Montana Governor Greg Gianforte Signs Constitutional Carry Into Law

2021 appears to be a big year for Constitutional Carry.

Published

on

On February 18, 2021, Montana Governor Greg Gianforte signed Constitutional Carry into law.

Under HB 102, lawful individuals who are already eligible to carry under state law can now carry a firearm without a permit.

“Governor Gianforte is a true friend of Montana gun owners,” stated Gun Owners of America’s Senior Vice President Erich Pratt. “The previous, anti-gun governor Steve Bullock kept vetoing legislation to expand permitless carry to the entire state. But with Gianforte, we now have a true Second Amendment champion sitting at the governor’s desk.”

 Gianforte’s predecessor, Steve Bullock, was the primary obstacle behind Constitutional Carry’s failure to pass in previous years. Republican incumbent Senator Steve Daines decisively thrashed Bullock in the 2020 elections for Montana’s Senate seat, sending a strong message that going against the will of gun owners will not be tolerated in Montana.

GOA endorsed Gianforte’s bid for Montana Governor. Before Constitutional Carry was passed, Montana law expressly prohibited carry without a permit within “the official boundaries of a city or town.” However, Gary Marbut of the Montana Shooting Sports Association, the premier gun lobby in Montana, observed that Constitutional Carry was not in effect in less than 1% of the state. HB 102 effectively universalizes Constitutional Carry throughout the entire state.

Advocates of Constitutional Carry have been on a nice win streak lately. BLP reported on Utah’s passage of Constitutional Carry last week. With Montana’s passage of Constitutional Carry, there are now 18 Constitutional Carry states in the nation.

 Jordan Stein of GOA listed off America’s other Constitutional Carry states:

 Arkansas, Alaska, Arizona, Idaho, Kansas, Kentucky, Maine, Mississippi, Missouri, New Hampshire, North Dakota, Oklahoma, South Dakota, Vermont, West Virginia, and Wyoming.

 Undoubtedly, Constitutional Carry is the Right’s most successful legislative movement of the last 30 years. The Right should strike while the iron is hot and make every Red state in the country a Constitutional Carry state.

Arizona House Passes Law to Nullify Biden’s Federal Gun Control

Arizona won’t recognize gun control.

Published

on

The Arizona House passed a law to nullify federal gun control measures last last month, establishing the state as a Second Amendment sanctuary. State Rep. Leo Biasiucci’s Second Amendment Firearm Freedom Act would nullify any new federal gun control laws restricting gun rights, citing the unconstitutionality of the Biden administration’s support for “assault weapons” bans, attacks on online firearms transactions, and forced registry of semiautomatic rifles as NFA items.

The law passed the Arizona State House in a 31-29 party line vote in February.

We’re Second Amendment friendly. We love our law-abiding citizens, gun owners,” Biasiucci told the Epoch Times. “So I have a bill HB 2111 … it’s very simple. It says if the federal government changes anything at the federal level, Arizona is not gonna play. We’re not going to use money. We’re not gonna use resources to comply—if they ban AR-15 and they try to come in and start arresting people. Not gonna happen in our state.”

The law- or a similar proposal currently being prepared by Arizona Senators- has a strong chance of passing Arizona’s State Senate, where Republicans hold a two-seat lead. If signed into law, Arizona would be the biggest state to pass a Second Amendment nullification provision that blocks federal gun control proposals, following Missouri, Wyoming, South Dakota, Tennessee, Kansas, and Alaska.

The Second Amendment Firearm Freedom Act would institute state criminal penalties for law enforcement officials that attempt to enforce illegal gun grabs.

Biasiucci touted the law as an invitation for firearms companies to move to Arizona, citing respect for gun laws and a pro-small and medium business economic atmosphere.

I ask all these gun manufacturers come to Arizona. We got low taxes. We’re trying to drop our income tax again this year. We’re gonna try to move it to a flat tax. We have a lot of land, business-friendly. We’re open for business. So I tell everybody: hey, come to Arizona, the land of the free over there, the last frontier.
