A few days ago MGR got a call from one of our members telling us that he attended the popular Minnesota Renaissance Festival in Shakopee and was shocked to see it had a “No Guns Allowed” sign at their entrance.
I’ve attended the festival several times in the past but I’ve never seen that sign, so last weekend I decided to go myself and keep my eyes peeled!
When I got to the entrance on Saturday I couldn’t spot the sign anywhere. Problem was, I wasn’t looking high enough!

There, nearly TEN FEET up on a wall was the sign!
The Ren Fair board wants your money – but wants you and your family defenseless while spending time there.
One might ask why they don’t post signs that ban criminals or criminal activity? How about a sign prohibiting drug dealing? Or perhaps a sign prohibiting theft?
That criminals break laws and rules is pretty obvious to most folks.
But not to the festival administrators!
They prefer to ban folks like you and me – law-abiding, peaceful Americans fiercely partial to the right to defend one’s life – from defending ourselves and loved ones.
All I wanted to do was take my family to watch people in costumes reenact fighting against the tyrants of old…
… but the Festival management ended up recreating tyrannical laws of old by making folks sitting ducks for any madman who ignores their “no-guns allowed” sign!
So I tracked down a manager of the Festival and asked them why they’re discriminating against law-abiding citizens.

The manager I spoke to, Carl, said that their lawyers told them to put the signs up.
I reminded him that “gun free zones” (better termed “Criminal Safe Zones”) simply put everyone but the criminals at risk.
His response was to laugh in derision at law-abiding gun owners.
Worse, when I politely asked him to talk to his bosses at “Mid America Festivals” and relay our request that the signs come down, he adamantly refused!
Gun owners love to spend their money where their rights are appreciated, respected, and upheld – NOT laughed at!
You and I know how recently subhuman criminals have been targeting “gun-free zones”:
• July 23, Lafayette Grand Theater: John Russell Houser allegedly opened fire with a .40 caliber pistol, -Two women in the theater were killed and nine were wounded!
• July 16, Chattanooga: Mohammad Youssef Abdulazeez opened fire on two military locations–one a recruitment office, killing five and wounding three!
• June 17, Charleston: An insane madman named Dylann Roof murdered nine people in a church service in Charleston, SC.
That’s dozens of citizens killed or wounded in just the last couple months, all at “gun-free zones!”
Everybody knows the only way to protect you or your loved ones from a madman with a gun is with your own firearm.
Demand that they stop trampling out the rights of law-abiding gun owners and TAKE THE SIGNS DOWN!
But please don’t wait! Call them right away. That’s most important. (952)445-7361!
Minnesota Gun Rights
P.S. The Minnesota Renaissance Festival in Shakopee, MN proudly bans law-abiding gun owners from defending themselves and their families.
In fact, they have a sign hanging on the wall by the entrances banning guns entirely from the premises!
It’s no secret that criminals and madmen have a deadly history of targeting “Gun-Free Zones” to carry out their deadly crimes.
