APPEARS IN Legal & Legislation

Minnesota Anti-Gun Bills Pending Action!

Friday, March 7, 2008

House File 3324, sponsored by State Representative Michael Paymar and Senate File 2989 introduced by State Senator Yvonne Prettner Solon would require detailed buyer AND seller information on gun sales for inclusion in a database.  Because all gun show sales are included, the bill extends to pistols, rifles and shotguns.  Just as bad, the bills expand Minnesota’s waiting period to 7 business days, meaning gun buyers could have to wait as many as 10 days after, accounting for weekend days!  

This needless legislation simply creates more bureaucratic red tape for law-abiding gun owners and does nothing to address criminals buying guns on the black market.  HF 3324 has been assigned to the Public Safety and Civil Justice Committee, but it has not been scheduled for a hearing yet.  Please contact the committee members and respectfully ask them to oppose these harassing and ineffective bills.
