What appears to be the year’s largest pro-Second Amendment rally took place in Boise, Idaho, this weekend, drawing thousands of supporters from at least five states through the streets of Boise to the capitol building. Rallygoers carried rifles and handguns along with American and Gadsden flags, and all came out to show their support for the right to keep and bear arms.

“They want to ban all semi-automatic firearms, this is the battle that we’re in and if you haven’t noticed, the anti-gun left wants your guns,” Greg Pruett, President of the Idaho Second Amendment Alliance (ISAA), said from the podium. “They want your guns, they want to take them away and they think that you and me are the problem.”

Estimates varied as to the exact number of attendees. Boise State Public Radio reported “hundreds” gathered to march in Boise, while the ISAA estimated in a Facebook post that 2,000 people attended. The Idaho Statesman quoted Pruett putting the number at “nearly 1,000.”

Whatever the exact number, Pruett is confident that Saturday’s rally marked the largest pro-2A march this year.

“We have just held the largest gun rights rally in Idaho history,” he said. “And we have most certainly held the largest gun rally in the nation.”

Yes, Boise, Idaho. Sad to say, places folks thought would never have an issue with the 2nd amendment are in the cross hairs bigly. Transplants that move to get away from something or other are transforming their new locations into what they left. Why? Well, because they know better than the rubes living in fly over country.

Why? Well, because they know better than the rubes living in fly over country. No sarc tag necessary. My first thought was, "Boise?"

I'm not worried about losing my weapons.

I'm more concerned with having ranges shut down.

WY, Montana, NV, AZ, CO, NM, TX, OK. Sad dang situation when you have to struggle to maintain something guaranteed not to be messed with in the constitution. US and a lot of the states constitutions. But, I keep forgetting that “We aren’t special or exceptional.” in the world.
