(IDAHO FALLS, ID) – An Idaho Falls attorney is speaking out against a state bill that would prohibit local police from enforcing federal gun control measures. Laurie Gaffney says the legislation is pointless because it violates police oaths and the Constitution’s supremacy clause. The bill passed a House vote on Monday. Rep. Linden Batemen of Idaho Falls, who supported the measure, says the state is not responsible for enforcing federal laws.
