Missoula, MT --(Ammoland.com)- The three judges from the panel hearing oral arguments in MSSA v. Holder seemed interested in and attentive to the arguments made by MSSA’s counsel and counsel for amicus Goldwater Institute.

The judges seemed bored with the argument by the DoJ attorney that I lack standing as the only individual plaintiff because I haven’t actually made and sold the planned “Montana Buckaroo” (single-shot, bolt-action, .22 youth rifle), and been arrested and convicted of that under federal law.

The DoJ attorney claimed that because I haven’t actually made one yet, that proves I don’t know how and can’t.  As I say, the judges seemed unimpressed with the DoJ attorney – they asked him few questions and basically let him run his clock out

No idea what they’ll do with the case.  It’ll likely be months before we get their written decision.

The Maryland State Rifle and Pistol Association (MSRPA) is the flagship Gun Rights organization in and for the State of Maryland. The Association offers both individual and club memberships. Support of the shooting disciplines and legislative activities is primarily through a systems of committees. All participants are volunteers.
In the face of a near tidal wave of citizen disarmament occurring in Maryland, the MSRPA has played a critical part in drawing the line and standing firm for Gun Rights. Without this resistance, things would have been much worse and been so much sooner. Now the objective is to continue to develop new activists with numerous individual skills who will help us bring Maryland into line with the rest of the states which have made strong gains in protecting the Right to Keep and Bear Arms.

      The more I read about Montana and firearms, the more I begin to appreciate the citizenry of Montana; real patriots! You guys are alsome!

      I am looking at starting an ammunition manufacturing company in Montana next year. I currently live in California and have determined that I cannot do it here with the current political enviroment.

      I have a friend that is from Turner, Montana and he will most likely be the plant manager. I myself am thinking about migrating to Monyana.

      Thanks for standing up for real Americans!
