Dear MSSA Friends,

Montana’s once-every-two-years legislative session will begin on Monday, January 5th.  When the session convenes, things will happen quickly because the session only lasts 90 working days.  You need to be prepared to keep up and weigh in.  I will be coaching you throughout with emails.

However, there are things you can do in advance to get yourself and your friends ready to help MSSA get pro-gun bills passed.  MSSA CAN’T DO THE JOB WITHOUT YOUR ONGOING HELP.

1.  Become knowledgeable about the issues MSSA will have before the 2015 Legislature.  Most of these issues are described in MSSA’s 2014 Legislative Candidate Questionnaire, available HERE .  Check this out and study up on the issues.  These DO NOT have bill numbers yet, because they can’t be introduced and get bill numbers until the session starts.  As soon as bill numbers are assigned, I’ll get those numbers to you.

2.  Learn about the legislative process, how it works, and how you and your friends can be involved in support of MSSA bills.  I have provided informative and coaching information for you HERE.  BE SURE TO study this information.  It is important!

3.  Don’t forget the Legislative Reception hosted by MSSA and the NRA at the Colonial Inn in Helena on the afternoon and early evening of Wednesday, January 7th.  This will be a great opportunity to talk one-on-one with legislators about MSSA legislative issues in an informal setting.  Plan to attend if you can.

4.  Please recirculate this to all of your friends who are concerned about the RKBA in Montana.

Best wishes,
