Montana Restaurant Carry Bill Goes To Governor

posted on April 7, 2017

A bill that would allow Montanans to carry concealed firearms for self-defense in restaurants has been sent to Gov. Steve Bullock. The NRA-backed measure, officially known as HB 494, would apply to establishments where alcohol is not the primary item of sale. 

Sen. Keith Regier, who spoke before the Senate regarding the bill, said, “I’ve received several messages about this bill saying that alcohol and guns don’t mix. Apparently, with Montana’s open-carry laws, alcohol and guns have been mixing for a long time,” he said, referring to the fact that Montanans can already carry openly in such establishments. “For me, this bill is about discretion.”

Use Your Power!

While HB 494 would simply allow those who would rather purse carry—or who find open carry incompatible with the warm-weather attire required by Montana’s long winters—the option of carrying concealed, its passage is far from assured. Because Bullock is being pressured by groups like Everytown and Moms Demand Action to veto this measure, it’s very important that you contact him today and politely urge him to protect your right of self-defense.
