Firearms manufactured and used in Montana would become exempt from federal regulation under a bill being considered in the Montana House.
The State House voted in favor of House Bill 246 in second reading on Saturday, and the bill could have the effect of releasing Montana gun owners from federal registration requirements.
The measure applies to firearms, firearm accessories and ammunition that are made and sold in the state.
The bill’s sponsor says his proposal is more about states’ rights than about gun rights.
