Montana: A safe storage bill is before committee Tuesday, March 12.

The NRA sent out a late notice to their members to fight this bill. Why are they fighting a gun safety bill? Because they always fight gun safety bills. It’s no matter that passage would save lives. They don’t even follow their own NRA safety manuals, which say gun safety requires guns to be locked up. But, as they always fight any gun safety regulations, they are fighting this one. Concerned citizens should advocate for this Montana bill.

👍House Bill 480 and the similar HB 477 would require guns to be stored properly in a safety box.
