Missoula, MT –-( Briefs are getting filed in MSSA v. Holder before the Ninth Circuit Court of Appeals.

This is MSSA’s lawsuit to validate the principles of the Montana Firearms Freedom Act.

This a challenge to federal power asserted under the Commerce Clause of the U.S. Constitution to regulate every human (and non-human) activity under the guise of regulating “commerce … among the several states.”

As more briefs become available, we will continue to post them at the link below.

Appellants (those of us appealing the adverse decision of the federal District Court) include MSSA, the Second Amendment Foundation, and myself as the sole individual plaintiff.

Available so far are Appellants’ Principal Brief, the brief of the Center for Constitutional Jurisprudence and the brief of the Pacific Legal Foundation.

Expected by the deadline next Monday are the briefs of the Goldwater Institute (now including CATO), the State of Utah (also representing several other states), the State of Montana (now backed down from Intervenor status to amicus status), Montana Legislators, Gun Owner’s Foundation (Gun Owners of America [also with U.S. Justice’s Gary Kreep] ), the Weapons Collectors Society of Montana and perhaps even some of the anti-gun crowd such as the Brady Center For The Idiotic Idea That Guns Must Somehow Cause Violence.

Stay tuned. We’ll post more briefs to the Website as they become available.

This too will be dismissed by an activist, disloyal judge, mark my words!!!The executive, judicial & legislative branches of our government can no longer be trusted and have been proven to be rival and destructive to the U.S. Constitution and The American Way of Life! They will be abolished and replaced with honest, loyal, Constitutionally minded, Natural Born U.S. Citizens!!!

That's why True, Loyal Americans are planning the 2nd American Revolution! We're 14 million strong and growing! You'd better get prepared!!! The time for talk is over! The time for action is now!!!
