Location

220 W Lamme St. Bozeman MT

A crowd that gathered outside U.S. Sen. Max Baucus’ Bozeman office Friday represented the opposing pressures all Montana politicians have to balance in a state some dub as politically purple.

The noon rally, initiated by Mayors Against Illegal Guns, was billed as a protest against Baucus’ “no” vote to background checks on Wednesday in the U.S. Senate. The Manchin-Toomey bill would have expanded background checks to include private sales at gun shows and all Internet sales, while continuing to exempt most sales between family members and friends.
