Montana Becomes 18th Constitutional Carry State

https://www.guns.com/news/2021/02/22/montana-becomes-18th-constitutional-carry-state

Montana Gov. Greg Gianforte last week signed a bill recognizing that law-abiding Montana gun owners 18 or older may carry a concealed firearm without written authorization from the government.

The measure approved by the Republican governor, HB 102, was approved 68-30 by the state House and 29-21 by the state Senate, largely along party lines earlier this month. Gianforte signed the proposal last Thursday.

"Our Second Amendment-protected right to keep and bear arms is part of Montana’s, and our nation’s, rich heritage," said Gianforte in a statement. "We have a responsibility to preserve it."

The new law strengthens the state's self-defense laws by removing a patchwork of “gun-free zones” such as in metropolitan areas, banks, and bars. Further, it limits how public universities and colleges can establish such zones. What it does not do is change who can legally possess a firearm, affect laws governing the misuse of a gun, modify the state's self-defense laws, or remove the ability for private property owners to prohibit firearms.

1. So can "law abiding citizens" carry into the Montana state house?

Just curious if this is another one of those "we get protected at work, the rest of you? Not so much" kind of scams.

2. Blood in the streets, etc., etc., etc.

Panic, finger-point, hand-wring, threaten to boycott, "thank {insert name of supernatural deity here} I don't live in that state".

There, took care of all the replies from the gun-control side.

Prediction: the homicide rate in 2022, 2026, and 2030 will be statistically identical to 2021.

3. Ah, yes- I remember the bloodbath that happened on Texas state college campuses...

 

...after it was allowed there.

Of course, few remember it as it happened right around the time of the Bowling Green Massacre...
