Updates From the States--Montana Considers Bold Gun-Rights Bill

The Montana Shooting Sports Association is supporting HB 228 and wants the Legislature to pass this bill. The National Rifle Association also endorses it.

UPDATE April 7: The conference committee decided to keep Montana's existing permit system for carrying concealed guns. (It went along with the March 30 action by the Senate Judiciary Committee.) The Shooting Association's Marbut says even so, enough provisions of HB 228 got passed by both chambers, it's still a victory for gun-rights advocates -- making it easier to use a gun against people who act threatening, without being hassled later by cops and prosecutors.

UPDATE April 20: The Bill has been passed by the Montana Legislators and is awaiting signing by the Governor.
