One opinion of what can we learn from the Markus Kaarma trial

Teach your children to respect the property of others. We all know kids don't always follow the rules and just like drunk driving the consequences can be deadly. Some things should be stressed more than others, trespassing in Montana needs to be one of them because 90% of homes have guns. Don't plan to kill an intruder, plan to defend you and your family from imminent danger.  Call the authorities. Unless you are directly being threatened and Read more & comment...

When all of the bad guys hand in their guns, I’ll register mine

When all of the bad guys hand in their guns, I'll willingly support legislation for universal background checks & submit to said checks for every gun purchase and sale I make. I would do this knowing that in such a fairy tale world that this might help make the world a safer place, as long as everybody follows the rules, oh wait... Any and all gun control laws only apply to law abiding citizens. The idea that those in favor of more gun control Read more & comment...

Green Decoys, Public Land Transfer, Hunting, Shooting & Recreational Access

We all get frustrated trying to figure out where and what we can shoot and how to navigate eligible hunting and shooting areas. Once we find them, they are cherished and top secret. The way our system currently is, nearly one swipe of the pen by a federal executive could change restrictions in a few seconds under federal ownership. If the state legislature that we voted for and influence had more control over more lands, would we not have more Read more & comment...

Are Montana Democrats guilty by Democrat party association?

As a gun owner, it must be very difficult to be a member of the democrat party today. Especially in states like Montana. Once upon a time Montana democratic candidates and politicians could be trusted more to honestly support the 2nd Amendment. This was once due more so to our heritage and the sheer number of constituents who are gun owners in Montana. Those times are fading. Saying that you support The Second Amendment is no longer enough Read more & comment...

Montana Active School Shooter Scenario, Observations and Preparation

The single most feared situation for most people with kids is an active shooter scenario in their children’s school. The fact that you can still simply walk right into many Montana schools without detection is very disturbing for most parents. Just like the laws that bad guys don’t comply with, a rule that you are required to check in at the office does nothing to deter a bad guy from mowing down our kids and school staff. Closing down all doors except one entrance does at least channel them into a certain area if the procedures are followed, but then what. Please put down your gun and check in at the office. That should work, right?

“But we’re in Montana, that type of thing doesn’t happen here.” I’m sure if you had the opportunity to ask any of the victims who have suffered these evil encounters the days and weeks before these events, they might say the same thing. More to come…

Does your candidate get it in regard to universal background checks?

After contacting many of our potential representatives to get their position on universal background checks for private firearms transactions, Corey Stapleton was one of the only ones brave enough to respond. He made the following statement on his facebook page. "Liberals deny History on guns. How does a government disarm its citizens? By tracking and logging which citizens have firearms.. and then 'something' happens--a wicked leader gets elected, Read more & comment...

What is your position on universal background checks for private gun sales?

This direct question has been presented to a number of our Montana representatives with little response so far. All of them say they wholeheartedly support the 2nd Amendment. Unfortunately with the methods employed by powers that be, their definition of the 2nd Amendment changes rapidly depending on political agendas, current events, sponsors and election timing. Can there be compromise around our current firearms freedoms? This single political Read more & comment...
