    Dear Oly,

    Thank you for contacting me about our Second Amendment rights as Americans.  I strongly support our right to bear arms and I will always stand up for gun rights in the U.S. Senate.

    Firearms play an important role in the heritage of Montana.  And I have consistently supported the rights of American gun owners.

    In fact, I took a lead role in crafting a bipartisan friend-of-the-court brief in favor of the Supreme Court decision overturning the District of Columbia's ban on individual firearms.  Senator Baucus and I also urged the Defense Logistics Agency (DLA) to reverse their decision that surplus brass casings on their munitions list be destroyed rather than sold.  I am pleased to report that the DLA agreed with our letter and reversed their position.

    I appreciate the time you have taken to be involved and informed about this issue.   Please do not hesitate to contact me if I can be of further assistance.


    Jon Tester
    United States Senator
