Dear MSSA Friends,
The first full week of March, the 6th through the 12th, is set up by law in Montana as the official celebration of our Right to Keep and Bear Arms. This is courtesy of a law MSSA got passed in 1991.
You are encouraged to get with others and plan some sort of local celebration for this week.
Here is what the law says:
“1-1-224. Observance of right to keep and bear arms. The week beginning the first Monday in March is an official week of observance to commemorate Montana’s valued heritage of the right of each person to keep and bear arms in the defense of his home, person, or property or in aid of civil power. During this week, all Montanans are urged to reflect on their right to keep and bear arms and to celebrate this right in lawful ways.”
