Fwd: OK Gov. vetoes FFA
 From: Gary Marbut-MSSA <mssa@mtssa.org>

Dear MSSA Friends,

Oklahoma Governor Brad Henry has vetoed the Oklahoma Firearms Freedom Act.

http://axiomamuse.wordpress.com/2010/04/27/brogdon-slams-veto-of-oklahoma-firearms-freedom-act/

Things need to get stirred up in Oklahoma.  FFA sponsor Randy Brogdon
will attempt a veto override soon.

If you know anybody in Oklahoma, you'd better get them to spread the
word to hound their legislators with messages to support the OK FFA, SB 1685

 OK senator calls governor's reasons for vetoing Firearms Freedom Act 'absurd'

April 28, 8:58 AM  Gun Rights Examiner David Codrea

Oklahoma's governor has vetoed the state's Firearms Freedom Act, an essentially Tenth Amendment-based bill declaring that any firearms made and retained in-state are outside the regulatory authority of Congress.

What were his reasons?

From the Claremore Daily Progress:

    Gov. Brad Henry on Tuesday vetoed a bill to exempt Oklahoma-made guns and ammunition from federal regulations, saying the measure would make it easier for criminals to obtain weapons and endanger citizens and law enforcement. ...<snip>...

He is only covering his dairy aire {CYOA} with a PC version of the "Gov't will protect you so you don't need a gun"  LIE.
A sound bite that will play well in the socialist inundated larger cities and in the NWO MSM.
These folks [politicians] are not much more than actors playing a "part" remember.

Oklahomans  need to react, quickly and loudly.
However, with the level of political apathy being what it is throughout this country I doubt much of anything will get done.
I'd love to be surprised and have the OK legislature stand back up and say "Oh Hell No" and override his veto.
THAT would be spectacular but I am not holding my breath.

Fwd: Alaska enacts FFA - 8 states with enacted FFAs
 From: Gary Marbut-MSSA <mssa@mtssa.org>
 To: mssa@mtssa.org
 
Dear MSSA Friends,

Alaska became the 8th state to enact a Firearms Freedom Act, the 7th
enacted clone of Montana's original bill, when Alaska Governor Sean
Parnell signed HB 186, sponsored by Rep. Mike Kelly (R-Fairbanks) today.

In a prepared statement, Rep. Kelly said:¬  "The Alaska Firearms
Freedom Act frees Alaskans from overly-bureaucratic and restrictive
federal firearm regulation, and allows our state to assume the
responsibility for regulation. The Interstate Commerce Clause is used
by the federal government to regulate firearms that cross state
borders. The Alaska Firearms Freedom Act makes it clear that Alaskans
will be responsible for firearms that are made in Alaska, for use in
Alaska, and have 'Made in Alaska' stamped on them.

"Outdoorsmen, hunters and all Alaskans defending and feeding their
families, and protecting their property, should welcome this new law."

After the passage of the Montana Firearms Freedom Act in 2009, the
other states to enact MFFA clones have been Tennessee, Utah, Wyoming,
South Dakota, Idaho, Arizona, and now Alaska.¬  Other FFA clone bills
are introduced in 20 other states.

In the lawsuit by the Montana Shooting Sports Association and the
Second Amendment Foundation to validate the principles of the MFFA,
captioned MSSA v. Holder (U.S. Attorney General Eric Holder),
currently pending is a Motion to Dismiss filed by the U.S.¬  Oral
argument has been requested by Plaintiffs concerning the Motion to
Dismiss.¬  A date has been set for oral argument in federal court in
Missoula for mid-June, but that date will probably be rescheduled for
sometime in early July.

A number of amici (friends of the court) have joined MSSA v. Holder
to support Plaintiffs, including the Attorney General of Utah
(representing Utah and several other state AGs), the Goldwater
Institute of Arizona, the Paragon Foundation of New Mexico, Gun
Owners Foundation (Gun Owners of America), the Weapons Collectors
Society of Montana (and Western Tradition Partners), Montana
Legislators, and legislators sponsoring or cosponsoring FFA bills in
other states (represented by the Center for Constitutional
Jurisprudence).¬  The Attorney General of Montana has intervened to
support the MFFA.¬  Joining as an amicus in support of the U.S. is the
Brady Center (for all firearm restrictions).

All parties have written briefs concerning the Motion to
Dismiss.¬  Those briefs are available to review under the "Montana
Lawsuit Updates" link on the FFA Website at:
http://www.FirearmsFreedomAct.com

I will announce to this list when the date and time for oral argument
on the Motion to Dismiss is finally set.¬  Some receiving this info
may wish to show up to attend the oral argument session.¬  Stay tuned
for the announcement tomorrow (Friday) of an interesting additional
development in MSSA v. Holder.
