In North Idaho, incendiary flyers are being distributed anonymously. Authorities in Bonner County say they’re reviewing the materials.

A group of residents in northern Idaho lined outside a U.S. Navy veteran's house on Thursday to protest claims that federal officials are planning on confiscating the man's weapons.

Idaho Republican state Rep. Heather Scott says the Veteran Affairs office has sent a letter to John Arnold of Priest River warning him that he cannot possess or purchase firearms.

Bonner County Sheriff Daryl Wheeler says he and his deputies will stand guard against any federal attempts to remove Arnold's guns.

Bonner County commissioners have declared a financial emergency to allow the county to use money from a contingency account to fend off a federal lawsuit.

The Bonner County Daily Bee reports the commissioners made the decision Wednesday so the county can use money in the county's justice fund.

The county budgeted $400,000 in the current fiscal year and will now have another $450,000 for a total of $850,000.
