Here in Idaho, HB229 is doing something similar, but I think it needs more teeth, and to be much stronger in what it does.
However, there is much to be said for how it's written now.
It says that the Feds can't do jack about stuff made and sold in Idaho.
But it leaves much open to interpretation. What is "made in Idaho" for example?
If I buy the parts, and assemble them in Idaho, I think it's made here, and if I stamp/engrave "MADE IN IDAHO" on that part/Weapon, it's absolutely made here.
Same goes with ammo. If I buy a container/spam can of surplus ammo from China, open them up, and "Make" them in Idaho, by checking the ammo for defects, and making it into new boxes here to be sold here, It's MADE IN IDAHO.
And we can get containers shipped to Lewiston, ID up the Columbia, question is, will the BATFE intercept the raw materials I'd be buying from China so that I can make them in Idaho?
If there is no problems, might be cheaper to ship the containers of raw materials by train after they are dropped off in port somewhere along the Pacific coast.
And I'm totally looking forward to being able to buy a suppressor for every weapon I own, made and used in Idaho, and no FED nonsense to deal with anymore!
