Idaho lawmaker may lose concealed weapons permit
In the 2013 Legislature, Patterson authored an unsuccessful bill that would have made it a misdemeanor for Idaho law enforcement officials to help enforce any new federal restrictions on firearms. Raney opposed the bill, and Patterson believes he's being targeted now because his legislation angered law enforcement officers.
"This whole thing is to silence me," Patterson said.
Raney insists that's untrue.
"The questions that Mr. Patterson raises and the allegations he makes are irrelevant to the fact that he lied on his initial application and his renewal application," Raney said.
