Dear MSSA Friends,

MSSA’s flagship bill, SB 122, to encourage the manufacture of ammunition components in Montana, will be up for Second Reading before the full House tomorrow, Tuesday, April 13th.  This bill could have more long term consequence for the Right to Keep and Bear Arms in Montana than any other bill this session.  Please contact your Representative (not Senator) and ask him or her to support SB 122.  contact any other Representatives you wish.

While this is an important RKBA bill, it is also a jobs bill.  It has the potential to create a lot of good-paying jobs in Montana.  Plus, it won’t cost the state one dime of existing tax revenue because there are no such businesses in Montana now.

Also, MSSA’s suppressor bill, the "good" bill, SB 295, has gone to the governor for his signature.  Governor Bullock has already said he wants suppressors legal for hunting.  This is the best bill to accomplish that because it is much cleaner methodology than HB 250 for which he offered amendments.  Please contact the Governor and ask him to sign SB 295.
