The end of the year is right around the corner, and the legislature will reconvene in just a few weeks. But we still haven’t received your membership renewal for 2022!
If you’ve already renewed your support online, via text or through the mail — and our records just haven’t updated fast enough — I hope you’ll accept my apologies for this unnecessary reminder.
But if you haven’t had the time to renew your membership for 2022, I hope that you’ll take a moment to do so IMMEDIATELY, as gun owners in Minnesota are facing massive threats to our freedoms next year!
Biden’s legislative gun control agenda has been stalled in Congress for the moment but that could change in the blink of an eye, especially if we — God forbid — see another mass shooting in 2022. But for the moment, our grassroots pressure is working.
But grassroots pressure in Congress will not stop Biden’s Executive Orders, which are designed to make criminals out of law-abiding gun owners like you and me!
Biden’s first unconstitutional Executive Order would make FELONS out of gun owners who have unregistered firearms that they made themselves. Known as ‘80% lowers,’ these firearms are wildly popular with gun owners who enjoy making everything from Colt 1911’s to Ruger 10/22’s in their own homes.
The second order, which will likely take effect in early 2022, would make FELONS out of anyone who owns a pistol brace!
Pistol braces were designed for disabled shooters who can’t lift a full-sized rifle anymore, but who can handle a pistol. Attaching a pistol brace around the handgun makes it far more controllable and safer for any gun owner to operate.
Banning pistol braces and registering ‘80% lower’ firearms has absolutely nothing to do with stopping violent crime. These orders exist exclusively to allow our tyrannical government to have more ways to criminalize law abiding gun owners!
And make no mistake, these orders are just the beginning.
That’s why Minnesota Gun Rights is going ‘all in’ on the Second Amendment Preservation Act (SAPA) next year in St Paul!
You may have heard about Second Amendment sanctuary resolutions at the state or county level before. But while these are well-meaning, there is no force of law behind these resolutions, and they simply don’t work.
MGR’s Second Amendment Preservation Act is very different. Once SAPA law is passed, Minnesota’s troopers, deputies, and city officers would be instructed to only enforce Minnesota laws pertaining to firearms, ammo, and accessories.
In other words, SAPA law would mean that Minnesota cops wouldn’t lift a finger to enforce federal gun control laws (or Executive Orders) anymore.
And since the federal government relies on state and local authorities to enforce the vast majority of their laws and Executive Orders, the Second Amendment Preservation Act would effectively STOP Biden’s war on gun owners here in Minnesota!
In fact, SAPA law is ALREADY protecting gun owners in Missouri!
You see, earlier this year our sister organization in Missouri enacted SAPA legislation. And while anti-gun mayors in liberal cities like St. Louis and Kansas City were livid about it, they had to order their police departments to stop enforcing federal gun laws.
That’s because Missouri’s SAPA law, just like the legislation we are pushing in St Paul, has real teeth.
If the St. Louis police department violates Missouri’s SAPA law and enforces Biden’s Executive Orders banning pistol braces, for example, their agency can be sued in civil court by the gun owner involved. And the minimum fine — per occurrence — is $50,000!
Sure, it makes some big city police chiefs furious. But the truth is that while Minnesota’s law enforcement community is very pro-gun at an individual level, as a political entity, they are not.
Law enforcement lobbyists like Bloomington Sheriff Jeff Potts and Dakota County’s Tim Leslie are front and center in St Paul, pushing for confiscating firearms via ‘Red Flag Gun Confiscation’ laws and many other gun control bills.
Clearly any SAPA law that passes without teeth would simply be ignored.
Biden and his handlers know that if SAPA spreads across the country, their dreams of bypassing Congress and attacking our Second Amendment rights through Executive Orders will evaporate!
That’s why the Department of InJustice tried to overturn SAPA in court last month. But the judge in the case laughed them out of the courtroom because the Supreme Court has always held that the states have the right to decide what’s in the best interest of its citizens.
The radical left can cry foul all they want, but their Democrat-run cities and states did the same thing to President Trump when he tried to get their help in deporting violent, illegal aliens.
If the left was able to assert states’ right to ignore the federal government and protect illegal aliens charged with rape and murder, then Minnesota damn sure can assert our sovereignty and protect Minnesotans who are being threatened with tyrannical gun control edicts!
But passing SAPA is going to be a major fight. We all know that.
And if helping us go on OFFENSE and fight for SAPA in St Paul isn’t enough of a reason for you to renew your Minnesota Gun Rights membership, I hope you know just how serious of a threat we are still facing in Congress.
You see, a rational President would look at the results of the Virginia elections last month and realize that the American people are furious. And he would acknowledge that without a course correction, his party will be crushed in the 2022 midterm elections.
But Joe Biden is not a rational President.
He and his handlers are cultural Marxists, hell-bent on destroying this country. So rather than retreat from his far-left ideology, Biden has made it clear that he’s going to do everything he can to pass gun control in 2022, while his party still controls Congress!
There are three primary gun control bills that Biden is going ‘all in’ on next year that demand our complete attention. They are:
1. The ‘assault weapons ban’ (S.736/H.R. 1808) — which would make it a felony for anyone in America to buy an AR-15 or any one of over 200 similar rifles and shotguns!
These firearms stand guard against criminals and tyrants in the homes of approximately 20 million American citizens, a final check on a tyrannical government. If we lose these firearms, the American people will become sitting ducks.
2. A ‘national firearms registry’ (S. 529/H.R. 8) -– which would make felons out of anyone who transfers a firearm to another person without obtaining government permission and putting that transfer into a federal government database!
There’s only one reason why the federal government would want a database of gun owners, and we all know what that is. This bill has already passed the House with bi-partisan support and is building support in the Senate.
3. ‘Red Flag Gun Seizure’ legislation (S. 1819/H.R. 2377) –- which would absolutely destroy the Second Amendment in this country by letting liberal judges order the confiscation of your firearms before you’ve been convicted of a crime!
As you may know, these court hearings happen in total secrecy. You would not be given the chance to defend your name until it’s all over, after your guns have been seized.
Passing any one of these bills would deal a crushing blow to the freedoms of the American people and pave the road for flat out gun confiscation in the years to come.
And if passing these bills into law costs Biden control of Congress in 2022, that’s a price that the Left is willing to pay — just like they did in 2010 with ObamaCare — as part of their long-term strategy to disarm and subjugate the American people.
The fact is, bills just like these are alive in the Minnesota legislature as well, being pushed by Governor Tim Walz, Senator Ron Latz and Speaker Hortman and we have to FIGHT to stop them too!
That’s why it’s essential that Minnesota Gun Rights continue to FLOOD our state AND federal politicians with calls and emails from gun owners across the state, so they know that if they push these bills, it will cost them their majorities in 2022!
This won’t just happen on its own.
MGR needs to roll out a massive direct mail program, increase the size of our email mobilization efforts, and run the most aggressive radio/digital ads we can possibly produce to make sure that our representatives in St Paul and D.C. understand what we expect of them.
And if giving us the resources we need to hold the line on Tim Walz’ and Joe Biden’s attempt to crush our Second Amendment rights isn’t enough for you to renew your membership, don’t forget about the critical 2022 elections that are already coming into focus here in Minnesota.
Most gun rights organizations beg politicians to do the right thing during the legislative season, and then just mope on the sidelines if the politicians ignore them and vote for gun control.
Not Minnesota Gun Rights.
The reason why we’ve stopped EVERY gun control bill in Minnesota over the last nine years is because the politicians in St Paul –- and in Washington — know that MGR loves to expose gun-grabbers in targeted districts at election time!
And 2022 is going to be a jam-packed election cycle with the Governor’s mansion, every seat in the Minnesota House, and every seat of the Minnesota Senate up for grabs.
Not only that, but gun owners will also have a chance to tell politicians like Angie Craig what we think of her support for Nancy Pelosi’s war on gun owners in Congress. It’s clear that 2022 will be an extremely important year.
Minnesota Gun Rights MUST continue to do what we’ve done for almost a decade now — take the fight for freedom to the enemies’ districts in the fall, making sure they pay the price for every vote they’ve ever cast in support of gun control!
Any way you look it, 2022 is going to be one of the most pivotal years in memory when it comes to our gun rights between fighting for SAPA, holding the line against Walz/Biden’s agenda, and making sure we have the resources to expose gun-grabbers during the elections.
But to do any of this, I need to be able to pay for it!
Some Minnesotans have renewed as Liberty, Freedom or Patriot level members and others have made the very deep commitment to become Lifetime members of Minnesota Gun Rights!
The choice is yours.
Again, the amount of your renewal is up to you, just please act fast!
Your past support of Minnesota Gun Rights has enabled us to build a massive roadblock in St Paul when nobody thought it was possible, stalling, stopping and blocking every gun control bill that the DFL and RINOs threw at us for the last decade.
Not only that, but we’ve exposed the anti-gun records that gun-grabbers have desperately tried to hide in the last 4 election cycles, watching leftists like Tim Faust, Will Morgan, Lyle Koenen and many others lose their seats of power in St Paul to angry gun owners at the ballot box!
But everything is on the line in 2022. And the actions that we take next year will likely decide if our grandchildren grow up in a country that is still the ‘land of the free’ — or a socialist regime where only the government has guns.
This is it. The fight is upon us.
Minnesota Gun Rights
P.S. In just a few weeks, Minnesota Gun Rights will be engaged in a massive fight to advance the Second Amendment Preservation Act in St Paul, while simultaneously working to crush Tim Walz and Biden’s gun control agendas!
If we lose these fights — and the radical left is able to pass any of their gun control next year — then the freest nation on earth will begin a quick slide into tyranny and darkness.
We must fight back and stop them!
