenge the ordinance," said Greg Pruett. Pruett said his organization has been working with cities all over Idaho to change their local codes to adhere to Idaho's preemption law, which prohibits cities from regulating firearms. Just last week the organization successfully convinced Twin Falls County Commissioners to unanimously repeal that county's firearms ordinance banning guns in county parks. On its website,, the alliance is tracking all of the local firearms ordinances in Idaho, and Pruett said they are making progress almost everywhere except for Coeur d'Alene/Jeff Selle, Coeur d'Alene Press.

Question: Which side do you want to win this challenge?
