ATF Vs Montana Made Guns

ATF Tries to Revoke “Montana Made”
State Sovereignty Laws

We all predicted this would happen.

In a move typical for that fear-mongering organization with an ever-swelling acronym, the BATFE has written gun dealers in the states of Montana and Tennessee to let them know the BATFE will be disregarding the states’ sovereign gun laws.

The “Montana Made” law, just like Tennessee’s Firearms Freedom Act, is very simple.

Much of the claimed federal authority to regulate firearm sales and transfers stems from a liberal interpretation of every American tyrant’s favorite subterfuge, the “interstate commerce” clause. In essence, this is what gives the BATFE its nasty teeth.

With this in mind, Montana correctly understood that any weapon made in Montana by Montana residents and sold in Montana to Montana residents is Montana’s business and Montana’s business alone.

Montana thus sought to take charge of its firearms industry with the application of a simple truism:

Any gun made in Montana by Montana residents and sold in Montana to Montana residents is intrastate commerce, not “interstate commerce,” and thus does not full under the purview of the federal government.

Potentially, the state would be able to say goodbye to NICS checks; Brady background checks; NFA taxes, bans and NFA databases — and most importantly, federal “assault weapons” bans, which Montana and Tennessee rightly anticipated.

    Bravo to Montana, very clever. I pray most other states do the same. Keep up the good work for freedom.

    The work ahead of us will be difficult, but we must start to retrieve our rights inch by inch, just as they have been usurped by those who lead with disdain for our constitution. Begin by recognizing who they are, who their associates are and create our own list to share with patriots that will join to vote them out of power. Let the lists begin.
