Western Lawmakers Push for State Sovereignty

Hosted by

The Montana Firearms Freedom Act is scheduled to go into effect in October, just one example of a new states' rights movement that includes the West as well as the South. Montana's Governor Brian Schweitzer is a Democrat who supported Barack Obama, but has signed into law the bill designed to challenge the President's authority. Mark Barabak reports for the Los Angeles Times.
