The Giffords Law Center is an organization dedicated to preventing gun violence. Its Annual Gun Law Scorecard® is a comprehensive resource that grades and ranks each state in the United States based on the strength of its gun laws. The scorecard also correlates these rankings with the gun death rates in each state, providing a unique perspective on the impact of gun laws on public safety.

Idaho, known for its vast wilderness and outdoor recreational activities, has a rich tradition of gun ownership. However, when it comes to gun safety laws, the Gem State's approach is notably lax, as evidenced by its ranking on the Giffords Law Center's Annual Gun Law Scorecard®.

According to the Giffords Law Center, there is a clear correlation between stronger gun laws and fewer gun deaths. Unfortunately, Idaho's lax gun laws have resulted in higher gun death rates compared to states with more stringent gun laws. This is a cause for concern, particularly for those who believe in responsible gun ownership and safety.

The Giffords Law Center's scorecard doesn't merely highlight the problem; it provides a roadmap for change, offering solutions and advocating for stronger gun laws at the state and national levels. From supporting comprehensive background checks to promoting child and consumer safety, the Giffords Law Center is actively working towards reducing gun violence.

As it stands, Idaho's exact ranking and grade on the Giffords Law Center's Annual Gun Law Scorecard® is an "F." The gun law strength is ranked 46 out of 50, gun death rate rank is 18 out of 50, and gun deaths per 100k is 17.5.
