HELENA, Mont. -- A federal judge in Missoula is dismissing a lawsuit launched by gun rights advocates and states seeking freedom from federal gun laws.
The decision from U.S. District Judge Donald Molloy was expected since his magistrate a month ago recommended tossing out the lawsuit.

So, he shot it down, eh?
Yeah I guess he was primed for this but I wonder what lead him to his decision and made him pull the trigger. /s
The States should just ignore the Fed, let 'em send in Holder to have a chat with the local Sheriff's where they can tell him to go pound sand.
A setback in Montana. Hope the appeal gets an honest judge.
Why is this a zot?
neverdem posted the same article a couple of minutes before
no problemo. LOL
I actually don’t care about the double post.
I just wanted to be the 1st to call IBTZ.
Yes, that does have a certain amount of satisfaction, doesn't it?
If you think about it, it really isn’t a big deal. They don’t have the authority over us...unless we give it to them. I choose not to.
This is the same sob who put the Canadian gray wolf back on the “endangered species list” in Montana and Idaho because Wyoming did not have a wolf control plan in place. Hafta treat these critters the same across the whole “region,” donchaknow. He has no idea how endangered the wolf is.
You mean for HIM, right? Obviously a judgment by a federal court in favor of the federal government is a conflict of interest and moot.
In his county, the Sheriff outranks Hold-me anyway, so it doesn't even really achieve the level of defiance. ATF's letters do, though.
Gun and federalism pings!
As near as I can tell this decision was not "unexpected" by the Montana folks given the district court(Dim judge appointed by bent willie). The all powerful interstate commerce clause misapplied -- again. An update for the 10th Amendment Division...
Please ~ping~ me to articles relating to the 10th Amendment/States Rights so I can engage the pinger.
If you want on or off the ping list just say the word.

First sentence is the foundation of the Constitution.
Second sentence is freedom.
Thank you for summing up in two sentences what this country stands for.
Right on. See the tagline.
Think about it.
This is a suit.
The plaintiffs are several States.
The defendant is the United States.
The judge WORKS FOR THE DEFENDANT!!!!
Can we reasonably expect any other outcome?
Judge Dismisses States’ Gun Suit
This one was a squib. You’ll have to tap the bullet out
of the barrel before you can fire again.
Looks like it. And darn if I care for pushing squibs out. Makes me nervous.
If congress don’t have jurisdiction the Federal courts can’t be assumed to have any kind of jurisdiction.
They sure as hell don’t have the power to grant themselves or congress jurisdictions. Not only is it a conflict of interest its a usurpation of the Constitution.
I had one experience with .44mag ammo purchased at a gun show. One shot in my S&W 629 with 4 inch barrel and the other 5 rounds unseated the bullets from the brass. They were poking out the front edge of the cylinder. I pressed them back flush and unloaded the unexpended rounds. The whole remaining container was run through my Lee Precision Factory Roll Crimp die. The vendor used a taper crimp as he was firing them from a Desert Eagle. You can't do that with hot revolver rounds.
Wow. I have had em and they just plain make me nervous.
Still, the damn thing has to be cleared. So after my first squib, I made a squib tool that keeps my hand out of the line of fire and and another that holds the breach open to mitigate against misfire in the open.
If the round fires and goes through the barrel it will fling the tool out of my hand and hopefully at most I will suffer a nasty cut.
If it goes off in an open breach well... it’s going to what it’s going to do and then it’s “Oh well”.
Hope we have five or six allies on the US Supreme Court when the appeal gets there.
Voting for other than Republicans has long term consequences.
Isn't that the point of this law: ignoring federal overreaching. The fact that a federal judge approved of this overreaching should be meaningless to Montana. Just do what California did regarding medical marijuana: disregard federal law and any court (even Supreme Court) ruling that goes against you.
Having allowed California to nullify the Controlled Substances Act and Gonzalez v. Raich, the Liberal Messiah would be hard pressed to treat Montana differently in this case. Of course, I put nothing passed him.
