Looters and Rioters Want Your Guns!

Minneapolis and hundreds of other cities across the country have been rocked with violence, looting, and arson over the last few weeks by Antifa/BLM activists.

Traditionally, when a group of thugs use violence to accomplish their political agenda, they are labeled as political terrorists and arrested.

Not anymore.

And as violent thugs tear down our statues and destroy our history, anti-gun radicals like Antifa and BLM are demanding passage of radical gun control during the final days of the 2020 special session.

Implicit in their demands is the very real threat that if they don’t get their way, Minneapolis, St Cloud (and other Minnesota towns) may soon see violent riots and looting resume with a vengeance.

Remember, these are the same thugs and criminals that were BURNING Minneapolis to the ground only a few weeks ago!


But if you think that the politicians in St Paul are going to stand up to these criminals, to send a message that we don’t create policy here in Minnesota with a political gun to our head, you’d be mistaken.

Already the Minnesota Senate Majority Leader, Paul Gazelka, is vowing to pilfer the pockets of farmers, small businesses and rural Minnesotans to bail out Democrat Minneapolis Mayor Jacob Frey who allowed Minneapolis to be looted and burned!

So, weak and failed “leaders” like Tim Walz and Jacob Frey let our cities go to hell, and our Republican Senate wants to give them HUNDREDS of MILLIONS of your tax dollars to bail them out…

This, of course, is the same Paul Gazelka who has refused to advance Constitutional Carry and Stand-Your-Ground law for the last FOUR years — even though hundreds of thousands of emails have been sent to the Capitol backing these bills.

The message that the politicians in St Paul are sending is crystal clear:

We will happily tell law abiding gun owners to pound sand when they peacefully call for Constitutional Carry and Stand-Your-Ground law, but when violent thugs start looting and rioting in the street, we’ll pay attention and give them what they want.

How pathetic.

But the real threat to gun owners may still be coming.

Capitol insiders report that another special session is on the way in St Paul, and that there may be a gun control push coming in the Senate from the hard left, using the implied threats from Antifa and BLM as leverage.

And with the abject weakness that we are seeing from ‘pro-gun lawmakers’ in St Paul right now, it’s impossible to know just how far they might be willing to go to try to please these thugs.

So even though we are hearing that an attack against our gun rights may be in the works, hopefully there isn’t enough time for it to get off the ground.

But we are monitoring this closely and will provide action links if they become necessary.

In the meantime, if you are not already a member of Minnesota Gun Rights, we need you now, more than ever!

And if you’re already a member but can afford to make a special donation, please do so here.

These are bizarre times that we are living in, to be sure. Thank you, in advance, for standing up for our right to keep and bear arms and for the future of our country!

For Minnesota,
