Question from reporter by email: Hi, I’m a reporter with the Huffington Post and I wanted to get your thoughts on the Montana bill that recently passed the House that seeks to nullify a potential gun ban, as well as similar bills in other states you are tracking.

In his latest opinion column, Moran refers to “universal reverence for our Founding Fathers” as the “secular religion” of the United States.
