As Joe Biden pushes to strip gun right from Americans, some states are pushing back. Montana is the latest to sign laws aiming to protect gun rights from our current President’s attempts to further and further restrict the fundamental rights guaranteed by our Constitution.
“Today, I proudly signed Rep. [Jedediah] Hinkle’s law prohibiting federal overreach into our Second Amendment-protected rights, including any federal ban on firearms,” Montana Governor Greg Gianforte wrote on Twitter. “I will always protect our #2A right to keep and bear arms.”
The law is simple. It prevents state employees from enforcing federal regulation or using state funds to buy specific types of ammo, magazines, and guns. This is one of many attempts to protect Americans from Joe Biden. Fox News reports:
Arizona Gov. Doug Ducey signed a similar law earlier this month.
In Oklahoma, a bill that would designate that state as a Second Amendment “Sanctuary State” is headed for Gov. Kevin Stitt’s desk.
Arkansas Gov. Asa Hutchinson vetoed a similar measure Friday, saying it would jeopardize law enforcement and the public.
Opponents of the Montana law have said it would make it more difficult for local law enforcement to collaborate with federal authorities on issues beyond gun access when such collaboration is essential to protect public safety, including in cases of domestic violence and drug offenses.
As Democrats try to strip away our freedoms, Republicans are hyper-focused on protecting them. Remember that in the midterm elections and especially in the 2024 presidential elections. It’s not too late yet. But it might soon be.
