Today, the Montana Senate approved House Bill 262 by a 31-18 vote. Having already been approved by the House, HB 262 will now be sent to the desk of Governor Steve Bullock where it will await his consideration. Please contact Governor Bullock and strongly urge him to sign this important self-defense legislation into law.
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.
