Arguments scheduled in 9th Circuit on Montana's 'freedom act'


Just as the rhetoric in Washington on guns has hit a zenith with Joe Biden promising executive orders to try to prevent the hardware from doing damage a court order has revived a stunning plan adopted by several states that tells Washington, regarding many guns, to just go away.  ...<snip>...

Dear MSSA Friends,

MSSA v. Holder, our lawsuit to validate the principles of the Montana Firearms Freedom Act, will have oral argument before the Ninth Circuit Court of Appeals in Portland, Oregon, this coming Monday, March 4th.

With many thanks to generous MSSA donors, my costs for travel lodgings and other are covered by MSSA and I will be there.  I'll get you a report when I get back.

Audio and/or video of the oral argument should appear on the Ninth Circuit's Website by Noon on Tuesday, at:

Most of you will remember that the MFFA uses firearms as the vehicle to challenge federal power to regulate or prohibit basically everything under the enumerated power given to Congress by the states in the Constitution to "regulate commerce ... among the several states ...", the Commerce Clause.  MSSA advances some fresh and powerful arguments that have never been made in Commerce Clause litigation before (such as the Ninth and Tenth Amendments actually amended the Commerce Clause and its possible implementation).

I wrote and submitted an article today to The Daily Caller in Washington, D.C. telling more of the story about MSSA's Commerce Clause challenge.  If that article is published before I leave, I'll shoot you the link.

Best wishes,

Gary Marbut, President
