Skip to comments.Montana Governor Signs New Gun Law-(DARES Obama To Challenge it!)

The 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 Obama's 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 .
Silencers made in Montana and sol in Montana would be fully legal and not registered. As a note silencers were first used before the 007 movies as a device to enable one to hunt without disturbing neighbors and scaring game. They were also useful as devices to control noise when practicing so as to not disturb the neighbors.
Silencers work best with a bolt-action rifle. There is a long barrel and the chamber is closed tight so as to direct all the gases though the silencer at the tip of the barrel. Semi-auto pistols and revolvers do not really muffle the sound very well except on the silver screen. The revolvers bleed gas out with the sound all over the place. The semi-auto pistols bleed the gases out when the slide recoils back.
Silencers are maybe nice for snipers picking off enemy soldiers even though they reduce velocity but not very practical for hit men shooting pistols in crowded places. Silencers were useful tools for gun enthusiasts and hunters.
There would be no firearm registration, serial numbers, criminal records check, waiting periods or paperwork required. So in a short period of time there would be millions and millions of unregistered untraceable guns in Montana . Way to go Montana !
A little more detail and a little less hyperbole would make this a little better thread.

I wish there was some...
Feel free to do a google search. I even posted the Google news results. All four of them. And two don’t even apply.
I mean I think the legislature would have known full well what the feds would use to “invalidate” their ruling. They are implicitly threatening to ignore any court order by passing this law.
Soon, many. There’s a lot of pent-up demand for some items (short barrels, suppressors, unregistered, etc.).
Putting on the tin foil hat for a moment, what if this is a devious plan to force a (corrupt) supreme court to rule on Federal powers, and the Federal power to control firearms?
This could be a devastating blow to gun ownership in this country as well, if this is a scam to establish precedent in the top courts.
I heard about this earlier on Beck with Judge Napolitano. They mentioned that the Governor would be making a speech at the signing. If anybody finds a transcript it sounds like it would certainly be worth posting.
I always said if I won the lottery.... 1000 acres of private land in Montana or Wyoming.
I see. Do you know you do know that Gonzales vs. Raich is not a court order, right?
This USSC decision from 2005 specifically states that any item produced is “never more than an instant away from the interstate market” and can thus be regulated by the congress.
This is decided precedent (wrong, but decided) and will not likely be revisited by an Obama court.
Dig up the bill and read it, rather than relying on intepretations by the confused.
Your tinfoil hat is on too tight.
This law is a Good Thing, even though it invites a big fight which might not be won.
I think Bushmaster should move to Montana. Maybe I should move to Montana. You know, raise me up a crop of dental floss.
Montana isn't very cold at all. Unless of course you are one who has lived in the warm southern states all your life- a tender foot.
Montana has the best of both worlds, mild winters, nice mountains, good hunting and nice summers. Buy a nice ranch at the foot of the mountains and you're in paradise, close to both mountains and sand.
Are we? That's good news! Who is drafting the bill?
Note: no interstate commerce was involved with the raising, waxing, boxing, sale or end use of my floss.
Not ONE of which I can access at work - they're blocked either for "social" or "weapons" - so this is a self ping to read up on it at home.
