Please Contact Senate Judiciary Committee Members TODAY

Next week, the Senate Judiciary Committee will begin two days of hearings on dangerous anti-gun measures that would infringe upon our Right to Keep and Bear Arms.  This committee will be considering Senate File 205, an omnibus anti-gun bill. Your voice is desperately needed in Saint Paul to prevent tried and failed policies that will do nothing more than disarm honest law-abiding gun owners and infringe on constitutional rights. 

Senate File 205, introduced by state Senator Bobby Champion (DFL-59), would create new categories of “prohibited persons” for gun ownership and eliminate your right to keep and bear arms without due process.  It would also criminalize private transfers of firearms with limited exceptions, add new fees (taxes) for transfers and transferee permits, limit the ability of the carry permit to function as a transferee permit and create a possible thirty-day waiting period to verify an individual’s identity during the application process for a transferee permit.

Government officials should not consider and pass failed anti-gun policies that would do nothing to address existing crime.  They should focus on issues that would empower the law-abiding public to protect themselves and loved ones from violent and insane criminals.

  • Largest Gun Control Push in Minnesota History Started Today

    Today, the House Public Safety, Finance and Policy Committee began three days of hearings on multiple dangerous anti-gun bills.  They have already heard testimony on House Files 237 and 240, and will hear House Files  238, 239 and others this evening.  Please review the summaries below of the most egregious of these serious threats to our Second Amendment rights in Minnesota. Government officials would do better to focus on issues that would rationally address existing crime problems and empower the law-abiding public to protect themselves and loved ones than to target an entire class of people because it is politically popular at the moment.
