The Montana Gun Law You WILL NEVER Hear About…

(Author’s Note: Please note the date of this post and that this hit the blogsphere at the end of April.)

UPDATED: 5/7/09:

Glenn Beck’s interview with Judge Napolitano concerning the far reaching ramifications of the new Montana Firearms Freedom Act.  If this does not get every patriot in America dancing in the streets, I do not know what will.  This is the beginning of the change we can believe in.


I just heard that Texas is working on the same type of bill that was just signed by the Governor of Montana on April 15th, 2009.  HAS ANYBODY HEARD ABOUT THIS ON THE MSM?  Guess not; it’s a gun freedom law.

The Montana Firearms Freedom Act, HB246, go here.

From the Volokh Conspiracy:

Montana’s staunchly pro-Second Amendment Governor, Democrat Brian Schweitzer, has signed Montana HB 246, the Montana Firearms Freedom Act. The bill declares that a firearm which is manufactured in Montana, and never leaves the State of Montana, “is not subject to federal law or federal regulation, including registration, under the authority of congress to regulate interstate commerce. It is declared by the legislature that those items have not traveled in interstate commerce.”

Further, “It is declared by the legislature that basic materials, such as unmachined steel and unshaped wood, are not firearms, firearms accessories, or ammunition and are not subject to congressional authority to regulate firearms, firearms accessories, and ammunition under interstate commerce as if they were actually firearms, firearms accessories, or ammunition. The authority of congress to regulate interstate commerce in basic materials does not include authority to regulate firearms, firearms accessories, and ammunition made in Montana from those materials. Firearms accessories that are imported into Montana from another state and that are subject to federal regulation as being in interstate commerce do not subject a firearm to federal regulation under interstate commerce because they are attached to or used in conjunction with a firearm in Montana.”

And this is even better…

From Freedom’s Phoenix:

Montana Governor Signs New Gun Law

Executive Summary – The USA state of Montana has signed into power a revolutionary gun law. I mean REVOLUTIONARY.
The State of Montana has defied the federal government and their gun laws. This will prompt a showdown between the federal government and the State of Montana. The federal government fears citizens owning guns. They try to curtail what types of guns they can own. The gun control laws all have one common goal – confiscation of privately owned firearms.

Montana has gone beyond drawing a line in the sand. They have challenged the Federal Government. The fed now either takes them on and risks them saying the federal agents have no right to violate their state gun laws and arrest the federal agents that try to enforce the federal firearms acts. This will be a world-class event to watch. Montana could go to voting for secession from the union, which is really throwing the gauntlet in Obamas face. If the federal government does nothing they lose face. Gotta love it.

Important Points – If guns and ammunition are manufactured inside the State of Montana for sale and use inside that state then the federal firearms laws have no applicability since the federal government only has the power to control commerce across state lines. Montana has the law on their side. Since when did the USA start following their own laws especially the constitution of the USA, the very document that empowers the USA.

Texas is looking better and better….

  • Letty Bromenschenkel -

    Thank GOD :

    FINALLY some spine in this nation:

    HAIL the NEW countries of TEXAS and MONTANA

    We will move there and help them build 20 ft fences around the entire states:

    THE demented, deranged radicals and OBAMA get to keep CA, NY, ILL, OR, MI, WA, OHIO, and PA


    BE There to REVOLT JULY 4th, CHUCKY is drafting an emergency AMNESTY bill for all illegals:

    20 million UP to maybe 200 million ??? you think ?

    Where is the line in the sand on how many illegals is the limit: SOUNDS as if they could admit up to 500 million, and or even a BILLION,
    It would be cheaper to annex Central AM, SO AM, Africa, Haiti, ??? and on and on and on

  • Letty – I think “officially” sanctioning south america is the idea.

    gotta love montana and texas…wonder who will be next?

  • Exactly what I expected from Montana. There are people who live there that are secessionists. They are very different from most of America. Right on Montana! Wait until Texas enacts the law move there it is inexpensive compared to Montana. Trust me on this!

  • I truly believe that the honest America loving politicans in this country have just been waiting to see if there is real support from the citizens.

    They could not do these things alone, the petitions, phone calls, tea parties and most important, in my opinion the prayers of the citizens of this country have shown those that want to do right , we have their backs.

    Thanks to Montana and Texas, it only takes a few brave souls, or in this case states, to start a movement. With all the recent gun sales in this country the states know they had better protect the interests of their citizens.

  • I’ve been telling my husband for months that Montana is the place for us. I read this a few days ago, I think. Hell, they’re all running together now. You know what I mean, Diamond!

    Texas may be less expensive, Navy, but Montana is not bordered by Mexico! That is a big consideration for us.

    God bless America!

    Thank you , Diamond.

  • What’s this? Are you telling me that “The One” has not unified us all with hope and change? I’m so disappointed…and btw, when the hell am I going to get that sparkly unicorn and I’m still waiting for Obama to pay my mortgage and find me a job.

  • Mary Ellen,

    Didn’t you get the memo? Sparkly Unicorns are all invisible for National Security reasons that we’re all too ignorant to understand. As far as the mortgage goes, you have to take out one of those Shari’a loans before he can pay it for you. The job is coming soon – you do look good in stripes, don’t you? 8)

  • DaddysDarlin -

    Montana will pave the way for every other state in the country!
    This is great news.
    Why haven’t we heard about it? Obama doesnt want the whole world to know he’s being challenged so the MSM wont report it.
    I have never owned a gun. I have always sworn against them, unless you hunt for your food in times of need. However, I have strongly been considering buying a gun and a lot of ammunition (if the ammo shortage continues who knows) to protect myself and my family if needed.
    These are some tough days and I don’t know how bad things are going to get for us regular Americans, but I am prepared to head for the hills(mountains) and live there.
    I fear for us all with Obama in the White House, he will do all he can to destroy our Constitution and our civil liberties. He is already pecking away at them.
    He does not want the average American to own a gun, precisely why I think I should get one. He doesnt want us to be able to protect ourselves in any way.
    He wants to take over our way of communicating, the internet, then we cant plan rallies or voice our opinions. He wants to police our freedom of speech. Look what he’s done to the MSM!
    Whatever Obama says, I will do the opposite, he is not looking out for me or my fellow Americans.

  • “I fear for us all with Obama in the White House, he will do all he can to destroy our Constitution and our civil liberties. He is already pecking away at them.”

    He’s not “pecking,” he’s blowing it away huge chunks at a time. Have you not been visited by the ACORN goons yet?

    Well, it’s possible that you wouldn’t know because some of them are not making contact with the homeowners. They are collecting the GPS coordinates of our front doors. All of our front doors.

    I highly recommend that firearm & lessons for everyone in the family if you’ve never owned one!

    Take care, everyone.

    God bless America!

  • I have one of the %&*^%^@$% frakkin’ unicorns running around my house breaking shit and getting into all sorts of trouble and driving the dog and cat nuts. It keeps trying to hypmotize us and it just won’t leave!

  • There are several of those unicorns in my neighborhood. So far I have been lucky and they haven’t gotten into my house yet, but I think they took the GPS coordinates.

    I think that the unicorns can smell gunpowder and that is why they haven’t gotten in here yet.

  • Leaping Spark -

    We can only hope the majority of states will pass similar legislation and send a clear message to Obama to F off. We don’t need anymore interference in our lives from our Communistic, closet Muslim, Kenyan President Baraka Hussien Mohammed Obama.

  • no-nonsence-nancy -

    Go Montanna!! I may have to move out of PA. Although our gov. was strongly for Hillary in the primaries right up until the end. I don’t know what he really thinks of BO.

  • I fed my unicorn to my dogs. I know a lot of people who are going to be very happy about this legislation, besides us.

    • My dog keeps chasing mine but he is just too damn small to catch the bastard. Maybe I’ll catch it and feed it to him, yes?

  • David Gagin -

    Oklahoma, another state passing legislation which defies the “Wisdom” of the Government. I got this in email today, but I don’t yet know its source:

    An update from Oklahoma.

    The state law passed today, 37 to 9, had a few liberals in the mix, an amendment to place the Ten Commandments on the front entrance to the state capitol. The feds in D.C., along with the ACLU, said it would be a mistake. Hey this is a conservative state, based on Christian values…! Guess what……….We did it anyway.

    We recently passed a law in the state to incarcerate all illegal immigrants, and ship them back to where they came from, unless they want to get a green card and become an American citizen. They all scattered. Hope we didn’t send any of them to your state. This was against the advice of the Federal Government, and the ACLU, they said it would be a mistake.

    Guess what……….we did it anyway..

    Yesterday we passed a law to include DNA samples from any and all illegals to the Oklahoma database, for criminal investigative purposes. Pelosi said it was unconstitutional.

    Guess what……..We did it anyway.

    Several weeks ago, we passed a law, declaring Oklahoma as a Sovereign state, not under the Federal Government directives. That, for your information, makes Oklahoma and Texas the only states to do so. Guess what………More states are likely to follow. Louisiana, Alabama, Georgia, both Carolina’s, Tennessee, Kentucky, Missouri, Arkansas, West Virginia, just to name a few. Should Mississippi act, so will Florida. Save your confederate money, it appears the South is about to rise up once again.

    The federal Government has made bold steps to take away our guns. Oklahoma, a week ago, passed a law confirming people in this state have the right to bear arms and transport them in their vehicles. I’m sure that was a set back for the Kennedy’s and Ms Pelosi.

    Guess what……….We did it anyway.

    By the way, Obama does not like any of this.

    Guess what….who cares…were doing it anyway.

    End of Quotation.

    If it’s real, it’s really good news. I offer it here to see if any of you know more about it. I wouldn’t consider it information until it’s checked out.

  • dfromtexas -

    Leo Berman is trying to get this to pass…pray for us. We’re fed up down here!

  • SimonSays -


  • craterray -

    thank god there are still freedom loving americans that will defend the cause of freedom. Way to go Montana. I hope many other states will follow. Getting the word out seems to be difficult. I think there would be a flood of new residents in Montana. God Bless Montana.

  • Erecose -

    I support Montana 100% and we all should send the congress and governor of Montana or any state for that matter that passes any laws like this an email or phone call saying how much we support them.

  • Excited -

    This is very exciting, thank God sanity is beginning to rear its head in these unprecedented times. From Michigan, we love you Montana, Utah, Texas, Oklahoma and future states with the guts to stand up for the rights of the citizens! We will stand shoulder to shoulder against what is happening to our national government. Keep up the fight and let us know what we can do to help!!

    After 52 years on the ground my wife and I are purchasing our first handgun and taking lessons in the Nevada desert. Never thought I’d be a gun owner but neither did the other 5,000 people I met at the gun shop.

  • Any texas resident out there – please email me about the communities you live in. Texas is at the top of the list right now for my next move.
