Montana: Multiple Pro-Gun Bills to be Heard This Week

This Thursday, March 5, at 10:00 a.m., the Senate Judiciary Committee is scheduled to hear House Bill 204 in Hearing Room 303.  Sponsored by state Representative Greg Hertz (R-12), HB 204 would protect shooting ranges (and other recreational providers) by allowing them to obtain liability waivers from recreation users for the inherent risks associated with sporting and recreational activities.  HB 204 has already been passed in the House of Representatives successfully by a 69 to 31 vote.

This Friday, March 6, at 9:00 a.m., the Senate Judiciary Committee is scheduled to hear House Bill 298 in Hearing Room 303.  Sponsored by state Representative Bill Harris (R-29), HB 298 (as previously reported) expands Montanan’s freedom to legally carry a concealed firearm without a Montana concealed weapons permit (CWP) by harmonizing the carry laws present in city limits with those outside city limits.  Currently outside the city limits, residents are not required to obtain a concealed weapons permit in order to carry a concealed firearm.  This permitless carry legislation would bring conformity across the state and give Montanans the freedom to choose the best method of carrying for them, based on their attire, gender and/or physical attributes. 

Please urge members of the Senate Judiciary Committee to SUPPORT both HB 204 and HB 298.  You can leave a message for any Senator at (406) 444-4800 or use the contact information provided below.
