A Montana state lawmaker claims that the US Constitution approves of jailing or shooting anyone who identifies as socialist. State Rep. Rodney Garcia framed his remark as a question at a state party gathering in Helena on Friday, then confirmed it to a reporter the next day: "So actually in the Constitution of the United States [if] they are found guilty of being a socialist member you either go to prison or are shot," he told the Billings Gazette. "They're enemies of the free state. What do we do with our enemies in war? In Vietnam, (Afghanistan), all those. What did we do?" unquote

Let me explain something.

THE CONSTITUTION OF THE STATE OF MONTANA
ARTICLE II. DECLARATION OF RIGHTS
Part II. DECLARATION OF RIGHTS
Right To Bear Arms
Section 12. Right to bear arms.

THE CONSTITUTION OF THE STATE OF MONTANA
TRANSITION SCHEDULE
Part 1. TRANSITION SCHEDULE
Prospective Operation Of Declaration Of Rights
Section 3. Prospective operation of declaration of rights. Any rights, procedural or substantive, created for the first time by Article II shall be prospective and not retroactive.
Blacks Law Dictionary 6th.
Prospective. In the future; looking forward; contemplating the future.
McDonald v. City of Chicago, Ill., 561 US 742 - Supreme Court 2010
"We therefore hold that the Due Process Clause of the Fourteenth Amendment incorporates the Second Amendment right recognized in Heller."
The United States Supreme Court in District of Columbia v. Heller, 554 U.S. 570, 592, 171 L.Ed 2d 637, 128 S.Ct. 2783 (2008) declared:
“Our opinion is, that any law, State or Federal, is repugnant to the Constitution, and void, which contravenes this right, originally belonging to our forefathers.”
As a matter of law the conceal carry part of the Montana constitution is void.
