State Legislation

Tell the Legislature to FIX Stand-Your-Ground law!

We can’t let up now. If you’ve been getting our emails for the last week, you know that a watered-down version of Stand-Your-Ground is working its way through the legislature. Because of the avalanche of phone calls, emails and Facebook messages to your legislators demanding REAL pro-gun bills pass this year and with the legislature only about a month away from adjournment, leadership in the House is panicking. In a

Video Update on Stand-Your-Ground law

Stand-Your-Ground law needs your help! Because of all the pressure you and I have been pouring into the capitol for Constitutional Carry, and with leadership doing everything they can to block it, they’re trotting out a watered-down Stand-Your-Ground bill to try to dupe gun owners. Please take a moment and immediately watch the video from our Political Director and when you’re done, TAKE ACTION! As you saw in the video,

Don't let them water down Stand-Your-Ground!

The fight is on for Stand-Your-Ground law. As you know, Minnesota Gun Rights along with our members and supporters, have been fighting hard to pass REAL pro-gun bills in Minnesota. From our founding in 2013, restoring Constitutional Carry and Stand-Your-Ground law for gun owners have been our two primary policy objectives. And sometimes we find ourselves heavily on defense as we were in 2013-2016 as Senator Ron Latz tried to

I got a phone call.

Tuesday afternoon at our headquarters in Northfield I got a phone call from a gun owner in House District 15B. The caller told me that after reading our email from earlier that morning he called his representative, Jim Newberger, who is on the House Public Safety Committee, to urge him to do all he can to move HF309 out of his committee and into the Rules committee. He had spoken

Fill up their voicemail!

The Minnesota legislature is on Easter break for this entire week, so now is the perfect time to pour phone calls into their offices. As you know, Representative Cal Bahr’s Constitutional Carry bill (HF309) is still on lockdown in the House Public Safety Committee. If Constitutional Carry is going to pass, HF309 needs to be moved out of the Public Safety Committee and into the Rules committee, which is immune

National Update on the Second Amendment

When it comes to the Second Amendment, it can be easy to think we live in a vacuum here in Minnesota. We certainly share your frustration with House Leadership’s refusal to move substantive pro gun bills while at the same time allowing legislation that presents long-term obstacles for defending the Second Amendment. But politics runs on momentum, and that is never more true than when it comes to gun rights!

Society's Model Citizens

Since the start of the 2017 session, gun owners across the state have been demanding passage of Constitutional Carry legislation. Your voice and the voices of thousands of other gun owners across the state have been THUNDERING under the capitol dome in St Paul with all of your phone calls, emails and signed petitions in support for this critical legislation. But now, Representative Cal Bahr’s HF309 (Constitutional Carry) is being

Take Action for Constitutional Carry!

Major Announcement from the Board of Directors of MGR

We have some important news! I just got off a conference call with Speaker Daudt and Rep. Tony Cornish where they both apologized for blocking and waylaying HF309, Constitutional Carry! Even better, they’ve promised to move HF309 out of Chairman Cornish’s Public Safety Committee and into the Rules committee to make it immune to the committee deadlines! Lastly, they crossed their hearts and said they’re gonna blast it out onto

Constitutional Carry, the Next Step

The fight for Constitutional Carry is NOT over. Not even close. As we said in our last email, HF188 (the weak version of Constitutional Carry) has been scuttled by House leadership. But now isn’t the time to back off. HF309, the rock-solid Constitutional Carry bill by Representative Cal Bahr, is very much alive and well, waiting to be passed out of the Public Safety Committee and sent to the Rules
