Idaho ranked 32 in ‘gun-friendly states’

Letter: Jack Mosher

Did you know that, when it comes to “gun-friendly states,” Idaho is ranked 32? The most gun-friendly state is Arizona. And the least gun-friendly are Washington, D.C. and New York, in that order. (To note: the higher the survey number, the less gun-friendly the state.)

We’re actually pretty well-situated here in Idaho, but, although certain positive precedents exist, the law is weak and murky regarding self-defense/stand-your-ground issues. Enacting a model of Florida’s “Castle Doctrine” is needed and overdue.
