Minnesota Gun Registration Scheme to be Heard Friday!

Wednesday, March 4, 2009

Please Contact the Members of the House Crime Victims/Criminal Records Division!

On Friday, March 6, House File 953, introduced by State Representative Michael Paymar (DFL-64B), will be voted on by the House Crime Victims/Criminal Records Division Committee. 

This bill was designed to not only regulate the sale of firearms at gun shows, but to regulate the sale of firearms between law-abiding persons, all across Minnesota.  As a whole, HF 953 will only affect law-abiding gun owners, and in no way keeps guns out of the hands of criminals. 

A particularly troublesome provision in HF 953 creates a de facto registration system by requiring records of all transfers to be maintained by the state.  These records would be made available to all authorities, including for use in “civil” cases, which are often brought by anti-gun government officials and are designed to damage or interfere with lawful commerce in firearms. 

HF 953 is a direct attack on Minnesota’s gun rights. It also removes the carry permit holders’ exemption from the purchase permit requirement for all handgun or semi-automatic rifle purchases, not just those completed at gun shows, and increases the waiting period from five to seven days. 

Please contact the members of the Crime Victims/Criminal Records Division Committee TODAY and respectfully urge them to protect our Second Amendment rights and oppose this bill.  Contact information can be found below.
