    If you are basing this on Max Baucus recent gun safety votes...  Schweitzer is just as bad if not worse:

    Montana’s Schweitzer blames violent video games after school massacre

    The brutal attack sparked a nationwide debate about gun regulation, mental health care and the American culture of violence. Talking heads and politicos looking to politicize the tragedy for ratings or popularity among voters have blamed the shooting on everything from lack of mental health care access nationally to a media that turns shooters into competitors and heroes.

    A number of pro-National Rifle Association lawmakers, including West Virginia’s Democratic U.S. Sen. Joe Manchin, are now re-thinking their nearly open-ended commitment to pro-gun policies, arguing for a national discussion on gun control.

    Schweitzer’s not buying what Manchin and others are selling.

    During a morning radio interview Tuesday, the outgoing governor said that while guns might be deadly, so are propane and gasoline.

    “I don’t want to sound like a terrorist here, but you give me 20 gallons of propane, I can do a lot of damage in a very short period of time,” the governor told radio host Aaron Flint. “If there are evil people they can use guns, or as we’ve seen in Russia, they can also use things like propane. You can use natural gas. Five gallons of gasoline and imagine what can happen.”

    Text of the New Law

    Schweitzer’s record on environmental and climate change issues are horrific.

    I have no problem running someone to unseat Baucus but Schweitzer isn't your guy.
