    Smile CNN and the Montana Firearms Freedom Act

    August 11, 2009

    Dear MSSA Friends,

    CNN crews were in Montana last Wednesday through Friday collecting footage about the Montana Firearms Freedom Act for the Lou Dobbs show. They interviewed me and Governor Schweitzer, and some others. Nobody knows what collected footage they'll actually use.

    I am told this will likely air sometime in the next ten days or so.

    Best wishes,

    yeah well some might be used for Dobbs

    I am betting that anyone at CNN Dobbs is the most fair, but hope that the other CNN folks don't use it as cut spliced and edited B roll for antigun crapola.
    I cringed when you said CNN.

    Catherine, the first time I read the post, I thought they were interviewing you! Would have been a good choice.

    Smile Wednesday - August 19, 2009

    Dear MSSA Friends,

    You'll remember that CNN was recently in Montana gathering material for a segment on the Lou Dobbs show concerning the Montana Firearms Freedom Act.

    I just got a call from the story editor to say that the story should be on the Dobbs show tonight, which airs in Montana from 5-6 PM. If the story doesn't make it tonight, Chris said, it will be on tomorrow. He said it's a long segment compared to the length of what usually runs on the Dobbs show.

    Exclamation CNN false alarm - Thursday - 8-20-09

    Thursday - August 20, 2009 Email

    Dear MSSA Friends,

    About the pending CNN story about the Montana Firearms Freedom Act, I just got this in from the CNN producer:

    "This is on the back burner until next week...I will be in touch then..."

    Makes me wonder if there's a deluge of pressing news, or if maybe, just maybe, somebody's trying to get the story spiked. Who knows!

    So, you can quit holding your breath (if you were).

    Sorry about that - beyond my control.

    Best wishes,

    Gary Marbut, president

    This segment should be on CNN - I missed it.

    Gary sent out an email and link for the You Tube deal.

    I will try to post it even if I have not seen it yet.

    Did you notice that they put it on their show on a Holiday Weekend? That stinks!

    Looks like a decent report to me with a focus on State rights. It puts firearms into their rightful place--next to the radishes!

    Today's CNN segment about the Montana Firearms Freedom Act is now viewable on YouTube at:

    At 3:03 "...95% of homes contain a firearm in Montana..."

    Just watched the video.
    That was....amazing! I like Virginia but I'm starting to feel like I should move to Montana!

    Especially after I found this site! <grin>

    Catherine
    For a cable news story, that did not seem to be "really short"*. Did CNN air a shorter version than the YouTube clip?




    *Of course, that says more about both the average length of a news story and the average attention span of watchers than it does about anything else.

    My opinion?
    This challenge to Federal authority and their abuse of the Interstate Commerce clause is huge. It deserves to be "Lead story" and "headline" material rather than an interesting side story.
    There is no such thing as a collective right, government rights, states rights, cumulative rights, social rights, or social justice.
    All rights are individual. The same goes for justice.

    If federal law trumps state law, how come the 2nd amendment doesnt trump state law.

    Wrong! Most of them have many firearms
