Minnesota: Anti-Gun Legislators Attempting to Amend Pro-Gun Legislation

Tomorrow, the following critical pro-gun bills will be heard on the House floor and anti-gun legislators are attempting to attach anti-gun amendments to some of the following bills.  As reported here and here, these measures previously passed with strong support out of committee last month.  It is imperative that you contact your state Representative IMMEDIATELY and urge them to vote in SUPPORT of the following bills and AGAINST any anti-gun amendments.

House File 722, authored by Representatives Jim Newberger (R-15B), Eric Lucero (R-30B) and Josh Heintzeman (R-10A), would prohibit any government agency from confiscating or regulating the lawful possession, carrying, transfer, transportation and defensive use of firearms or ammunition during a state of emergency, like the actions that occurred in the wake of Hurricane Katrina in New Orleans, Louisiana.  This important language was passed overwhelmingly by the House and Senate in 2012, but was part of a bill which Governor Dayton vetoed.

House File 830, authored by state Representatives Eric Lucero (R-30B), Tony Cornish (R-23B) and David Dill (DFL-03A), would align Minnesota with more than 40 states that have conformed their statutes to federal law so that their residents can purchase rifles and shotguns in non-contiguous states, provided that the purchase or transfer complies with state and federal law.  Currently, Minnesota statute affirms that residents may purchase long guns in Minnesota and bordering states, but remains silent on whether or not residents might purchase long guns in non-contiguous states.

House File 1434, authored by state Representatives Tony Cornish (R-23B), Mark Anderson (R-09A), and David Dill (DFL-03A), would legalize ownership and possession of firearm sound suppressors.  For more information on this legislation and the benefits of shooting suppressed, click here.

House File 372, authored by state Representatives Jim Nash (R-47), David Dill (DFL-03A) and Tim Miller (R-17A), modifies the Capitol Carry Notification provision.  Current statute allows permit holders to carry on the capitol complex as long as the permit holder “so notify the sheriff or the commissioner of public safety, as appropriate.”  This legislation would update and clarify the statute to provide that application for permit constitutes “notification,” as required.

Please contact your state Representative today and request that they vote in support of HF 722, HF 830, HF 1434 and HF 372 without any additional amendments when these bills come before them tomorrow.
