This morning in the state House Public Safety Committee, anti-gun Representative Michael Paymar’s (DFL-64B) gun control package, House File 237, stalled for lack of support.  The Committee vote that was originally scheduled for this morning has now been rescheduled for this evening at 7:00 pm, providing the anti-gun forces more time to ram this unpopular infringement on our rights through the legislative process.

As previously reported, the Paymar gun control laundry-list would be an unprecedented infringement on our constitutional right to bear arms.  Your efforts are working!  Please keep contacting members of this Committee and continue to urge them to OPPOSE this intrusive violation of our Right to Keep and Bear Arms.

    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.

  • Minnesota Gun Control Bills Gaining Momentum- Your State Legislators Need to Hear from You TODAY!

    Some of the most comprehensive violations of our Right to Keep and Bear Arms in recent memory passed last night  in the Senate Judiciary Committee by 5 to 3 votes.  Senate File 458 and Senate File 235 were amended by anti-gun Senator Ron Latz (DFL- 46) into extreme gun control omnibus bills which would criminalize private transfers of firearms with limited exceptions, make the transferee permit discretionary, create a possible thirty-day waiting period to verify an individual’s identity during the application process for a transferee permit, among other things. Senate File 235 has been referred to the Senate Finance Committee where it has yet to be scheduled for a hearing.  Senate File 458 has been sent to the Senate floor and could come up for a vote at any time!
