Whaddup, Montana?

The Hills Are Alive With The Sound of Slaughter

Anger Management Exhibit A, Montana Gov. Greg Gianforte —mostly remembered for his election-eve body-slamming attack on The Guardian political reporter Ben Jacobs in May 2017 and subsequent conviction— has signed a new law that, well, is probably illegal. You see, it tells local law enforcement not to enforce federal gun laws.

Gov. Greg Gianforte on Friday signed a bill that prohibits state and local law enforcement in Montana from enforcing federal bans on firearms, ammunition and magazines…

Gianforte, a Republican, said in announcing his decision to sign the bill that it would protect Second Amendment rights in the state. Earlier this year he signed into law a bill that relaxes gun restrictions in Montana, allowing concealed firearms to be carried in most places without a permit and expanding the list of places where guns can be carried to include university campuses and the state Capitol.

I guess Montana wants to get some of that sweet, sweet press attention for mass slaughter?   Ammosexuals and Gundamentalists are welcome! Come for the big sky, stay for the target practice.

    Montana is the 3rd deadliest state for gun violence in the country: in 2010 there were 16.6 gun deaths per 100,000 people in the state. That’s 60 percent higher than the national average of 10.3 per 100,000.1…
    In 2009, Montana had the 14th highest rate of guns sold in the state that went on to be used in crimes in other states. These “crime gun exports” are a key marker of illegal gun trafficking…

    So by making it easy to buy guns and please the gun lobbies, us folks in the surrounding states have to live (or not) with increased gun violence in our own communities…

      This is an argument for Biden’s infrastructure bill (actual name – American Jobs Plan) so that states like this don’t need to depend on weapons sales just to get by.
      It’s a specious argument, but it might have more merit than his arguments for his save -the-guns bill.

    Is Gov. GUNgianforte also making Montana a refuge for the nuts who commit mass shootings in other states, thus, saving them from arrest and prosecution and protecting their 2nd Amendment rights?

    Maybe Giantfarte’s real goal here is to have the feds challenge the law because it conflicts with federal law, then argue to the Supreme Court that it’s the federal law which is illegal on Second Amendment grounds. It could actually work.

    In any case, considering how long some cities have been able to get away with refusing to enforce federal immigration laws, it’s hard to argue that a whole state won’t be able to get away with refusing to enforce federal gun laws, whatever the legalities.
