Minnesota: Conference Committee Hearings Begin Today on Omnibus Anti-Gun Legislation

Minnesota: Conference Committee Hearings Begin Today on Omnibus Anti-Gun Legislation

Today, a conference committee will convene to consider Omnibus Judiciary and Public Safety bills, SF 802 /HF 2792.  Last week, The Minnesota House considered the Senate Judiciary Omnibus Bill, Senate File 802, and during their consideration amended the legislation to contain the same language as the House Public Safety /Judiciary Omnibus Bill, House File 2792.  The House Version contains House File 8 and House File 9, two gun control measures that are opposed by NRA.  Due to this, the conference committee will now meet to reconcile the differences between the Senate and House Omnibus bills.  Please contact members of the conference committee and urge them to OPPOSE any attempts to include anti-gun language in the Public Safety/Judiciary Omnibus Bill. 

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.

Again, please contact conference committee members and urge them to OPPOSE any attempt to include gun control language in the Omnibus bill.
