The news was like a punch in the gut.
As I’ve been warning you for weeks now, BILLIONAIRE anti-gun activist Michael Bloomberg and his anti-gun pals in the Minnesota Senate have launched an all-out arm-twisting campaign to browbeat Senators on BOTH sides of the aisle to support Senator Ron Latz’s (D-St. Louis Park) so-called “Universal Background Checks” Bill.
With the report that Senators Scott Jenson (R-Chaska) and Paul Anderson (R-Plymouth) have caved to anti-gun pressure — backing Senator Latz’s bill — gun-grabbers believe the Senate is set to rubber-stamp this outrageous scheme!
Site, this is an all-out EMERGENCY.
That’s why I’m counting on you to please sign and submit your petition IMMEDIATELY.
As you’ll see, this petition insists that your State Senator votes “NO!” on any scheme to implement so-called “Universal Background Checks” in Minnesota.
The truth is, as I’ve told you time and again, “Universal Background Checks” is nothing more than the Gun Control Lobby’s code words for STATEWIDE GUN REGISTRATION.
“Universal Background Checks” require a government-approved check for every firearm and even ammunition transfer.
That means letting a buddy borrow your old pump shotgun for a day of hunting could be ILLEGAL without first going through a “check.”
So would handing down a hunting rifle that’s been a family heirloom for generations.
Widows could be turned into instant FELONS upon their husband’s death.
But as bad as all that is, it might not even be the worst of it.
You see, the ONLY way such a scheme could be enforced is if the state government keeps records of every gun and gun owner in the state.
That’s REGISTRATION, plain and simple.
And as you and I both know, registration is just the first step toward outright CONFISCATION.
That’s the sinister motivation behind this scheme.
Gun-grabbers know it won’t do anything to stop crime.
Bloodthirsty thugs who don’t think twice about committing rape or murder don’t think twice about stealing firearms either.
And just how effective has government been at keeping illegal drugs out of our neighborhoods? How effective have they been at keeping out illegal immigrants?
Do you and I think for a second they’ll do any better keeping illegal guns out of the hands of the bad guys?
Neither do I.
All this scheme will do is create more hurdles for law-abiding citizens to keep and bear arms — the one thing that can actually stop mass shootings like the one we recently saw in Florida.
Then, when all the gun-grabbers’ schemes — from “Gun Free Zone” stickers to “Universal Background Checks” — fail to stop the next killer, you and I both know what the Gun Control Lobby’s next step will be.
They’ll say the only option is to start seizing guns from law-abiding citizens!
The bad news is, our backs are against the wall today.
Gun-grabbers are convinced they have the votes in the Senate to RAM so-called “Universal Background Checks” through.
Governor Dayton, in his State of the State address promised to sign ANY gun-control bill “the minute it hits my desk!”
While we have a few allies in the State House, stopping it there is NO guarantee – especially after the weak showing in the gun-control committee hearings a couple weeks ago.
Politicians hate outraged constituents.
So if we can turn up the heat quickly enough, we may be able to peel off enough nervous Senators’ votes to stop it.
But even if we can’t stop it in the Senate, it will show House members the kind of intense political pain they’ll have to deal with from Second Amendment supporters if they even think about stabbing us in the back.
Second, please agree to your most generous contribution to help Minnesota Gun Rights DEFEAT Senator Ron Latz’s so-called “Universal Background Check” Bill.
Your financial support will help Minnesota Gun Rights launch a massive four-part plan to answer the gun-grabbers, including:
With this battle likely to move with lightning speed, this kind of last-minute program isn’t going to be cheap.
But if you and I don’t fight back, this could be the beginning of the end for our Second Amendment freedoms in Minnesota.
That’s why — in addition to signing your petition — please consider giving more than you’ve given in the past, perhaps $250 or even $500 if you can.
As I mentioned, Site, this is an emergency. Our backs are against the wall.
The only choices are to fight back like we never have before or stand there and get pummeled.
Minnesota Gun Rights is going to FIGHT.
But we’re counting on you.
With so much on the line, your support could make a world of difference.
Minnesota Gun Rights
P.S. After arm-twisting succeeded in flipping two Republican Senators to support Senator Ron Latz’s so-called “Universal Background Check” (AKA STATEWIDE GUN REGISTRATION) Bill, gun-grabbers believe the Senate is set to rubber stamp this outrageous scheme.
