Montana: House Passes Constitutional/Permitless Carry Legislation

Earlier this week, the Montana House of Representatives passed constitutional/permitless carry legislation, House Bill 262.  HB 262 has now been transferred over to the Senate where it will await a committee referral.

Sponsored by state Representative Bill Harris, HB 262 would allow any law-abiding individual who can legally possess a firearm to carry a handgun for self-defense in Montana without having to obtain a permit to do so.  This bill recognizes a law-abiding adult’s unconditional Right to Keep and Bear Arms for self-defense in the manner he or she chooses.  Self-defense situations are difficult, if not impossible, to anticipate.  Accordingly, a law-abiding adult’s right to defend himself or herself in such situations should not be conditioned by government-mandated time delays and taxes.

Please contact your state Senator and politely urge them to SUPPORT House bill 262 when it comes up for a vote.
