Read Time3 Minutes, 12 Seconds

This weekly column features news stories and event announcements from around the American Redoubt region. (Idaho, Montana, eastern Oregon, eastern Washington, and Wyoming.) Much of the region is also more commonly known as The Inland Northwest. We also mention companies of interest to preppers and survivalists that are located in the American Redoubt region. Today, we focus on a major Wyoming interstate freeway closure. (See the Wyoming section.)


Idaho school district buys rifles, will warn visitors building is ‘armed’. The article begins:

“The Garden Valley School District is arming itself and a handful of staff members with guns in case of potential security threats moving forward.

According to the district’s school board minutes, the district has purchased four rifles and 2,000 rounds of ammunition.

The district is also considering spending up to $2,000 to purchase extra magazine[s,] rounds and body armor vests, according to school board documents. Each rifle was purchased for $680.”

JWR’s Comment: Hmmmm. Rifles with a $680 pricetag. I’ll bet that those are Rifles of Color.

Peter spotted this from Washington: 2020 gun control agenda targets limits on high-capacity magazines. The 12-point agenda is thorough, including goals to regulate access to ammunition and high-capacity magazines, “address the intersection of alcohol and firearm violence,” allow local governments to enact stricter gun control, create a centralized background check system, and more.

“Nearly 300 miles of Interstate 25 in Wyoming is closed in both directions due to winter weather.
