DON’T TAKE AWAY OUR FREEDOM TO MAKE LOCAL DECISIONS
LR-130 ends more than 130 years of local citizens deciding how to
keep their communities safe. LR-130 is a sweeping proposal brought
to you by lobbyists and out-of-touch politicians trying to take
away your rights and eliminate local decision making in Montana.
This measure is so confusing and poorly written that law
enforcement, local officials, and legal experts disagree on its
meaning, its consequences, and even how it could be enforced. We
should not be passing confusing laws that will very likely be
challenged in court nor creating uncertainty in our schools and
public spaces during an already difficult time.
Why change something that’s working? Montanans agree that we need
to protect our Second Amendment rights, including our right to
protect ourselves, and we already have strong laws in Montana to
ensure these rights. LR-130 is a reckless attempt to re-write
current gun laws and will have serious consequences for our
ability to make local decisions.
LR-130 is unnecessary. Montanans know and trust their local school
boards, law enforcement, and locally elected officials to keep our
communities safe and protect our rights. LR-130 raises questions
and confusion and creates problems rather than solving them,
threatening local decision making in Montana communities.
For these reasons, LR-130 is opposed by veterans, school boards,
nurses, ranchers, doctors, hunters, and local sheriffs and law
enforcement across Montana. Additionally, it is opposed by the
Montana League of Cities and Towns, representing all 127
Voting NO on LR-130 recognizes the value of making decisions at
the community level. We can’t trust overreaching state
legislators, politicians, and lobbyists in Helena to decide what’s
best for us and our local communities. We can protect our second
amendment rights and Montana’s long history of local
decision-making by rejecting this confusing and unnecessary
