High court declines to hear Montana gun case
The U.S. Supreme Court has rejected a request to review a ruling against a Montana law that attempts to exempt guns made and kept in the state from federal regulation, but the so-called Firearms Freedom Act isn’t dead yet.
The high court on Monday turned down a petition filed by Montana Shooting Sports Association President Gary Marbut to overturn a federal appeals court’s ruling against the law. The 9th U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals previously ruled that the Supreme Court already has decided the issue in favor of federal regulation.
But a separate petition request filed by Attorney General Tim Fox’s office over the 2009 state law is still pending before the Supreme Court, and Marbut said he isn’t ready to cede defeat yet.
