Stand up for your Right to Keep and Bear Arms


As previously reported here by NRA-ILA, on Tuesday, February 5, the Minnesota House Public Safety Finance and Policy Committee will begin three days of hearings to consider sweeping restrictions on our right to keep and bear arms. The committee will be considering a ban on commonly owned semi-automatic firearms - including common hunting rifles - as well as imposition of magazine capacity restrictions, a ban on private transfers, and institution of a universal background check system.  Your voice is desperately needed in Saint Paul to prevent tried and failed policies that will do nothing more than disarm honest law-abiding gun owners and infringe on our rights.

It is important that you attend these hearings and stand up for our Second Amendment rights before it is too late Show your elected officials that you support our right to keep and bear arms by wearing an NRA hat, shirt or button.  Testimony will begin each morning at 10:00 a.m. and may be followed by an additional period at 6:00 p.m. each evening.  Information on how to testify can be found  here. For more information and facts, please visit www.gunbanfacts.com.
