Update – Montana Stands Up to the Feds

MT Gun Flag

On April 21st I did a blog post regarding the Montana Made Firearms Bill called Montana Stands Up to the Feds!  The bill exempts firearms made and retained in Montana from all federal gun regulation.  This is a simple issue of the Tenth Amendment and the federal government unconstitutionally encroaching on state rights.

The next step in the process took place on Thursday when a lawsuit was filed.  You can find the article on the lawsuit entitled, Montana Gun Suit Challenges Federal Authority.  I support this bill; it is a vital issue for our country and will help define the county we live in.  It seems to me, not being an attorney, that this is an open and shut case.  This bill is legal under the Constitution and no laws or decisions by any court can change that.

Montana making National News

Vodpod videos no longer available.

The Glen Beck Show did a series about The Civilest” of Wars between the federal and state governments.  The show mentioned how many states are finally standing up for their rights.  They are challenging the federal government authority delegated through Amendment 10 of the United States Constitution.

The citizens of this country can make a difference by helping to challenge a failing system within our democracy.  Now is the time for the people to tell the federal government-Don’t Tread On Me or there will be consequences.  Without us uniting on our principles we cannot stop the seeds of socialism being sowed.

The best part of the series was the appearance of Rep. Joel Boniek R-Livingston and Gary Marbut President of Montana Shooting Sports Association.  They talked about the passage of HB-246 (read about it here on the TSNROUNDUP blog ) and how it has become a key issue in our state.  The courts are now acting upon the issue through it seems they always don’t listen to the thoughts of the people.

The video from the show is posted above for your viewing purposes.

City tries to infringe upon Civil Liberties: Part III

red_light_cameraMontana has finally done the unthinkable.  It has prevented the beginning stages of Big Brother. The governor signed HB-531 into law banning all red light cameras as mentioned in my previous post. The unholy contract between the city of Bozeman and Redflex has been ripped into pieces.

The citizens of Montana can rejoice!!!  They do not need to worry about their privacy being invaded by the watchman eye of the government. The city officials will now be in check. They will be forced to take down all their cameras on the Main Street.

City tries to infringe upon Civil Liberties: Part II

red-light-cameras

Once again, big brother continues to pry into the lives of private citizens. The city of Bozeman persist that the citizens want more government regulations, such as the red light cameras. They are doing whatever is necessary to increase their authority. I cannot figure out why the local government officials don’t get a clue?

According to an article in the Bozeman Daily Chronicle :

Chris Kukulski, Bozeman City Manager, said that Bozeman’s staff and elected officials spent the better part of two years researching, taking public input, and developing a local ordinance to allow the cameras. He goes on to say, “it doesn’t seem right for state lawmakers to throw that out the window.”
