Re: MGR’s Plan for November
The November elections are rapidly approaching, and as you’ve seen on your television, all eyes are on Minnesota this year.
The radical left is hoping to destroy our Second Amendment freedoms and totally reshape Minnesota’s political landscape for years to come.
Aided by Michael Bloomberg — who has promised to spend MORE than $1,000,000 right here in Minnesota on digital ads attacking pro-gun candidates — this is a threat that we need to take 100% seriously!
These American-hating Communists have two goals.
First, they want to expand their control over the Minnesota House to guarantee they have the votes to pass gun control in 2023, even if they lose seats in some rural districts.
Second, they want to flip the Minnesota Senate chamber so they can begin to launch wave after wave of attacks against our gun rights in St Paul.
Any way you look at it, we’re going to be in the fight of our lives in just a few weeks!
The good news is, Minnesota Gun Rights is doing everything we can to hold off this impending gun control DISASTER.
In fact, our entire team has been working around the clock for days now, and we’ve just put the finishing touches on Minnesota Gun Rights’ critical 2022 Plan for November.
I believe it’s absolutely crucial you review it right away.
And with time running out, I’m counting on your generous financial support to help put this plan into action.
NOTE: THE DETAILS OF THIS PLAN ARE HIGHLY CONFIDENTIAL. IT’S VERY IMPORTANT THAT ONLY MINNESOTA GUN RIGHTS’ MEMBERS AND SUPPORTERS EVER SEE COPIES OF THIS PROPOSAL!
As you’ll see, I’ve budgeted $120,400 to put Minnesota Gun Rights Plan for November into action.
Subtracting money already allocated for this program, we still must raise $78,900 between now and October 16 to launch the full program.
I know that may sound steep — but it pales in comparison to what Michael Bloomberg and other leftist organizations are spending as they try to destroy Minnesota this Fall!
And with time running out, I need to hear from you as soon as possible!
>>> HELP MGR HOLD THE LINE! <<<
Without your support, I’m afraid the gun-grabbers could very well get their way.
I can’t begin to explain what a DISASTER that would be in Washington, D.C., and right here in St Paul!
Instead of fighting to pass Stand-Your-Ground law or Constitutional Carry, our backs will be against the wall, fighting relentlessly to STOP a gun-control onslaught.
With thousands of paid protestors flooding our state capitol grounds — and KARE 11, the Minneapolis Star Tribune, and the rest of the FAKE NEWS openly cheerleading the DESTRUCTION of our Second Amendment freedoms –- a Minnesota legislature bought and paid for with Bloomberg’s money will move to ram through their entire radical agenda, including:
*** A total BAN on AR-15s and hundreds of similar firearms that tens of thousands of Minnesotans keep in their homes and businesses as protection against criminals and tyrants alike.
*** Implementation of ‘Red Flag Gun Seizure’ legislation, which would allow liberal court judges to seize your guns based on the words of an angry ex in secret court hearings that you won’t be able to attend.
*** A statewide registry of every gun owner in Minnesota under the guise of ‘Universal Background Checks.’ This legislation would make FELONS out of Minnesotans who pass their firearms on to their children and grandchildren and would set the stage for future gun confiscation, as we’ve seen in many countries like Australia!
*** Passage of S.F. 3377/3378 by Senator John Marty. Barely held off this year, this legislation would totally destroy our gun rights by outlawing ALL semi-automatic firearms, limiting magazine size, mandating government-inspected firearms storage, physical tests for firearms ownership, and much, MUCH more!
Sadly, I’m afraid to even all this may not be the end of it.
The Right to own firearms in America is the one freedom that protects all the others – without it our nation will be on its knees – and the one reason the Left wants to pass gun control is so that they can totally disarm their political opposition!
There are so many races all over our state where Minnesota’s gun owners can make a difference, including:
>>> House District 54A.
Erik Mortensen is the state’s LEADING supporter of gun rights and sponsor of Stand-Your-Ground law and other pro-gun bills, is being attacked by Brad Tabke, a vicious opponent of Stand-Your-Ground law who voted yes on EVERY gun control bill in 2019 and 2020.
>>> Senate District 10.
Nathan Wesenberg is a huge supporter of gun owners and has promised, in writing, to champion the Second Amendment in St Paul as well as sponsor and FORCE VOTES on major pro-gun bills like Constitutional Carry! He’s going up against a radical gun-grabber who is hellbent on keeping up Minneapolis’ violent trend.
>>> Congressional District 2.
Congresswoman Angie Craig is desperate to win reelection so she can continue her attacks on gun owners by introducing bills that would track, trace, and register gun owners like sex offenders and pass Red Flag Gun Confiscation Orders as well!
And, of course, this is just a taste of the other highly competitive House and Senate races that MGR is hoping to go to work in, exposing anti-gun radicals who spent their time in office attacking our gun rights!
That’s why Minnesota Gun Rights is not going to pull any punches as we head into the last weeks leading up to the November elections.
In fact, I’ve put together a four-part plan to expose these gun grabbers using every tool at our disposal, including:
1) A combination of our hard-hitting digital ads and our aggressive ‘Whiteboard Videos’ where we break down the anti-gun records that dozens of elected gun grabbers are trying to keep secret.
2) A two-phase hard-hitting mail program that will give gun owners page after page of facts on where the candidates stand. We’ll provide survey results, voting histories, bill numbers, and more.
3) An Internet, phone and email blitz hammering Bloomberg’s candidates over their support for gun control.
4) A hard-hitting radio (and perhaps even TV ad campaign) hitting Michael Bloomberg’s top allies in Minnesota for their support of radical gun control!
But I need your help to put our plan into action.
As I mentioned, time is running out and we still must raise $78,900!
>>> JOIN US IN THE FIGHT FOR FREEDOM! <<<
Won’t you please agree to make a generous gift of $200 to help us put it into action?
Whatever you can give, please agree to help IMMEDIATELY.
The 2022 elections are going to be absolutely critical.
The good news is that the no-holds-barred tactics MGR uses are renowned for exposing gun-grabbers at election time, with devastatingly effective results. We can save our state, but we must act fast!
I’m chomping at the bit to launch this program. But I can’t do it without your support.

Minnesota Gun Rights
2022 Plan for Victory and Budget
Goal: FIGHT LIKE HELL TO SAVE OUR SECOND AMENDMENT FREEDOMS BY EXPOSING BLOOMBERG’S HAND-PICKED CANDIDATES!
Mail Program in Targeted Districts Cost: $42,000
A series of two hard-hitting survey results letters informing approximately 131,000 pro-gun grassroots patriots in targeted districts how their candidates responded to the MGR survey. Letters begin hitting the week of October 24. They will hit through November 7.
Internet, Phone, and Email Program Cost: $24,500
Host all candidates’ survey responses on MGR’s Facebook and pay for statewide Internet ads urging Minnesota gun owners to see where their candidates stand on Second Amendment issues. Pay for a series of five emails – including three deploys to a statewide pro-Second Amendment prospect list – and two rounds of exposing the records of anti-gun politicians.
Earned Media Program Cost: $13,600
Work talk-radio call-in lines, write op-eds and letters to the editor, host media interviews, and work highly trafficked political blogs to inform as many Minnesotans as possible about their candidates’ positions on the Second Amendment.
Paid Media Program Cost: $39,900
Run hard-hitting digital ads, radio, and even TV ads if MGR has the resources, and ensure that every gun owner in over a dozen districts learns the truth about where Bloomberg’s hand-picked candidates stand. Using social media, we can micro-target our ads down to individual city blocks!
Program Cost: $120,400
(Less money raised) ($41,500)
Total Outstanding Budget: $78,900
