    WT? No carry in banks?

    What the heck Montana? Really?

    It's really illegal to conceal carry in banks in Montana?

    You guys need to fix this stuff.

    Although it is Illegal to Carry a Concealed Firearm in a Bank in Montana, per Montana Law 45-8-328(b), unless the area is one that either 45-8-328(b)(i) or 45-8-328(b)(ii) covers, the Law ONLY applies to Concealed Firearms.
    Montana is unique in this aspect, because; Montana Law only disauthorizes Concealed Carry in 3 specific places, the other two are: 1. Restricted Areas of Public Builidngs AND 2. Bars/Restaurants where Alcohol is served for Consumption-on-Premesis.
    Open Carry in all three aforementioned locations is Legal.
    Montana Law 45-8-328(2) bars any Defense under this Law as to whether or not a Person has a Concealed Carry Permit. This Crime is Punishable, per Montana Law, with a Fine of up to $500 and up to 6 Months in Jail.
    It is also Illegal to Carry a Concealed, but Concealed ONLY, Firearm while Under the Influence of an Intoxicating Substance, 45-8-327. Again, as before, Open Carry, whilst, Intoxicated, is not Illegal, under Montana Law, nor is being Intoxicated in Public.

    That's weird.

    This thread was mostly for humor, but I learned something.
