Montana Lawmaker Moves to Protect Second Amendment

by Kurt Nimmo,  |  published on January 5, 2013

A Montana lawmaker is proposing amendments to the Constitution to nullify the effects of laws in the works to outlaw firearms.

Rep. Jerry O’Neil, a Republican from Columbia Falls, has vowed to work with the Montana state legislature to adopt amendments protecting the Second Amendment and national sovereignty.

O’Neill is concerned about gun laws – including possible confiscation of all semi-automatic firearms in the country – currently being drafted by California Democrat Sen. Dianne Feinstein. If Feinstein’s draconian assault on the Second Amendment is successful, O’Neill warns, gun manufacturers in the Flathead Valley region of Montana will be at risk.

The Congressman believes shutting down thriving firearms manufacturers will violate the Commerce Clause.

He wants to replace the word “among” with “between” in Article 1, Section 8 of the Constitution. If adopted, the passage will read: “Congress shall have power … to regulate commerce with foreign nations, and interstate commerce between the several states, and with the Indian tribes.”

“I believe that is the way our founding fathers intended it to be,” he said. “This would put some sideboards on the interstate commerce clause so there is a limit to it.”
