Montana: Preemption Strengthening Legislation Referred to Senate Committee

Yesterday, the Montana House passed legislation to strengthen Montana’s state preemption laws, House Bill 325, by a 57 to 42 vote.  HB 325 has been referred to the Senate Judiciary Committee for further consideration.  Please contact your state Senator and strongly urge them to SUPPORT House Bill 325 when it comes up for a vote.


Local municipalities in Montana have stretched the state’s preemption laws to their own ends by passing anti-gun laws ranging from criminalizing private transfers to banning where people can lawfully carry a firearm for self-defense. These types of unnecessary anti-gun ordinances impose further burdens on law-abiding gun owners in Montana.  House Bill 325 seeks to enhance Montana’s current preemption laws by further restricting the ability of local municipalities to enact a complex patchwork of gun laws throughout the state.

Again, please contact your state Senator and strongly urge them to SUPPORT House Bill 325 when it comes up for a vote.
