Yesterday, the Montana House passed self-defense legislation, House Bill 102, by a 66 to 31 vote. Having now passed out of the chamber of origin, HB 102 will be sent to the Senate and may be referred to the Judiciary Committee for further consideration. Please contact committee members and ask that they SUPPORT House Bill 102.
House Bill 102 will strengthen Montana’s self-defense laws by allowing law-abiding Montana gun owners to carry a firearm for self-defense throughout the state without first having to obtain a government mandated permit to do so. Further, this bill will remove some of Montana’s “gun-free zones” from the list of prohibited places and stop the unnecessary disarming of Montanans as they go about their day-to-day lives.
Again, it is important that you please contact members of the Senate Judiciary Committee and ask them to SUPPORT House Bill 102.
