I appreciate the story, but as with everything, there is so much more to it. Join the Montana Filmmakers & Media group via Facebook to learn more.…

Re: “Montana Film Office

Get an idea of film's economic impact in Montana, with actual numbers.…

Here's a plan to have the film office, the tourism office, and the Historical Society working hand in hand to get more films made about the state, and thus more interest in coming here and spending money.…

Re: “Shooting the moon

Waste of time and taxpayer money. The police in Missoula have shot more people than the criminals and just how many gun crimes are committed in Missoula?

Re: “Shooting the moon

It's to bad this councilor and the others can't focus on something more relevant like getting spending under control.

Re: “Postal service

Sandra - that's a good point; one I didn't think about. The box is YOUR property; therefore, the post office shouldn't have say about who else touches it. You, however, have that right.

He has no business touching any part of my mailbox. If any of my mail comes up missing, he's suspect #1.

Re: “Shooting the moon

Perfect proof that being a "rocket scientist" doesn't necessarily make you smart. Let the Californication of Montana begin, starting with outsiders such as this bozo, funded by out-of-state money. And the funniest part isn't that this legislator is trying to bypass state law, but that if this somehow miraculously passes, pawn shops and gun shops in Missoula will feel the financial brunt of this due to Missoula residents simply patronizing out-of-city pawn shops and gun shops, or making sure their private transactions occur outside of Missoula.

Way to go, von Lossberg. You're on the road to financially impacting the constituents you allegedly serve. In fact, I would charge that you don't serve your Missoula constituents, but rather the out-of-state money interests that are funding your war chest. You're a disgrace.

Re: “Postal service

It will probably cost him more to go to court than it would have for bulk rate postage or for a couple of teens to hang them on doors.

Re: “Shooting the moon

"Days ahead of the Oct. 19 public hearing, Fox indicated his leanings in a press release saying he believes the proposed ordinance is prohibited by state law and "likely violates our constitutional right to keep and bear arms."

I don't have any Constitutional rights. I have unalienable Constitutionally PROTECTED rights which we the people created the govt and gave it the DUTY to protect.

"After the ordinance's public hearing in October, political and public will seemed to be in its favor. A survey of 350 Missoula County residents, commissioned by advocates, found that 82 percent of gun owners, including 73 percent of Republicans and 70 percent of independents, supported requiring background checks on all gun sales. The majority of submitted public comment and testimony was in favor of the ordinance. And the votes from council appeared to be there."

A survey commissioned by the advocates? Oh pleaeeeess. LOL If I pay you to do a survey you had better come up with results favorable to what I'm advocating. Behavior mod/group management facilitation 101

Re: “University District

Since when in America do we have to present our tastes and plans to surrounding neighbors before we build, landscape, or even buy a car? If it is done within the law and its codes, why the brouhaha? Bitter hearts? Please! Get over it! If you want restrictions, live in a neighborhood that has deed restrictions or homeowner associations.
The complaining is getting old, and this is a very weak article. The cartoon, however, says it all!
Find another cause to focus your energy, jealousy, and power trips! Hey, how about turning it into something positive for a change of heart?!

Re: “Postal service

18 USC 1702, 1705, 1708, and 1725. As far as I know, the USC, United States Code, is the Law, not a guideline or "rule". USPS does not make the Laws in the US Code.

Re: “Postal service

The article states that 35 years ago, a USPS "rule" that the inside of a mail box is postal property was upheld in the courts. Later, the USPS added to the "rule," stating the box itself, but not the post, is post office property. So, if this isn't an actual law, I hope the court rules in flyer-man's favor. Anyone can make up a "rule," but does that make it a legality that we have to "obey"?

Re: “Shooting the moon

I have a question for all involved here. How many gun crimes, in the city of missoula, have been committed with a gun bought privately without a background check? I don't know if the answer is 1000 or 0. But to me this does make a difference. If its 0 quit wasting taxpayer money, if its 1000 I might get on board too.

Re: “University District

It's the old conundrum : Where does one person's rights end, when exercising those rights may adversely impact others ? Because I could make some money by doing so, should I be allowed to set up a rock crusher or an asphalt plant on my private property, even if it's in a residential neighborhood ?

My right to swing my fist stops short of your nose.

Re: “University District

I agree completely "the monstrosity" as I call it is tacky - not so much because the architecture is bad, it's really not, but so completely unfitting in the neighborhood.

All to show, the rich have no taste.

Since when does some religious zealot's filing of a "religious objection" give him or her the right to imperil his/her kid's health ? And perhaps more important, that of other kids ?

Re: “Postal service

If he attaches the flyer to the letterbox, or any part of the letterbox, yes, it is a criminal offense covered by the USC Statutes previously listed.

If it is on the supporting post, then no, that is not considered part of the letterbox.

The story said that this loon attached the flyer in various locations around and on the letterboxes.

Re: “Shooting the moon

I do not care what a gun owner in Missoula or some gun control advocate says! This will set a president, soon all the anti gunners will be looking to employ the same law and more in every county of Montana. you want to see where this goes look at California. No single gun law is enough, they want more and more until your stripped. Mr Missoua man, Do not think for a one second they wont add your name to an unapproved list, if you own guns your not in favor of the King. your a useful idiot. you weakness does not trump my rights.

Re: “University District

Let's be frank - in Missoula you can do what you want unless it bothers someone else. Whether it's building the house that you want, selling a gun to a family member, or putting up a funky-looking building where an old Italian market used to be, you can do it...but by God, be ready for the consequences.

See, we like to say we love freedom and tolerance, but then when that gets in the way of our preconceived notions and accepted viewpoints it becomes problematic. We lash out, point fingers, and call names. Because gosh darn, don't 'those people' know better?

This is Missoula, for goodness sakes, and we have standards and a history. We have honor to maintain, and legacies to live up to.

So do it our way, and if you don't know what that is, we'll darn-well make sure you do after the fact.

Missoula - stay weird.
