    Did anyone notice that in 2005 the signs in Camelback Park in Boise that prefaced every trail said "no firearms" and now they say "no discharging firearms?" WhenI first moved to Idaho, I noticed these signs and knew instantly that they had no legitimacy whatsoever as Idaho state law pre-empts any local ordinance.I talked first to the Boise City legal department and they had no interest in discussing the subject but they got me in touch with Ms. Heins (forget her first name) who was in charge of city signs and their contents. She was unaware of the problem but promised immediate action. Within 30 days those signs were changed to a rule that we all can agree on: "no discharging of firearms."

    All this to say, a little community involvement can sometimes produce wonders. I love the feeling of having moved here and within my first year single handedly changed the face of Boise (ok so that's an exaggeration) but also realize that we still live in a great state that shows deference to liberty and is responsive to its people.

    So next time you hike up in the foothills OC-ingand you see the signs, you can thank that militia nut who made a couple of phone calls and got those signs changed.

    You're welcome!

    They are within every right to limit the discharge of firearms in any area they please, particularly the Foothills area due to large amounts of dry grass, same reason that fireworks are not allowed in that area.

    But having those signs changed as such is good for our cause.
