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
(This is the third and final installment of our legislative wrap up series. If you missed the first two segments, you can find it by scrolling to the bottom of this email.) The Fight Is On For Stand-Your-Ground As you read in part two of our series, House “leadership” gave the order to kill Constitutional Carry in the House Public Safety Committee back in March. But thanks to an enormous

Part Two: Constitutional Carry Law Heats Up Once the 2017 legislative session gaveled in, Minnesota Gun Rights worked with newly elected Representative Cal Bahr to introduce House File 309, Constitutional Carry. And then we turned to you, grassroots gun owners across
As the dust settles on the close of the 2017 legislative session, it’s a great time to look back and see what was accomplished in our fight to defend and advance the Second Amendment here in Minnesota. Obviously, we got Constitutional Carry introduced and went to war for Stand-Your-Ground law and a whole lot more — but that didn’t just happen on its own! In this three part series, we’re
Early yesterday morning the Special Session of the Minnesota Legislature adjourned. Thanks to Speaker Daudt, House Majority Leader Peppin and the rest of the leadership team, not a single gun bill made it to the floor of the House for a vote this session. It was crystal clear as I sat in the House gallery and watched Speaker Daudt slam the gavel down and adjourn sine die, that he was
At midnight tonight the 2017 session of the Minnesota Legislature will adjourn. That means you have just a few more hours to burn down your Rep’s phone line and DEMAND they bring Stand-Your-Ground to the House floor for a vote, even in this final hour. To find out who represents you – Go Here. MGR staff is headed to the capitol today to make sure that everything that can be
We are almost out of time. The legislature adjourns in just 3 days, and House Leadership is digging in its heels and refusing to pass Stand-Your-Ground law. If we’re going to see HF238 passed out of the House this session, we need all hands on deck! Insiders are telling us that the legislature may hold floor session on Saturday and Sunday this week in order to “get their work done
You’re not going to believe this. I just got off the phone with Speaker Daudt’s office and I’m afraid I have some alarming news for you. While I was not able to get the Speaker on the phone, I did ask his spokesperson why on earth Stand-Your-Ground isn’t being scheduled for a vote in the House? Instead of giving a straight answer, the Speaker’s staff went on and on about
The clock is running out fast and the legislature just isn’t getting the message. As you know, Minnesota Gun Rights relies on grassroots pressure to advance or defeat legislation in the Capitol and to hold legislators accountable at election time. With your help, anti-gun incumbents like Rod Skoe, Lyle Koenen, Will Morgan and many more have been booted from office by mobilized gun owners over the past few election cycles.
Good news! Only hours ago, with MGR staff looking on, the House Rules Committee voted to pass HF238 out of their committee and onto the General Register! That means that Stand-Your-Ground is now ready to be put on the floor of the House for full debate and passage. Make no mistake about it, the only reason this bill was ever brought forward in the Rules committee was because of YOU.
