Last week, the House Public Safety Committee passed two anti-gun bills out of committee, House File 8 and House File 9. These bills now head to the House Judiciary Committee for a scheduled hearing on Wednesday, March 6. Please contact committee members and urge them to OPPOSE House File 8 and House File 9.
House File 8, sponsored by Rep. Dave Pinto (64B-DFL), would impose so-called “universal” background checks for most private firearm transfers, potentially criminalizing almost all private firearm transfers in Minnesota.
House File 9, sponsored by Rep. Ruth Richardson (52B-DFL), would violate an individual’s constitutional rights and allow for a chief law enforcement officer or designee to petition the court for an ex parte order to remove an individual’s Second Amendment rights without due process.
If you are able to, please attend this hearing at 7:00 PM in State Office Building 10. Also, please contact committee members and urge them to OPPOSE House File 8 and House File 9.
