Or should that be hello Republic of Montana? In response to the 2nd amendment case before the Supreme Court, if it does not come down on the side of an "individuals right to keep and bear arms", Montana, may take things into its own hands.
In a joint resolution, the Montana politicians argue that when Washington approved the state constitution, including a clause granting “any person” the right to bear arms, upon the Treasure State’s entry into the Union in 1889, the federal government recognized that clause as consistent with the Second Amendment. If the Court comes down on the side of a collective right, they argue, it would breach the compact for statehood between Montana and the federal government.
Bringing the United States down to 49... or 56 in Obama's world.
