Minnesota: Anti-Gun Bill to be Heard in Committee on Friday!

Wednesday, March 3, 2010

Please Contact the Members of the Crime Victims/Criminal Records Sub-Committee!

Anti-gun State Representative Michael Paymar (DFL-64B) has once again introduced legislation that would severely regulate the sale of firearms at gun shows. 

House File 2960 would force private sales at gun shows to go through background checks.  Gun prohibitionists, like Representative Paymar, falsely claim that a large number of criminals get their guns from gun shows; however, the most recent federal study on gun shows put the figure at only 0.7 percent.  This effort is a stepping stone for gun control advocates seeking to ban all private sales, even among family and friends. 

HF2960 has been assigned to the Crime Victims/Criminal Records Sub-Committee.  The Sub-Committee will meet Friday, March 5 at 8:30 a.m. to consider the bill.

Please contact the members of the Crime Victims/Criminal Records Sub-Committee TODAY and respectfully urge them to oppose HF2960.  Contact the following members listed below.
