Washington, DC –-( Several of you have inquired about a transcript for the hearing in our lawsuit to validate the principles of the Montana Firearms Freedom Act.

The transcript for the 7/15 hearing on the U.S. Motion to Dismiss in MSSA v. Holder is now posted to the Website or embedded below.

If you wish to navigate to it, go to the FFA Website, click on Montana Lawsuit Updates on the right column, and from there scroll down to the section on the Motion to Dismiss.

“Originally introduced and passed in Montana, the FFA declares that any firearms made and retained in-state are beyond the authority of Congress under its constitutional power to regulate commerce among the states.

Following initial Montana enactment, clones of the Firearms Freedom Act have subsequently been enacted in Tennessee, Utah, Wyoming and South Dakota, and other clones have been introduced in the legislatures of twenty-some other states.

The FFA is primarily a Tenth Amendment challenge to the powers of Congress under the “commerce clause,” with firearms as the object – it is a state’s rights exercise.”

The article titled "No Force to Excessive in Defense Of Your Life" has a typo, and requires the reader to take a second look at it to determine the meaning. It should be titled: "No Force Too Excessive in Defense Of Your Life" (Too, not to)

Likewise, the article "Monatana Teen Hunter Demari DeReu’s School Board Hearing" has another obvious typo.
