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.

Please contact the members of the Senate Judiciary Committee in support of HB 304 and HB 459. You can contact the entire committee by clicking here, and selecting “Senate Judiciary” from the committee drop down list.
