Montana has joined Texas and Alaska in passing legislation to keep the Federal Government out of the Second Amendment.
The law basically says that if a gun is going to stay within the borders of that state, the federal government has no business in the matter. The Tenth Amendment: IT'S ALIVE!!!
"What's going on is that people all over the country have decided, 'Enough is enough,' " said Kevin Gutzman, a professor at Western Connecticut State University and the author of "Who Killed the Constitution?" "This is supposed to be a federal system, but instead Congress seems to think it can legislate anything it wants."
Gun-control groups have blasted the law. Paul Helmke, president of the Brady Campaign to Prevent Gun Violence, called it "wrong from the constitutional side and wrong from the policy side." Sit down and shut up, Mr. Helmke.
Congratulations to Montana, Texas, and Alaska. May the rest of us join you soon. Btw...the picture you see is the Lady Smith I love to carry!
