Minnesota - House Passes Right to Carry Bill, Moves To Senate
Friday, April 25, 2003
By a wide bi-partisan vote, the House of Representatives passed NRA-backed Right to Carry legislation on Wednesday! The 88-46 vote came after 6 hours of debate on the measure in which the NRA defeated every eviscerating amendment offered by the anti-gun legislators. The bill, SF 842, guarantees law-abiding gun owners the right to apply for and receive a concealed-carry permit from their county Sheriff. Now, SF 842 moves to the Senate where action could be taken any day. Please call your Senator today at 651-296-0504 or 888-234-1112 and ask them to vote "YES" for final passage of SF 842 without amendment.
