Missoula, MT –-( I just got a call from the Associated Press wanting comment on the Governor’s veto of HB 271, to allow concealed carry without a permit inside city limits.

According to the AP, the Governor vetoed 15 bills today, including HB 271.

I told the AP something like, “It’s too bad the Governor sees people who are inside city limits as second-class citizens, and not as trustworthy as their country cousins who live outside cities. This does call into question the Governor’s longtime claim that he’s pro-gun.”

I expect the Governor’s veto message to say that HB 271 is dangerous to our great defenders, police, who can never be there when you or I are attacked.
