Republicans propose constitutional amendment on Montana's right to bear arms – Daily Montanan
Republicans propose constitutional amendment on Montana's right to bear arms and striking a line in the document about concealed carry.
Currently, Article II Section 12 of the state constitution protects the right to bear arms, but not under all circumstances:
“The right of any person to keep or bear arms in defense of his own home, person, and property, or in aid of the civil power when thereto legally summoned, shall not be called in question, but nothing herein contained shall be held to permit the carrying of concealed weapons.”
House Bill 551 would strike out the last portion of the provision, the exception against concealed weapons.
