Vote Yes on LR-130
Limiting government overreach. LR-130 opponents make
a big deal about local control, yet 62% of the funding (as of July
2020) reported by the "NO on LR-130" committee came from New York
City and billionaire Michael Bloomberg's Everytown group.
How does opponent's reliance on wealthy influence from New York
fit with opponents' cry for local control?
The people and the Legislature have always asserted control of
local governments. Montana Code Annotated (Montana laws) has
859 pages of fine print that controls what local governments can
or cannot do. Otherwise, local governments could recklessly
abridge our freedoms. LR-130 is about limiting government and
protecting our rights, not about local control.
LR-130 is certainly constitutional. Our U.S. and
Montana constitutions both state our right to bare arms shall not
be infringed. Protecting a constitutional right cannot be
'unconstitutional.' LR-130 protects our rights. To say
otherwise is just wrong.
LR-130 is indeed essential. During legislative
hearings on LR-130, opponents gave examples of 15 different local
governments that are currently violating the constitutional rights
of Montana citizens with local gun control efforts. This local
government overreach must be stopped by LR-130.
Rein in illegal gun control by local governments.
Improve Montana's gun laws. Prevent a patchwork and legal
minefield of local gun control across Montana.
Save your guns. Save your Right to Keep and Bear
Arms. Vote YES on LR-130.
