Don't Give An Inch!

It’s been over a week since a madman launched a deadly attack in Las Vegas that killed and wounded hundreds of people. The pictures and videos that have emerged from that night are difficult to watch and even more difficult to understand –- and compounded by the fact that we may never know the motive behind this attack. Here’s what we know is true: every time a shooting like this

Anti-Gun Wolves in Sheep's Clothing in St Paul!

I have some very troubling news to share with you so please read this email in its entirety and take action to defend the Second Amendment in Minnesota. As you know, we spent the entirety of the 2017 session working to get Stand-Your-Ground law and Constitutional Carry moving through the legislature. Thanks to all of your efforts, we made significant progress in the House, passing the Public Safety committee and

The noise you heard on Monday

That noise you heard was anti-gun Minnesota legislators Ron Latz, Erin Murphy and Paul Thissen DEMANDING new gun control for Minnesota. Latz: “I will continue to push for gun safety reforms at the State Capitol.” Murphy: “They pour millions into fear-based campaigns to push back on common-sense gun violence prevention efforts. They do not represent most Americans. We need to stand together, to push back on their agenda. The only

Bloomberg's Gun-Control Group Attacks, Blames MGR For Bloomington Mosque Attack!

I could hardly believe the words I was hearing when I first received the news. Shortly after the early-morning bombing of a Mosque in Bloomington, “Protect Minnesota” launched a full frontal assault, blaming Minnesota Gun Rights for somehow having “advance knowledge” of the attack! To gun-grabbers and their pals, Second Amendment supporters are nothing more than hate-filled troglodytes who are just itching for the opportunity to kill and destroy. In

Help Stop The "Disarm Minnesota Act"

One vote in the Minnesota Senate could be all that stands between you and I and a new disastrous gun control scheme. Just one. With a stronger majority of supposed pro-gun legislators in the House, you might think your Second Amendment freedoms would be safe. But after the House refused to move any pro-gun legislation this year — and anti-gun Governor Mark Dayton ITCHING to sign a gun-control bill during

Why we ask for contributions

I couldn’t feel more sick for them. Last week, news broke on websites like Guns.com that the Oregon legislature passed a nasty gun-confiscation bill. Funded by Bloomberg and pushed by Gabby Gifford’s gun-control organizations, the law enables gun confiscation by declaration rather than adjudication. Specifically, it destroys a gun owner’s right to due process in the court of law by creating “extreme risk protection orders.” What this does is enables

Help Us Get Ready!

Thanks to the support of Minnesota Gun Rights’ members and supporters across this state, you and I had a good deal of success this legislative session. It wasn’t all good news, of course. The Minnesota House Leadership killed Constitutional Carry and failed to move on Stand-Your-Ground before the summer break. But in addition to standing strong against new gun control schemes, your action forcing passage of Stand-Your-Ground through the Rules

Constitutional Carry on the Move!

Texas legislators want to call a special session to pass it. North Carolina voted it through the House just last week. The Wisconsin State Senate had their first public hearing on it only two weeks ago. And gun owners in Michigan are making us look bad by passing it through committee and sending it to the House for a full vote soon. “It” is Constitutional Carry, and this legislation is
