You’d hardly know our supposed Second Amendment allies control both houses of the State Legislature in St. Paul these days.
After the recent horrors in Texas and Las Vegas, gun-grabbers believe the 2018 elections are all but “in the bag.”
The gun-grabbers’ chief ringleader in the State Senate, Ron Latz (D-St. Louis Park) continues to push for massive new gun control schemes, convinced he can cobble together enough votes from both sides of the aisle to RAM gun control into law.
BILLIONAIRE gun-grabbers like Michael Bloomberg and George Soros are ready to pull out all the stops to install another of their allies in our Governor’s Mansion in 2018 and seize control of the Minnesota State House.
Site, with the gun-grabbers’ deep pockets and anti-gun media elites going all-out to drive up anti-gun hysteria — I’m more concerned than ever.
But I also know you and I have stood up to the gun-grabbers and DEFEATED them time and again.
So I’m counting on your action once again today.
As you’ll see, I’ve included a link for you to renew your membership in Minnesota Gun Rights for 2018.
More on that below.
But first, I must be blunt.
The coming year promises to be an absolutely CRUCIAL year for our gun rights — especially after the events of Sutherland Springs and Las Vegas.
And I need all hands on deck.
The good news is, we haven’t seen the pro-Second Amendment majorities we have today in St. Paul in years.
And everyone knows those majorities wouldn’t exist without Second Amendment supporters.
Sadly, our supposed allies in legislative leadership have yet to deliver for us as Second Amendment supporters delivered for them in 2016.
While we will continue to remain vigilant against anti-gun attacks, advancing Stand-Your-Ground law will remain Minnesota Gun Rights’ top legislative priority in 2018.
If passed, the Minnesota Stand-Your-Ground Bill would simply state that law-abiding Minnesota gun owners can defend themselves against criminal attack without fear of being targeted by an anti-gun prosecutor.
Under Stand-Your-Ground law, law-abiding gun owners would:
1) No longer face a so-called “duty to retreat.” In a situation where your life is
on the line, the LAST thing you want to be thinking about is whether or not
you have retreated far enough before you defend yourself;
2) Receive criminal immunity from anti-gun prosecutors. In other words, no
more anti-gun prosecutors trying to make an example of you — or taking a
case to court to make a political statement;
3) Receive civil immunity. That means the money-grubbing family of some
thug you had to defend yourself against can’t come after you in court and
sue you for millions.
Without each piece of this three-legged stool — which Minnesotans DO NOT currently enjoy — those who defend themselves are effectively sitting ducks.
Now’s the time to get the job done.
The fact is, we desperately need Stand-Your-Ground law in Minnesota.
Guns and Ammo Magazine reports that there are only 11 states with worse gun laws than Minnesota! And our lack of a Stand-Your-Ground law is a big reason why.
The good news is, just forcing votes puts you and me in a win/win situation.
Either we pass Stand-Your-Ground law now, or we EXPOSE gun-grabbers in both houses of the Minnesota State Legislature.
When exposed, the Gun Control Lobby’s allies go down in flames at the ballot box — just like we saw here in Minnesota in 2014 and 2016.
Even if Governor Dayton vetoes, it will only guarantee that Stand-Your-Ground law becomes one of the top issues in our 2018 Governor’s race — which is the LAST thing the Gun Control Lobby wants, no matter how emboldened they seem after the Texas and Las Vegas killings.
But with the State House and our Governor’s Mansion up for grabs, you and I have to start preparing now.
BILLIONAIRE anti-gun activists like Michael Bloomberg and George Soros believe Minnesota is ripe for a takeover, so they’re likely to unload throughout the 2018 election year.
If the “experts’” predictions about 2018 are right, the political winds will be blowing against us.
Needless to say, they’ve been wrong before (just consider 2016!), but I’m not taking anything for granted.
That’s why I’m prepared to conduct the biggest and baddest election year program in Minnesota Gun Rights’ history in 2018 if I can raise the resources.
That means mail, email, targeted Social Media, and even hard-hitting radio and online ads to ensure Minnesota Second Amendment supporters know the TRUTH about where their candidates stand on critical gun rights issues.
Of course, none of the plans I have for 2018 are going to be cheap.
So as you renew your membership for 2018, I hope you’ll agree to stretch and give more than you’ve done in the past.
In a world where politicians and organizations will often promise the world and deliver nothing, I couldn’t be more proud of the real results Minnesota Gun Rights’ members and supporters have been able to accomplish.
Thanks to your action and support, we’re turning Minnesota politics on its head, defeating Michael Bloomberg’s anti-gun schemes, holding his allies accountable and putting ourselves in position where passage of Stand-Your-Ground law is possible.
But none of it would be possible without your consistent support.
The truth is, you’re a critical part of Minnesota Gun Rights’ winning team.
So when you renew your membership in Minnesota Gun Rights, please consider “digging deep,” and renew your membership in the amount of:
You’ve seen the impact your support can make with some BIG wins against Bloomberg’s attacks and the gun-grabbers’ election year schemes.
Now, I’m counting on you to help keep this winning streak going in 2018 by making Stand-Your-Ground law a reality and helping us prepare the biggest Candidate Survey Program in Minnesota Gun Rights’ history in 2018.
As always, the amount you choose is up to you.
Your support will make all the difference in the critical year ahead.
