Montana Legislation put forward to make all of the state like Alaska and Vermont
The bill, sponsored by Rep. Krayton Kerns, R-Laurel, is almost identical to a bill carried by then-Rep. Jack Wells, R-Bozeman, in the 2007 session.
If passed, the bill would, among other things:
= allow people to carry a concealed weapon without a permit;
= greatly strengthen self-defense protections in the state;
= allow people to display their gun to deter an attack;
= allow people to use a gun whenever at risk of physical harm;
= and, in shooting incidents in which the person who fired the gun claimed self defense, require the state to prove that it was not. . . . .
