Gun grabbers in St. Paul

Gun grabbers in St. Paul

Now that the hearings on “gun-safety” are underway in St. Paul I strongly suggest all law-abiding citizens in Minnesota take a long, hard look at the insane proposals coming out of these hearings.

So far we have anti-gun legislators proposing everything from allowing sheriffs to deny law-abiding citizens their right to obtain a permit to carry without the burden of proof (HF 240), to discriminating against permit-to-carry holders with higher penalties for trespassing statutes (HF 239).

We have legislators in St. Paul that actually think it will make you safer if they confiscate or destroy legally owned guns (HF 241), or make us surrender all magazines with a capacity higher than 10 rounds (HF 242) or 7 rounds (HF 243).

There are nearly 113,000 law-abiding citizens of Minnesota with permits-to-carry, and many, many more who legally own guns.

We need to make our voices heard. Call your legislator and demand that they respect and fight for your rights against gun-grabbing politicians that refuse to acknowledge the simple truth that we (law-abiding gun owners) are NOT the problem. Tell them to stop the ideological smear campaign and respect our rights. After all, gun owners vote.
