Montana only...Help needed - Youth .22 rifle buyers?

Help needed - Youth .22 rifle buyers?

 From: Gary Marbut-MSSA <mssa@mtssa.org>
 To: mssa@mtssa.org
 
Dear MSSA Friends,

In our lawsuit to validate the Montana Firearms Freedom Act, MSSA v.
Holder, I am the only individual plaintiff.

The U.S. has filed a Motion to Dismiss, in part claiming I lack
standing because I don't have any firm plans to make and sell an MFFA item.

But I do.

I've researched the possibility of manufacturing, under the terms of
the MFFA, a youth model, single shot, bolt action .22 rifle.  This
rifle will be the size of a Chipmunk youth rifle (with a couple of
improvements), and will be mechanically similar to a Winchester Model
67A (with a couple of improvements), which has not been manufactured
for almost 50 years (original John Browning patent in 1899).  I'm
calling this not-yet-available model the "Montana Buckaroo."

I may only make these IF MSSA is successful in its MFFA lawsuit, but
it would be VERY helpful in addressing the "standing" question if I
have evidence that there are a lot of folks in Montana who would buy
these rifles, IF we win the lawsuit and IF I can actually produce them.

So, how many of you are willing to declare that you would purchase
one (or more) of these (historical) Made-in-Montana rifles at a price
of $100 each, IF we win the lawsuit, and IF I can actually get them
into production.

If you are willing to declare that you would buy such a rifle(s),
remember that they may never leave Montana and that your expressed
desire to purchase will be entered into the court records in MSSA v. Holder.

So, if you are willing, please reply to this email and tell me that
you would like to buy one or more Montana Buckaroos, how many you'd
like to buy, and please also copy our lead attorney ("Quentin
Rhoades" <qmr@montanalawyer.com>) on your email for his records.

Thanks,

Fwd:  Buckaroo - Amazing!!  Thanks!!

Dear MSSA Friends,

I travelled to Ronan this evening to speak to an interested and
attentive group of patriots there.

When I got home, there were 65 emails in my Inbox (still coming in)
from people willing to buy Buckaroos, most for multiple rifles.  One
nice lady who lives in Texas even said she'd buy two Buckaroos and
donate them to a youth shooting program in Montana!

Because there's just not time to respond to each of you individually,
THANKS A LOT!!

To be honest, it's a long shot whether or not ANY of these rifles
will EVER be manufactured.  Some of you even offered to send
money.  Not yet.  First, we must win the lawsuit, which means going
all the way to the U.S. Supreme Court.  Your enthusiastic support
will help with that.

So, if your kids or grandkids need a youth rifle now, don't wait for
the Buckaroo.  Stay tuned.

Please pass this on to the list of folks to whom you redistributed my
original Buckaroo email.

Thanks again!!

Tell the feds that after the wild success of the Buckaroo, that I would like to buy their first 50 cal sniper rifle.

one step at a time..............a single shot .22 designed for "kids" is a good first step..............particularly if an offer were made to  supply the various youth organizations/school groups in the state at a reduced cost..............
Move it from Montana taking the offensive against the federal government to, the federal government oppressing children in the name of holding it's power..................

Even some cowboy and indian outlaws in the 1800's eventually stopped sleeping under buffalo skins, and came to town to entertain paying customers. For some I imagine the bruising of their ego never healed.

We all have some scar tissue that never lets us completely forget the intent of the adventure.

Only a .50?  Montana law allows anything under 1.50" bore.  :mellow:
