Montana: Pro-Gun Legislation Sent to the Governor's Desk Today

Please Contact Governor Steve Bullock in Support of House Bill 298 and House Bill 203.

On March 12, the Montana Senate passed House Bill 298 on third reading by a 28 to 21 vote.  Sponsored by state Representative Bill Harris (R-29), HB 298 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 uniformity 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. 

Also on March 12, the Montana Senate passed House Bill 203 on third reading by a 27 to 22 vote.  Sponsored by state Representative Art Wittich (R-68), HB 203 would prohibit the use of any public funds, personnel, or property to enforce any federal law or regulation that seeks to ban the ownership or possession of firearms or magazines. 

House Bill 298 and House Bill 203 have been sent to Governor Steve Bullock’s desk for his consideration.  It is important that you please contact Governor Bullock at (406) 444-3111 or by email and politely urge him to sign into law House Bill 298 and House Bill 203.
