From Montana’s KULR Channel 8 News:

_Montana-made guns could spark a court showdown over states’ rights if the governor signs a bill to release some firearms from federal regulation.

_House Bill 246, sponsored by Republican Rep. Joel Boniek of Livingston, seeks to exempt guns made and kept in Montana from federal background checks and dealership licensing. . . .

The measure passed the Legislature easily, and now awaits action by Democratic Gov. Brian Schweitzer. The governor has not taken a position on the bill, which its supporters hope will trigger a legal battle to affirm states’ rights. They say it is less about firearms, than testing the Constitutional basis for federal control over the states.
