Montana Gov. Greg Gianforte (R) signed legislation Friday to protect the Second Amendment from new federal laws and regulations.
The legislation was put forward by State Rep. Jedediah Hinkle (R).
The Associated Press reports that the new law “prohibits state and local law enforcement in Montana from enforcing federal bans on firearms, ammunition, and magazines.”
Today, I proudly signed Rep. Hinkle's law prohibiting federal overreach into our Second Amendment-protected rights, including any federal ban on firearms.
