Montana: Several Pro-Gun Bills to Be Heard on Monday

Friday, March 15, 2013

The following bills, sponsored by state Representative Krayton Kerns (R-58), are scheduled to be heard by the Senate Judiciary Committee this Monday, March 18 at 9:00 a.m. in hearing room 303 of the state Capitol.

House Bill 304 would eliminate the need for a concealed weapon permit within city limits which is already the law outside city limits. HB 304 would only apply to individuals who are “eligible to possess a handgun under state or federal law.”

House Bill 459 would prohibit a health care provider from refusing service to a patient who refuses to answer questions about firearm ownership and would prohibit the requirement that a person, as a condition of receiving medical treatment, complete forms that include questions about firearm ownership.
