Dear MSSA Friends,

MSSA’s campus carry bill, SB 143, squeaked by in the Senate today on Second Reading with a 25-24 vote.  It could die tomorrow on Third Reading unless we act energetically.

In today’s vote, five Republicans joined with Democrats to oppose SB 143, and one Republican was excused.  We want all six of these Republicans to support SB 143 on Third Reading tomorrow.  These six Republicans need messages from you and all of your friends, asking them to please support SB 143 on Third Reading.  These six Republicans are:

Duane Ankney
Taylor Brown
Edward Buttrey
Pat Connell
Llew Jones
Bruce Tutvedt

BE POLITE!  Be firm.  It will be enough in your message to just say, "Please support SB 143 on Third Reading."

You can leave a message by calling the Legislative Message Center at 444-4800 during working hours, or via the Online Message Form on the Legislature’s Website at:

Again, please ACT NOW, and get all your friends to weigh in too.

Thanks loads!

Gary Marbut, President
Montana Shooting Sports Association
