Minnesota Anti-Gun Bill Survives House Committee, Goes to Full House for Final Approval
Posted on March 22, 2013
Minnesota Governor Mark Dayton (DFL) will be hosting another Town Hall meeting next Thursday, April 4, in Rochester. After the Governor’s public comments (see news article here), it is very important to attend and express your opposition to banning and criminalizing any private transfers of firearms – including those between certain family members, friends and hunting buddies. As reported by the NRA-ILA, the gun control bills moving through the state legislature that Governor Dayton supports are some of the most invasive infringements of the Second Amendment in recent memory.
On Thursday, March 14, at 6:00 pm in Room 15 of the state Capitol, the Senate Judiciary Committee will hear state Senator Ron Latz’s (DFL-46) anti-gun omnibus amendment to Senate File 458.
On Wednesday, March 6, state representatives Debra Hilstrom (DFL-40B) and Tony Cornish (R-23B) and 78 bipartisan cosponsors introduced HF 1325. In conjunction with HF 1323 and HF 1324, these bills offer real solutions as an alternative to state Representative Michael Paymar’s (DFL-64B) HF 237 and Senator Ron Latz’s (DFL-46) soon to be introduced anti-gun omnibus bill.
