Montana: Pro-Gun/Pro-Hunting Bills Go to the Governor for His Consideration

Thursday, March 28, 2013

Please call and e-mail Governor Steve Bullock and urge him to sign these pro-gun bills into law!

Senate Bill 145, introduced by state Senator Frederick Moore (R-20), provides important confidentiality and privacy protection for concealed weapon permit holders.  SB 145 passed in the state Senate by a 37 to 13 vote on January 31 and passed in the state House by an 88 to 9 vote on March 13.

House Bill 302, introduced by state Representative Krayton Kerns (R-58), would prevent state enforcement of any federal ban on semi-automatic firearms and/or “large capacity” magazines.  HB 302 originally passed in the state House by a 56 to 42 vote on February 22, passed in the state Senate by a 28 to 21 vote on March 13 and passed state House concurrence by a 62 to 35 vote on March 20.  For more information on so-called “assault weapons” and “large capacity” magazines, click here.

House Bill 27, introduced by state Representative Ted Washburn (R-69), authorizes the use of suppressors while hunting wolves after the general deer and elk season.  HB 27 passed in the state House by a 63 to 33 vote on February 6 and passed in the state Senate by a 29 to 20 vote on March 13.

Please call AND e-mail Governor  Steve Bullock (D) today and respectfully urge him to sign into law Senate Bill 145 and House Bills 302 and 27.

House Bill 205, sponsored by Representative Krayton Kerns (R-58), is currently awaiting final approval by the state Senate.  This bill would legalize the use of suppressors for all hunting.  While suppressors do not eliminate the sound of a firearm, they do reduce the muzzle report in a manner similar to the way that a muffler reduces exhaust noise from a vehicle. The benefits associated with suppressor use include increased accuracy due to reduced recoil and muzzle blast, protection from hearing damage and reduced noise pollution.  The state Senate could vote on HB 205 soon, so please contact your state Senator and encourage his or her support for this hunting reform legislation.  For more information on firearms and suppressors, click here
