It's downright strange.  And more than slightly suspicious. 

One of our spokesmen will be on talk-radio in some distant part of the country, and the first caller will ask a familiar question: "Why has all of the ammunition flown off the shelves?" 

There are a variety of answers to this question, but many of them revolve around the same three words.  And those words are: Barack Hussein Obama. 

Under Obama, for some reason, agencies like FEMA and the IRS have suddenly found it necessary to make large ammunition purchases.  

In addition, Obama has banned the import of Russian made 7N6 5.45x39 ammunition using questionable legal justification, and this may be just the beginning.  

Private gun owners have made atypically large purchases because of a fear of what Obama and his disciples might do next.  And the paucity of ammunition on the shelves in many places has created a self-perpetuating cycle. 

Perhaps for this reason, Montana state Senator Matt Rosendale has introduced Senate Bill 122 -- a bill which would use Montana's considerable resources to encourage the manufacture and sale of ammunition in Montana: 

* Section 4 would provide tax exemptions for manufacturing ammunition components.  

* Section 5 would use the tax code to encourage loans to manufacturers of ammunition components, and sections 6 and 12 would exempt them from frivolous lawsuits. 

* Section 7 would provide economic development incentives.  

* Sections 8, 9, 10, and 11 would (1) create personal and other property exemptions, (2) exempt manufacturers from statewide property taxes levied for educational purposes, and (3) provide income tax relief for manufacturers. 

Senate Bill 122 has been reassigned to the not-so-friendly Senate Taxation Committee.  And while the public hearing on SB 122 was on Wednesday, the Committee has not taken executive action on the bill and probably won't for a few days yet. 

So there is still time to take action!

If you wish to get up-to-date information on these other bills -- and find out when they will come up for a hearing -- you can email the Montana Shooting Sports Association at This email address is being protected from spambots.

ACTION: Contact your state senator.  Ask him to support Senate Bill 122.

----- Pre-written letter to MT state senators -----

Dear Senator:

Please support Senate Bill 122!

Over the last couple of years, ammunition has been increasingly difficult to obtain in many parts of the country.   There are a variety of reasons:  Agencies like FEMA and the IRS have suddenly found it necessary to make large ammunition purchases.  

In addition, Obama has banned the import of Russian made 7N6 5.45x39 ammunition using questionable legal justification, and this may be just the beginning.  

Private gun owners have made atypically large purchases because of a fear of what Obama and his disciples might do next. And the paucity of ammunition on the shelves in many places has created a self-perpetuating cycle. 

Perhaps for this reason, Montana state Senator Matt Rosendale has introduced Senate Bill 122 -- a bill which would use Montana's considerable resources to encourage the manufacture and sale of ammunition in Montana: 

* Section 4 would provide tax exemptions for manufacturing ammunition components.  

* Section 5 would use the tax code to encourage loans to manufacturers of ammunition components, and sections 6 and 12 would exempt them from frivolous lawsuits. 

* Section 7 would provide economic development incentives.  

* Sections 8, 9, 10, and 11 would (1) create personal and other property exemptions, (2) exempt manufacturers from statewide property taxes levied for educational purposes, and (3) provide income tax relief for manufacturers. 

I am asking you, therefore, to please support Senate Bill 122.

Sincerely,
