Montana Governor Signs New Gun Law 
Executive Summary:  “The USA state of Montana has signed into power a revolutionary gun law.  I mean REVOLUTIONARY. The State of Montana has defied the federal government and
 their gun laws. This will prompt a showdown between the federal government and the State of Montana. The federal government fears citizens owning guns. They try to curtail what types of guns they can own. The gun control laws all have one common goal,
 confiscation of privately owned firearms.” 
Montana has gone beyond drawing a line in the sand. They have challenged the Federal Government. The fednow either takes them on and risks them saying the federal agents have no right to violate their state gun laws and arrest the federal agents that try to enforce the federal firearms acts. This will be a world-class event to watch.
 Montana could go to voting for secession from the union, which is really throwing the gauntlet in Obama’s face. If the federal government does nothing they lose face. Gotta love it.
Important Points:  If guns and ammunition are manufactured
 inside the State of Montana for sale and use inside that state
 then the federal firearms laws have no applicability since
 the federal government only has the power to control
 commerce across state lines. Montana has the law on their side. 
Since when did the USA start following their own laws especially the constitution of the USA,the very document that empowers the USA.
Silencers made in Montana and sol in Montana would be fully legal and not registered. As a note silencers were first used before the
 007 movies as a device to enable one to hunt without
 disturbing neighbors and scaring game. They were also useful
 as devices to control noise when practicing so as to not
 disturb the neighbors. 
Silencers work best with a bolt-action rifle.
 There is a long barrel and the chamber is closed tight so as
 to direct all the gases though the silencer at the tip of
 the barrel. Semi-auto pistols and revolvers do not really
 muffle the sound very well except on the silver screen. The
 revolvers bleed gas out with the sound all over the place.
 The semi-auto pistols bleed the gases out when the slide is back. 
Silencers are maybe nice for snipers picking off enemy soldiers even though they reduce velocity but not very practical for hit men shooting pistols in crowded places. Silencers were useful tools for gun enthusiasts and hunters. 
There would be no firearm registration, serial numbers, criminal records check, waiting periods or paperwork required. So in a short period of time there would be millions and millions of unregistered untraceable guns in
 Montana. Way to go Montana !
Discussion:  Let us see what Obama does. If he hits
 Montana hard they will probably vote to secede
 from the USA. The governor of Texas
 has already been refusing Federal money because he does not
 want to agree to the conditions that go with it and he has
 been saying secession is a right they have as sort of a
 threat. Things are no longer the same with the USA.
 Do not be deceived by Obama acting as if all is the same, it
 is not. 

Text of the New Law 
Section 1. Short title. [Sections 1 through 6] may be cited as the “Montana Firearms Freedom Act”.
Section 2. Legislative declarations of authority. The legislature declares that the authority for [sections 1 through 6] is the following:
(1) The 10th amendment to the United
 States constitution guarantees to the states and their people all powers not granted to the federal government elsewhere in the
itution and reserves to the state and people of Montana certain powers as they were understood the time that Montana was admitted to statehood in 1889. The guaranty of those powers is a matter of contract between the
> state and people of Montana and the United States as of the time that the compact with
 the United States was agreed upon and
 adopted by Montana and the United States in 1889.
(2) The ninth amendment to the United
 States constitution guarantees to the people rights not granted in the constitution and reserves to the people of Montana certain rights, as they wer understood at the time that Montana was admitted to statehood in 1889. The guaranty of those rights is a matter of contract between the state and people of Montana and the United States as of the time that the compact with
 the United States was agreed upon and adopted by Montana and the United States in 1889.
(3) The regulation of intrastate commerce is
 vested in the states under the 9th and 10th amendments to
 the United States constitution,
ly if not expressly preempted by federal law. Congress has not expressly preempted state regulation of
 intrastate commerce pertaining to the manufacture on an intrastate basis of firearms, firearms accessories, and ammunition.
(4) The second amendment to the United States
 constitution reserves to the people the right to keep and
 bear arms as that right was understood at the time that
tana was admitted to statehood in 1889, and the guaranty
 of the right is a matter of contract between the state and
 people of Montana and the United States as of the time that
 the compact with the United States was agreed upon and
 adopted by Montana and the United States in 1889.
(5) Article II, section 12, of the
 Montana constitution clearly secures to
 Montana citizens, and prohibits government
 interference with, the right of individual Montana citizens to keep and bear arms. This constitutional protection is unchanged from the 1889
 Montana constitution, which was approved by
 congress and the people of Montana, and the right exists, as it was
 understood at the time that the compact with the
 United States was agr eed upon and ad Section 3. Definitions1 through 6], the following definitions apply:
(1) “Borders of Montana” means the boundaries of
 Montana described in Article I, section 1, of the 1889 Montana constitution.
(2) “Firearms accessories” means
 items that are used in conjunction with or mounted upon a
 firearm but are not essential to the basic function of a
 firearm, including but not limited to telescopic or laser
 sights, magazines, flash or sound suppressors, folding or
 aftermarket stocks and grips, speedloaders, ammunition
 carriers, and lights for target illumination.
(3) “Generic and insignificant
 parts” includes but is not limited to springs, screws,
 nuts, and pins.
(4) “Manufactured” means that a
 firearm, a firearm accessory, or ammunition has been created
 from basic materials for functional usefulness, including
 but not limited to forging, casting, machining, or other
 processes for working materials.
Section 4. Prohibitions. A personal firearm,
 a firearm accessory, or ammunition that is manufactured
 commercially or privately in Montana and that remains within
 the borders of Montana is not subject to federal law or
 federal regulation, including registration, under the
 authority of congress to regulate interstate commerce. It is
 declared by the legislature that those items have not
 traveled in interstate commerce. This section applies to a
 firearm, a firearm accessory, or ammunition that is
 manufactured in Montana from basic materials and that can be
 manufactured without the inclusion of any significant parts
 imported from another state. Generic and insignificant parts
 that have other manufacturing or consumer product
 applications are not firearms, firearms accessories, or
 ammunition, and their importation into Montana and incorporation into a firearm, a firearm accessory, or ammunition manufactured in
 Montana does not subject the firearm, firearm
 accessory, or ammunition to federal regulation. It is
 declared by the legislature that basic materials, such as
 unmachined steel and unshaped wood, are not firearms,
 firearms accessories, or ammunition and are not subject to
 congressional authority to regulate firearms, firearms
accessories, and ammunition under interstate commerce as if
 they were actually firearms, firearms accessories, or
 ammunition. The authority of congress to regulate interstate
 commerce in basic materials does not include authority to
 regulate firearms, firearms accessories, and ammunition made
 in Montana from those materials. Firearms accessories that are imported into Montana from another state and that aresubject to federal regulation as being in interstate
commerce do not subject a firearm to federal regulation
nder interstate commerce because they are attached to or
used in conjunction with a firearm in Montana.

Section 5. Exceptions. [Section 4] does not
 apply to:
(1) A firearm that cannot be carried and used

 the words “Made in Montana” clearly stamped on a central
 metallic part, such as the receiver or frame.
Section 7. Codification instruction.
 [Sections 1 through 6] are intended to be codified as an
 integral part of Title 30, and the provisions of Title 30
 apply to [sections 1 through 6].
