Default Movin' to Montana soon...

...not for detal floss...for GUNS! Looks like Montana is pressing the states righs issue with this new law signed in last week. Let's see how or if Washington responds...

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.

Silencers made in Montana and sold 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.

Well, it fits in with Sotomayor's interpretation of Heller v. DC.

This could be very interesting if it's really true. Don't mean to doubt you personally Matt, but there's so much BS on the web...

State's Rights used to be the codeword for segregation, at least in the South. Since those days are over, I think some re-assertion of state-level control is appropriate, IF we have legislators who are willing to do the work required. Here in FL the state legislature is pretty much a rubber-stamp for the governor, the only thing that wakes them up is when some stuntaz do wheelies with their ****s haninging out in front of their 16 y/o daughters. Then they get real busy. CA seems to have a much more active legislature, for better or worse. Montana always been famous for defying the speed limits etc.

It's more humane to kill the game without frightening them first.

That would be "worse". Utah's legislature meets only 6 weeks per year. Balanced budget! There's not enough time for them to create too much mischief.

I'm a bit confused folks.Can individual state law over-ride federal US law?Can states pick and choose what they like and/or dislike about federal law or do they have to vote on each one ?
Your cops cause me endless confusion too;Local,State,Federal etc. etc.
Things are alot simpler here..................do what you are told or get in trouble
