On Friday, the 9th US Circuit Court of Appeals upheld the decision of a lower court against the 2009 Montana Firearms Freedom Act. The law has also been adopted in many other pro-gun states, and it attempts to assert that federal firearms regulations are not applicable to guns that are made and maintained within the state.

However, the 9th Circuit kept the doors open for supporters of the law to take the matter to the U.S. Supreme Court.

Right now, the case seems destined for the U.S. Supreme Court as not only did the state of Montana intervene in support of the law, but other states like Utah, Idaho, Michigan, Alaska, Nebraska, South Carolina, South Dakota, Wyoming and West Virginia also came out in support.
