From The AP:

The Montana House on Thursday passed two bills seeking to prohibit local governments from passing strict gun ordinances.
Republican Rep. Matt Regier said his bills are a response to Missoula city ordinances that require background checks for private gun sales and ban weapons in certain public buildings, parks, places of public assembly and polling sites.

Montana Town Cracks Down On Guns

From Bearing Arms:

The city council in Missoula, Montana doesn’t seem to like guns. That’s odd, too, because Montana seems like the last place in the world you’d find a whole lot of anti-gun politicians, but then again, this is the state that gave us John Tester, so looks can be deceiving I suppose. It seems like the city council in Missoula, though, doesn’t even want to pretend to like guns these days.

Firearms Freedom Act Headed To Supreme Court

From World Net Daily:

The expected decision now clears the way for a battle that could end up in the U.S. Supreme Court over state sovereignty, alleged regulatory overreach, the right to self-defense and even the compact under which Montana became a state.

The Montana Firearms Freedom Act was enacted in Montana and signed into law by Gov. Brian Schweitzer in 2009.

It declares that a firearm made and retained in Montana is not subject to any federal regulation under the power given to Congress in the U.S. Constitution to “regulate commerce … among the states.”
