On April 15, Montana Governor Brian Schweitzer dipped his pen in gun oil and signed the "Exempt Montana-made firearms and ammunition from commerce clause" bill into law.

The legislation, better known as the Montana Firearms Freedom Act (MFFA), goes into effect on October 1.

What the new law says, once the text has been disinfected of legalspeak, is that all firearms, firearm related accessories and ammo that are produced, sold and retained within the boundaries of Big Sky Country are not subject to the Constitution's interstate commerce clause.
