    The problem is, if the federal government decides to litigate, it might cost state taxpayers' money to contest federal-vs-state issue under 10th Amendment.

    IF the Fed's try to litigate it, my solid bet is that they will lose. The Fed's try to "rule, control and pass regulations" that are an extreme stretch as "inter-state commerce" , which is there excuse as the reason it gives them the right to do so. The Constitution does not give the Federal Govt any authority to over-see nor pass laws related to In-State Commerce. If they chanced it and lost the case, it may open up a big can of worms challenging the Fedl Govt legally doing many many other things it gets away with. They would not want to chance that.

    Well it did pass, and it violates federal law. Like Eagleks said, the real hope here, is that the federal law can be shown to be unconstitutional, something even the governor thinks is unlikely. But with Montana footing the bill and setting precedent, Utah might as well demonstrate their support for free.

    Anyhow, these things never amount to much. Lets assume it actually makes it to the supreme court. The judges there are going to rule, one way or the other, on some totally unrelated and arbitrary point to avoid the controversy of the 2A or limits of federal authority altogether. Once again leaving the argument open, ready to be abused by your next representative.
    Crime should be outlawed.

    This seems to be one of those things where there is safety in numbers. Stand together or hang separately, so to speak.

    Well to help with this we need to get folks to contact there state reps. in any state show that more than one or two states will also get in on it. Spread the cost around and show we deserve better rights.

    What is this "Montana Trigger" they are talking about?
    Now, we must all fear evil men. But there is another kind of evil which we must fear most, and that is the indifference of good men.

    This is a good thing...
    "There are times when the state needs to push back against continued encroachment from the federal government. Sending the message that we will stand up for a proper balance between the state and federal government is a good thing," Herbert said in a statement...

    I believe the initial position of the governor and AG was to not enact the law in Utah until Montana's lawsuit w/ the feds was settled in the favor of the states.
