MT HD 80 - 2018 - Ron Vandevender
 
 
THE GOVERNMENT - FEDERAL NOR STATE HAVE THE CONSTITUTIONAL AUTHORITY TO IMPOSE GUN CONTROL LAWS. THEY CAN NOT TELL USE WE CAN NOT OWN A WEAPON NOR CONTROL WHAT KIND OF WEAPON WE OWN.
 
MEDICAL CANNABIS AND GUNS
 Cannabis when used by a person with a legit Medical Use Card is just that Medicine. The use of this form of medication can not and should not be allowed as a factor in gun ownership. Users of medical cannabis have the same rights to self defence and hunting as those who use Pharma drugs or no meds at all. MEDICAL CANNABIS and Guns are two completely different unrelated issues and should be handled that way.
 
I Will Veto anything which takes the right of gun ownership away from us.
 
Many people focus on being able to hunt. Gun ownership is more than this. Yes they are for hunting, but also for protection reasons. Not just from an individual intruder or attacker, but also to protect ourselves from an abusive government.
The American Revolution was fought over this very point, and the Constitution was written and our government set up to protect us from this happening ever again.
People in our government on a state or federal level who want to remove this means of our protecting our rights want nothing more than to remove our rights and control our lives. They are our modern day version of the British tyranny we as a people suffered prior to the revolution.
 
Gun control laws in reality has very little to do with safety of our public. If you own a weapon, learn the proper handling of it. Then all are safe. Gun control laws ARE INTENDED TO TAKE OUR RIGHTS FROM US AND GIVE CONTROL OVER TO OTHERS, with no way of standing up to them.
 
Gun control laws over Montanans, be it by our own state, the federal government or the UN is totally unacceptable and will not be tolerated.
