Mandated or “Universal” Government Background Checks for private gun sales and trade, ARE NOT and will never be, to the best of our ability, REQUIRED BY LAW in the State of Montana!
Unless of course you live in Missoula now. Missoula is trying to require background checks before firearms transactions within city limits. Anyone with any common sense knows that even if they do, law abiding citizens will simply drive outside of the city limits to transact. As opposed to the bad guys, who don’t care either way.
Like a majority of attempts at gun control, just ridiculous.
Does that mean we don’t think people should have the choice to do a background check on someone for our own firearm transactions? Should we have to pay for it? Well you don’t currently have to pay for an in state ONLY background check in Montana!
Montanans already have a resource available to perform in state background checks using the Montana Correctional Offender CONWEB.
