An interesting comment from the Montana Secretary of State...
Nicki at The Liberty Zone posts an interesting letter to the editor that was published in the Washington Times. I am more than a little surprised at the content of the letter coming from an apparantly official source. She didn't have a link, but I found what looks like the same content from a Reason post. My first concern is authenticity; the website hosting this claim is not exactly professionally-done, and it claims that the state of Montana couldn't afford to file an amicus brief in the Heller case for cost reasons; I have a hard time believing that a state government can't find the money to file an amicus brief in a single Supreme Court case.
So, I'd like to see some confirmation before taking this very seriously, but they raise an... interesting... question.
And that's all I'm going to say about that until I find out whether it's real.
