Legislative Primary Election Voter Guide!

2022 MGR Legislative Primary Voter Guide

The candidates gun owners pick in the August 9th legislative primary election – the majority of which will go on to victory in the November elections and represent us in St Paul – mean more today than it ever has in our lifetimes.

America, and Minnesota, are at a cultural crossroads, a crossroads which many civilizations and cultures have been at before.

As a nation and as a state, which direction we go from here can spiral quickly into Communism, death and destruction for our culture on the one hand, or we can skyrocket back to a free, Constitutional Republic on the other.

One of the quickest ways for the Hate-America Left to undo our country is to topple the mighty Second Amendment, which stands as a bulwark against lawless tyrants achieving total power.

We know that, here at Minnesota Gun Rights. That’s why we exist.

And who gun owners pick on August 9th to be their Republican nominees will very likely determine the fate of gun bills that will have massive ramifications on Minnesota:

  • Will massive policy gains like the Second Amendment Preservation Act, Constitutional Carry and Stand-your-Ground laws get passed into law or tossed in the trash?
  • Will 2023 be the year that the anti-gun RINOS in St Paul complete their betrayal and join with the Marxist Democrats to pass Red Flag Gun Confiscation laws?

These questions will be answered on August 9th, because these primaries will decide if we are going to have FIGHTERS for freedom or total RINOs and gun-grabbing Democrats in St Paul.

There’s a lot on the line in this election. I know it, you know it, everybody knows it.

But the good news is, in many districts, gun owners can make MAXIMUM impact at the polls on August 9th.

That’s why it is so important that you find out if candidates running to represent YOU in St Paul have filled out our Minnesota Gun Rights Candidate Questionnaire or not.

(Find out what legislative districts you live in by clicking here.)

We asked each of the candidates a series of 10 questions regarding our gun rights that they will face if elected.

If you see one of your candidates listed above out on the campaign trail, THANK THEM for being 100% pro-gun!

But, if a candidate in your district is not listed above and you see them out on the campaign trail, make sure you tell them to apologize to gun owners for refusing to answer the MGR candidate survey and hiding their positions from gun owners.

Last, but not least, please share this information with all of your friends and family so they can make an informed decision at the polls on August 9th!

And whatever you do, go vote PRO-GUN on Tuesday!

For Minnesota,
