The Pro-Gun Rally That No One Reported

posted on February 24, 2016

Last Saturday afternoon in Boise, Idaho, more than 1,000 people showed up at the state capitol to show their support for Second Amendment rights and to urge lawmakers to hear legislation that would enable residents to carry a concealed firearm without a permit. A gathering of this size doesn’t occur that often in Boise, but you wouldn’t know it by the press the event garnered. 

A quick flip through the two daily papers turned up nary a mention of the rally. The only local station to report on it downplayed it to “dozens” of supporters. And while Boise Weekly upped the estimate to “hundreds” in their write-up, they also warned that House Bill 422 would allow Idahoans to carry “deadly weapons.” 

This lack of coverage and accurate reporting underscores the challenge facing gun-rights supporters in the Gem State. You can help by urging your legislators to take action today.
