Idaho is preparing for war, martial law

by

I knew Idaho was a red state, but this is ridiculous.  The Idaho state legislature just passed a law that ensures that if martial law were to be enacted by the federal or state government, then citizens would never have to forfeit their right to bear arms.   Representative Pete Nielson, a sponsor of the bill, cited the chaotic aftermath of Hurricane Katrina as one of the reasons why this bill is needed.  “Even in those instances, we should have the right to keep our Second Amendment right and keep our arms and ammunition.”

A potato famine would devastate local militias.

What is disconcerting about this situation is that states now have to reinforce federal amendments.  After the Bush Administration danced gleefully on the corpse of the Fourth Amendment, the people have a point in ensuring the Constitution is upheld.

That being said, this is bad news for the economy.  Now that Obama is president, gun manufacturers are enjoying an unprecedented leap in sales from the assorted crazies that believe everything the NRA tells them.   And there are tons of those loonies in Idaho.  You’d think that the Idaho representation would lend a kind ear to the gun lobby.  Now that the state government has ensured Second Amendment rights, the stockpilers may take a breather.
