The idea of restricting gun use on public lands when conditions create a high risk of fire doesn’t sit well with most Press readers.

Still, a large majority would be OK with telling shooters to leave their guns home when heading onto public lands during extreme dry conditions.

Here is how 852 Press readers responded when asked:

As wildfires blaze throughout the West, Utah officials are considering restricting gun use on public lands as dry conditions persist. Would you support such a ban in Idaho?

"Yes" - 358 voters - 42 percent

"No" - 494 voters - 58 percent

Will a Kootenai County judge’s recent ruling that the Spokesman-Review must turn over information that will likely reveal the identity of an anonymous blogger change your online commenting habits?

    It would seem some fires are caused by a new type exploding target now on the market These could easily be banned. Asking gun owners and hunters to wait for a BLM or Forest service drone to grant us permmision to carry a firearm would be like fasting till we have world peace. Perhaps the question should be should everyone and everything be banned from public lands till those bureaucrats decide its safe. Lots of luck waiting for them to do a enviromental impact study and get a court ruling before they pass judgement.
