    Montana: Final Legislative Hurdle for Permitless Carry Expected this Monday

    Please contact your state Senator immediately!

    The NRA has learned that the state Senate will vote on the Conference Committee report for NRA-supported House Bill 271 this Monday, April 18. Sponsored by state Representative Krayton Kerns (R-58), the current language of HB 271 simply says that the prohibition on concealed carry does not apply to ďa person who is eligible to possess a handgun under state or federal law.Ē

    Existing law allows any person who can legally own and possess a firearm to carry it openly, either loaded or unloaded, anywhere in the state, including within city limits. Additionally, law-abiding citizens are authorized to carry firearms concealed, without a permit, anywhere outside city limits. Law-abiding citizens do not suddenly turn into criminals when they cross the arbitrary boundary into a city. It makes no sense to allow them to carry concealed without a permit on one side of the line but not the other!

    The Senate is scheduled to convene at 9:00 a.m. on Monday, April 18, but the vote on HB 271 will likely come later in the day. Please send an e-mail to your state Senator and follow-up with a phone call respectfully urging him or her to support the Conference Committee report for House Bill 271. You can find your state Senatorís personal e-mail address here. If they donít list an e-mail address on their personal page, the next best alternative is to send an e-mail by clicking here. Legislators can be reached via phone on Monday by dialing (406) 444-4800. If you need help identifying your state Senator, please click here.

    Thank you for working hard to ensure that HB 271 becomes a reality!

    Go Montana!
    I'm hoping that FL will soon pass the open carry bill and other important parts of that bill...we'll see.

    Well, I was born in Montana, raised in Wyoming (which recently passed the same thing), and now live in South Dakota. Hopefully the wave will finally catch up to me here!
