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.
