Tester Votes to Restrict Montanans’ Second Amendment Rights
Last week, Senator Jon Tester quietly voted for more gun control and greater restrictions on Montanans’ constitutional right to keep and bear arms.
It’s no wonder that Senator Tester tried to keep his anti-Montana votes a secret. After all, Tester’s votes show that once again, he is abandoning his promises to Montanans to prop up President Obama and Hillary Clinton’s liberal, anti-Second Amendment agenda.
Make no mistake — Montanans’ Second Amendment Rights are under attack from Senator Tester, President Obama and Hillary Clinton. Senator Tester’s anti-Second Amendment votes will only pave the way for extremists to push forward with their ultimate objective of further restricting Montanans’ lawful access to firearms.
Once again, Jon Tester’s voting record shows he’s more concerned with Washington, D.C. politics than Montana values.
Senator Tester: Voting to restrict Montanans’ constitutional freedoms– voting for more gun control– is not a Montana value.
