The State of Montana Says Yes to 2nd Amendment and No to Federal Gun Regulation (Montana Firearms Freedom Act Passes!)

Thank you Montana! The Montana Firearms Freedom Act passed and has been signed by the Governor. We need more States to pass this legislation. Every State legislator should introduce similar laws in their respective States. This is destined for a Supreme Court challenge, so we need more States in the fight. Guns and firearms made in Montana will be exempt from federal regulation and control. It will increase gun manufacturing in Montana, but it may be difficult to stop people from transporting guns across State lines.

Gov. Brian Schweitzer has signed into law a bill that aims to exempt Montana-made guns from federal regulation.

House Bill 246 was sponsored by Republican Rep. Joel Boniek of Livingston. It applies only to guns made and kept in Montana. Its supporters hope it triggers a court case to test the legal basis for federal rules governing gun sales.
