Idaho governor signs bill to halt Biden moves on gun laws
BOISE, Idaho (AP) — Idaho Gov. Brad Little has signed legislation aimed at thwarting a half-dozen executive actions by President Joe Biden to combat gun violence.
The Republican governor signed the measure Monday. It passed the Idaho House and Senate with veto-proof majorities and carried an emergency notice, meaning it went into effect with Little’s signature.

The new law is retroactive to Jan. 20, the day Biden was sworn in as president. It prevents all Idaho government entities from enforcing executive orders, federal laws, treaties, agency orders and rules of the U.S. government involving firearms, firearm components and accessories, or ammunition that conflict with the Idaho Constitution.

In the hierarchy of laws, federal law trumps state law. State officials don't enforce federal laws and regs just like federal officials don't enforce state laws and regs. Had an employee who parroted her husbands arguments that state and local officials should be enforcing immigration laws. I asked if she ever saw the FBI giving speeding tickets. Our neighbors to the north get a pass, they don't have a hard and fast line between provincial and federal enforcement.

The new ID law just stirs up the base.
