Montana will ban government officials from implementing or enforcing federal firearms bans
A week after Joe Biden announced his intention to disarm the American people, the Montana government took a decisive step to curtail the powers of local officials.
From now on, state and local law enforcement officials in Montana will be deprived of the opportunity to directly or indirectly influence the rights of Americans protected by the Constitution, in particular, the Second Amendment will remain in force, and the residents will retain the right to decide whether they need firearms or not.
The Republican-controlled Senate voted Wednesday 30-20 in favor of the measure.
“We don’t know what that’s going to look like, but I don’t have any hope that it’s not going to look bad to those of us who appreciate the Second Amendment,” Republican Sen. Tom McGillvray said, according to The Washington Times.
Another wave of debate about the need to take away AR-15 assault rifles and high-capacity magazines from the Americans, arose after a series of mass shootings in Colorado and Georgia, the total number of victims reached 18 people.
The opposition, represented by Sen. Susan Webber, a Democrat, said their stance remains unchanged and they will continue efforts to remove weapons from communities.
“States can’t limit federal law. That’s basic,” Webber said.
Republican Gov. Greg Gianforte signed a bill a month ago relaxing the requirement for wearing concealed firearms. After the signing, university campuses and the state Capitol were included in the list of places where Americans are allowed to carry firearms.
