Minnesota: Your Urgent Action Needed to Ensure Self-Defense Bills Advance in the Legislature

Earlier this month, both House File 188, the constitutional/permitless carry bill, and House File 238, the stand your ground bill, were both held over by the House Committee on Public Safety & Security Policy and Finance with the intention of being included in the committee’s omnibus bill, House File 896It is imperative that you contact Speaker Kurt Daudt, Majority Leader Joyce Peppin, and Committee Chairman Tony Cornish to voice support for the inclusion of both HF 188 and HF 238 in HF 896!  Tell these legislators that law-abiding gun owners across Minnesota are eager to see these important self-defense bills move forward in the House of Representatives.

HF 188 would eliminate the requirement to obtain a permit in order to lawfully carry.  This bill recognizes a law-abiding adult’s unconditional Right to Keep and Bear Arms for self-defense in the manner he or she chooses.  Self-defense situations are difficult, if not impossible, to anticipate.  Accordingly, a law-abiding adult’s right to defend themselves in such situations should not be conditioned by government-mandated time delays and taxes.  HF 188 does not eliminate Minnesota’s current carry permitting system.  An optional carry permit will still be available for Minnesotans who choose to obtain one.

HF 238 would make numerous reforms to Minnesota’s self-defense laws, including the elimination of the duty to retreat in cases of self-defense.

Again, please click the “Take Action” button above to contact Speaker Kurt Daudt, Majority Leader Joyce Peppin, and Committee Chairman Tony Cornish with your support for the inclusion of both HF 188 and HF 238 in the committee’s omnibus bill!  Stay tuned to your email inbox and www.nraila.org for further updates on these bills.
