Guns Rights Examiner David Codrea in his Aug. 4 column on examiner.com that Firearms Freedom Act (FFA) efforts in Tennessee and Montana has promped the ATF to, essentially, say, “We”l follow our own rules.”
“Because the Acts (passed in Tennessee and Montana) conflict with federal firearms laws and regulations, federal law supersedes the Acta, and all provisions of the Gun Control Act and the National Firearms Act, and their corresponding regulations, continue to apply.”
The Montana Shooting Sports Association is planning to challenge this in court. MSSA President Gary Marbut told Codrea: “In order to foster the Firearms Freedom Act movement, I have obtained the domain of: http://www.firearmsfreedomact.com/ I intend this to be an information and networking point for this cascading movement.”
The site includes background information, status on progress in the states, model legislation, links to news reports about the movement, and more.
One note: How does the 14th Amendment apply, say, in Chicago, but not in Montana and Tennessee. And why doesn’t the Second Amendment apply everywhere?
