One of the 136 organizations filing friends of the court briefs for or against the Affordable Care Act is the Montana Shooting Sports Association.

The shooting club has filed a 26-page brief calling the law a breach of states' rights. They have their eye on other lower court cases that involve the Commerce Act that is being considered in the health care law.

Quentin Rhoades, an attorney and a member of the Montana Shooting Sports Association, says that he helped to write the brief pro bono.

"It's part of an overall effort... to try to help reinvigorate the original theory of the Constitution--separation of power and dual sovereignty," he said. "It was set up in a way to give competing groups some real and independent power so that no particular.. group would get too much power."
