SCOTUS Denies MSSA v. Holder Appeal

Dear MSSA Friends,

If you’ve been attending to the commercial Montana news media, you will have seen that the US Supreme Court has officially denied MSSA’s appeal of MSSA v. Holder from the Ninth Circuit.

However, it’s not over yet. The State of Montana also and separately asked for the SC to take the case. That is, Montana filed its own petition for certiorari. The SC has not acted on that petition yet – probably won’t until early February.

That news is not very encouraging since the SC has already declined to hear the case once. But, a request from a state has a better chance than a request from private parties. So, we’ll see. But I’m not holding my breath.

I’ll get out more info when we know more.

Best wishes,

3D Printing To Make Your Own Magazine

And I’m not talking about the reading kind of magazine.

A report from Fox News is saying that 3d printing provides the capability to manufacture your own plastic gun magazine….any size you want. Some also believe this is a way to circumvent any gun control laws limiting magazine capacities.

Is this another possible challenge similar to Montana Shooting Sports Association’s “Firearms Freedom Act?”
