Dear MSSA Friends,
MSSA's flagship bill this session has been introduced as Senate Bill 122. This bill, introduced by Senator Matt Rosendale, is to encourage the manufacture of ammunition components in Montana, to insure the availability of components so we will continue to have ammo, so our RKBA doesn't evaporate for lack of ammo. I can't stress too much how important this bill is.
To get this bill passed will REQUIRE your active involvement. SB 122 has been assigned to the Senate Judiciary Committee (good for us), but no public hearing on the bill has been set yet. The chairman of Senate Judiciary Committee will try to bundle our bills before his committee so those of you who can travel to Helena to support them will be able to kill several birds with one stone - appear in support of multiple bills with one trip to Helena.
All of you must become familiar with the legislative process, and how you can interface with and affect that process. That's why I've written a careful explanation of all of that and have posted it for your use at:
Please study this page.
Folks, freedom is not free. It requires your active participation!
You will be getting more frequent emails from me as the legislative session heats up. Please do not blow them off, or get to inured to them. Please commit time from your busy life to being involved, either electronically or with travel, in support of the pro-gun bills MSSA will push FOR YOU in the Montana Legislature this session.
Stay tuned for more.
