Idaho Gov. Butch Otter wants more guns and ammo produced in his state.
Otter, a Republican, has sent letters to 79 firearms makers and ammunition producers in 28 states promoting the benefits of relocating to Idaho. He also declared May 2nd Amendment Protection Month statewide.
The National Rifle Association ranks Idaho as a gun-friendly state whose laws are among the least restrictive in the nation, Otter said in his official proclamation. The state of Idaho openly embraces companies in the arms and ammunition manufacturing sector to expand or relocate to the state.
It was the seventh proclamation Otter has signed so far this month designating May to be the month of something; the others, from Motorcycle Safety Awareness Month to Mental Health Month, all were requested by various groups. Not so the Second Amendment proclamation.
In this case, he initiated this, said Otters press secretary, Jon Hanian. This was something he wanted to do.
