Universal Citation: MT Code § 45-8-107 (2020)

45-8-107. Purpose. The legislature recognizes every citizen's constitutional right to express beliefs on any subject, to associate with others who share similar beliefs, and to keep or bear arms in defense of home, person, or property. Sections 45-8-107 through 45-8-109 are not intended to interfere with the exercise of rights protected by the United States constitution or the state constitution. The legislature finds that conspiracies and training activities in the furtherance of unlawful acts of violence against persons or property are not constitutionally protected, pose a threat to public order and safety, and are subject to criminal penalties.

History: En. Sec. 1, Ch. 492, L. 1991.
