"Firearms Freedom Act" - Montana leads; many states follow.

Sheriffs First (or no more Wacos).  This bill would make it a state crime for a federal officer to arrest, search, or seize in Montana without first getting the written permission of the elected county sheriff of the county in which the action is to take place.  Locally-elected sheriffs are accountable to the people and are supposed to the the chief law enforcement officer of the county, bar none.  This bill puts teeth into the expectation that federal agents must operate with the approval of the sheriff, or not at all.  There are exceptions for "hot pursuit", customs and border patrol, corrupt sheriffs, and more.
