If you appreciate an independent voice holding Montana politicians accountable and informing voters, and you can throw a few dollars a month our way, we would certainly appreciate it.


  • “An Indianapolis mother shot a man “multiple times” after he allegedly broke into the home through the window in the baby’s room.

    According to CBS 4, family members said that around noon on March 24, the woman “heard the window get busted and she called her husband and said I think somebody’s breaking in the house.”

    She grabbed her pistol and ran toward the sound of breaking glass, only to be confronted by the alleged intruder who shot at her, but missed.

    The mother then opened fire and struck the suspect “multiple times.” He was transported to a hospital for treatment.

    In addition to being armed, a 911 dispatcher said the suspect was “carrying zip ties and a walkie-talkie.””-Hawkins.

  • “On March 30 a disabled veteran outside of Savannah survived an alleged home invasion and afterward credited his gun with saving his life.

    The incident occurred around 5:45 a.m. in “a mobile home community.”

    According to WTOC, Lam Blake says he “woke up to two people breaking into his home, saying they were police.” But when he saw the two suspects on his surveillance camera “He knew they were not officers,” so he retrieved his gun and waited.

    Blake said, “I immediately grabbed my 9 mil Smith and Wesson M&P, loaded it up, and waited for them to come all the way in.” When the two suspects made it into the trailer they allegedly fired at Blake first, then he fired back. Although no one was hit, the return fire caused the suspects to flee.

    Bullet holes are visible in the walls of Blake’s trailer, but he takes comfort in the fact that he was armed for self-defense. He said, “My gun saved my life, yes it did.”-Hawkins.
