Montana Knows How to Make the Most of Gun Rights

“Don’t mess with Montana’s gun rights.”

That’s the general message that comes across in most of the legislation and laws that surround the Second Amendment in “Big Sky” country. If you have ever been to Montana then you know it’s a gorgeous place full of wilderness landscaping, wide open spaces, and snow capped peaks in the desolate winter. The population of the entire state of Montana is around one million fine folks, and to put that in comparison to a major city, Los Angeles has almost four million people in just one city. 

Let’s take a look at how this state has managed to militantly defend one of the most important constitutional freedoms.

Gun Ownership is Common

Out of those million people in Montana, it’s estimated that around 52 percent of them are gun owners. They are passionate about the heritage of gun ownership dating back to the inception of our great country. Hunting is also prevalent in this great northwestern state. With an abundant wildlife population that includes elk, deer, bears, geese, ducks, and just about anything else that scurries along a forest floor, it’s prime hunting season up there — at least when it’s not covered in a thick layer of snow. The winters are impressively cold and icy.

Bye-Bye Gun-Free Zones

So there is good news lately for hunters, those that love shooting sports, and gun owners in general in Montana. Governor Greg Gianforte recently signed new legislation that essentially gets rid of a bunch of “gun-free” zones. That includes places like government buildings, restaurants, bars, and college campuses. These new laws go into effect immediately, except for the college campuses which begins this summer. 

Of course, private property and company owners can still make their own requirements for their establishments. For example, if someone is uncomfortable with their patrons exercising their concealed carry rights, they can prohibit it in their business. Knowing how pro-gun rights Montana is though across the board, it’s hard to imagine many people will want to ban guns in their establishments. 

A Pro-Gun Rights Governor 

Governor Greg Gianforte is very pro-gun rights because he feels that “gun control measures don’t prevent criminals from perpetuating violence or crime.” He goes on further to say that “gun control measures step on the rights of law-abiding citizens.” You can imagine that with more than half of Montana being lawful gun owners, they clearly agree with Gov. Gianforte’s opinion. He’s also the first Republican elected to his seat in over 16 years. Other Democrats before him vetoed certain laws that protected gun rights. 

The US Concealed Carry Association and many other gun rights groups applauded Montana’s forward thinking objectives about gun rights. 

The message is definitely clear going forward in Montana with the new Republican leadership, gun rights are here to stay. The victory of getting rid of unnecessary “gun-free” zones made a lot of gun owners very happy.

  1. Any body want gun rights! Except those who are the criminal! People who are afraid of gun can do two things. One keep their Mouth shut and opinion to themselves! I rather have a gun carrying person sitting next to me than an ANTIFA OR BLM MEMBER! KNOWING that I’m safe or I have a gun within my reach if I need it! Only a fool think the government will take care of them! If that TRUE then why is there more KILLING in these DEMONcrat city and state? To protect a LOVE ONE YOU NEED TO BE CARRYING!

  2. Why do leftist hate guns? You got your answer over the summer! But don’t forget there are left-wing who carry guns! During the RIOT these leftist were well prepared for police officer. Knowing the Government handicap them from using their weapons. So these ANTIFA had on helmet, steel toe boots, knife, anything that was AND CAN DO DAMAGE TO ANYONE ELSE. Guns are NOT the problem it DRUGS AND MEDIA!

  3. Thank you to all who made freedom and our rights a priority in Montana . The people of Montana are now able to provide thier own security and protection from violent criminals and predators.

  4. Remember also that criminals, by definition,, are lawbreakers and lawmakers know that very well. The real reason for “Gun Control” – actually Gun Restriction – is More power for Big Brother. Anti-gun lawmakers care nothing about private citizens and need to be voted out of office.

  5. Thank you Gov. Gianforte for your support of our 2nd. amendment, and congratulations to the people for voting in such a man. My state is unfortunately controlled by Pittsburg and Philthydelphia anti-gunners, and a Governor who will not support this portion of our Constitution {contrary to his oath of office}.

  6. Whether or not Montana is the best for firearm rights, I don’t know or care. I live in Arizona and many people carry openly, which I feel is foolish because it makes them a target. We also have a state government that is very lenient when it comes to firearms. A CCW is easy to get. Hopefully it will continue that way. As we all are aware the Biden administration is in the process of passing some terrible laws that will make us all virtually defenseless. Illegal aliens are now streaming across the border. Personally, I feel we face robbery, home invasion, murder, rape, vandalism and no telling what else. We will ALL need our firearms to protect our families, our homes and ourselves.
