Today, the Senate Judiciary Committee concluded its two-day marathon of hearings on multiple dangerous anti-gun bills. As previously reported, these bills are the beginning of an all-out assault on our constitutional Right to Keep and Bear Arms. Although this Committee has not yet scheduled a vote on any of this legislation, gun owners and sportsmen across Minnesota must actively express opposition before Committee action is taken.
Like the House hearings, hundreds of Second Amendment supporters and patriots crammed into hearing rooms in St. Paul over the last two days and there is no doubt your presence has made a real difference. During this time, this Committee heard a variety of different bills designed to restrict, tax and even register legally owned firearms. In the coming weeks, it is expected that these different bills will be combined into one large omnibus bill so that it will be easier to ram through the state legislature as quickly as possible to avoid further public input. We cannot let that happen!
Your NRA-ILA will continue to update you as more details about this looming House and Senate gun ban become available. However, NOW is the time to contact your state Senator and state Representative and members of the House Public Safety Committee and Senate Judiciary Committee. Let them know that you will not tolerate more restrictions on our Right to Keep and Bear Arms.
