Yesterday I reported that Montana’s “Montana-Made Gun Bill” has gone viral and that states are jumping on the opportunity to follow suit. Montana’s bill states that any gun, gun accessory or ammunition manufactured in Montana and stays in Montana cannot be regulated by the Federal Government. Not only is this a bold attempt at protecting the Second Amendment rights of Montanans it all sends a message to the U.S. Government that Montana is a sovereign state and will not be controlled by the feds.

Yesterday, South Carolina introduced a similar bill and it now appears that Minnesota has done the same – HF2376.

Here’s a list of other states with similar bills.

Montana HB 246
