Montana – The Montana Attorney General, Tim Fox, has released the requested opinion about the enforce-ability of the Missoula ordinance requiring government background checks for private transfers of firearms.

You can access the AG opinion below or at the link found here:

As expected, this AG Opinion declares the Missoula ordinance to be in conflict with controlling state law, and to be unenforceable.

From the ruling: ” A city or other local government entity with self-governing powers is prohibited by Montana state law from enforcing a local regulation or ordinance requiring background checks on firearm sales or transfers within its borders. “

Addressing the Missoula ordinance this way, and putting the wheels in motion for this AG Opinion, was something MSSA initiated over a year ago. We’re glad this planting finally bore the expected fruit. This is yet another example of what MSSA does for Montana gun owners.
