MT Shooting Sports Association’s Suit Against U.S. Government Dismissed
Montana’s resident gun nut and lunatic lobbyist had his lawsuit against the U.S. government dismissed this afternoon for what was basically a lack of standing.
See, Marbut and his Montana Shooting Sports Association tried to sue the federal government for relief from something that hadn’t happened. See, the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco and Firearms had yet to stop Montana from NOT regulating something that it doesn’t regulate already.
Get this circular logic?
See, Marbut successfully (so note that, people – HB246 passed a majority in the evenly split state house (84-14) and a majority in the Republican-controlled senate…and Governor Schweitzer signed the thing into law) lobbied a bill through the last legislative session that exempted Montana built guns from federal regulation.
So Montana legislators passed a bill and our Governor Schweitzer signed that bill into law that said that guns made in the state of Montana were not subject to federal law.
Make sense? A state passing a law saying it isn’t subject to federal law?
Pretty soon, one of these Einstein’s are going to want to secede from the Union….history be damned.
How we’re going to ensure that these guns stay in Montana? Don’t think that’s of consequence to Montana and its taxpayers? It will be once some gun manufacturer sells a gun to someone out of state or sells it to someone who takes the thing out of Montana. So the taxpayers will be paying Bullock and his staff to defend the thing once the feds try and enforce their regulations.
You wonder why all the escaped convicts run here? Wonder why we have all those crazy doomsday groups here? Nazis?
And you can damned well bet Marbut considers himself a conservative. Spending taxpayer money to defend his political agenda follies.
Consider, too, the irony of him having to file in federal court. Kinda makes me laugh – him filing a suit without standing in federal court, asking the feds to basically give him legitimacy.
Gotta love that.

Wonder if ol’ Glenn Beck and Fox News will cover this dismissal?
