Minnesota:  Omnibus Anti-Gun Legislation Could be Acted on Any Day

On Saturday, May 11, at noon or at the call of the chair, in room 120 of the Capitol, the Judiciary/Public Safety conference committee on SF 802 will reconvene. The agenda contains various items and others may be added including the House gun control measures, HF 8 (UBC) and HF 9 (Red Flags).  Please continue to 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. 

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. 

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.
