Minnesoata: Anti-Gun Legislators Trying to Remove Pro-Gun Amendment from Trauma Care Bill!

Wednesday, May 5, 2010

When Senate File 2866 was originally introduced, it contained a potential backdoor registration scheme that would have empowered the Commissioner of Health or any trauma hospital to collect and store a patients firearm ownership and carry permit information, creating a defacto gun registration system.   

Coming to the aide of law-abiding gun owners, pro-gun State Representative Mary Holberg (R-36A) offered an amendment to Senate File 2866 which would prevent the Commissioner of Health or any trauma hospital from creating such a registry.  On April 8, this amendment was adopted with broad bi-partisan support in the House by a vote of 92 to 38.  But now, anti-gun legislators are attempting to remove Representative Holberg's amendment in conference committee. 

Please contact the following conferees and leadership members and urge them to support State Representative Holberg's amendment and to OPPOSE the firearm registration scheme.
