    HB 246 legal challenge to regulate guns and ammunition

    Dear MSSA Friends,

    MSSA's Montana-made guns bill, HB 246, is now scheduled for its public hearing in the Senate before the Senate Business and Labor Committee on Friday, March 27th, at 10 AM in Capitol Room 422.

    Plan to be there if you can. If not, plan to send messages to committee members on Wednesday or Thursday asking for support for HB 246.

    You probably remember that the purpose of HB 246 is to set up a legal challenge to the ability of Congress to regulate guns and ammunition made and retained in Montana under the constitutional authority of Congress to "regulate commerce among the states." HB 246 declares that any guns and ammo made and retained in Montana are simply not subject to regulation by Congress (including by any federal agencies under laws passed by Congress).

    If we can get this passed by the Legislature and vetted in the courts, we may also see the beginning of business in Montana making firearms for the Montana-only market. Wouldn't that be nice?

    Thanks loads for your help.

    Best wishes,

    Gary Marbut, president

    This is an awesome challenge on the Fed's abuse of power and overstepping their Constitutional boundaries.!
