Montana passed a law on Friday that prohibits "the enforcement of any federal ban or regulation of firearms, magazines, ammunition, ammunition components, or firearm accessories."

The law is effective immediately and applies retroactively to January 1, 2021.

🔦 Arizona passed a law earlier this month that prohibits law enforcement from enforcing federal gun regulations that are inconsistent with the state's existing gun regulations.

"That was a proactive law for what is possible to come out of the Biden administration," Ducey said.

Arkansas Gov. Asa Hutchinson (R) vetoed a bill on Friday that would have prohibited local police from enforcing federal gun laws, saying it would "break that partnership [between state and federal law enforcement] and put the safety of Arkansas at risk."

Oklahoma awaits Gov. Kevin Stitt's (R) decision on a bill that would designate the state as a "sanctuary state" for Second Amendment rights.
