behalf of Montana gun owners
2020 Candidate Questionnaires
Introduction: MSSA is the primary entity asserting the
right of Montana citizens to keep and bear arms. Over the past
30 years or so, MSSA has gotten 68 pro-gun (mostly) and pro-hunting
bills enacted into law. Montana voters are concerned about
laws relating to firearms and MSSA keeps them informed about what
impact political candidates may have on those laws.
