Stand Up for Stand-Your-Ground in Minnesota!

As Lee County Deputy Dean Bardes lay flat on his back on the side of the interstate being pummeled to the point of near unconsciousness by Edward Strother, he begged an armed citizen who stopped to offer help to shoot the suspect. Seconds later, the vicious attack on Deputy Bardes was ended as Ashad Russell opened fire with his lawfully carried concealed pistol, striking Strother three times in the chest.

Minnesota Renaissance Festival Welcomes Criminals?

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

Minnesota State Fair: "Criminals Welcome Here?"

My eyes scanned every which way I could as I gave the attendant at entrance 5 my ticket to get into the State Fair, but my eyes couldn’t spot it. You see, Tuesday afternoon as I was driving through St. Paul I decided to check out the State Fair entrances to see whether or not the State Fair board was still in violation of Minnesota law (Stat. 624.714, subd 23)

Minnesota State Fair: The Next Target for a Mass Shooting?

Antonio Washington waited until the Craft Brewers Guild exhibit at the Minnesota State Fair closed for the day. The Minnesota State Fair had already unveiled their brazen so-called “Gun Free Zone” signs declaring lawful gun owners illegal, so Washington knew this was going to be easy. As an employee counted the earnings on that hot August night last year, Washington quietly slipped behind him. The thug pulled a gun, pointed

A Gun Owner Needs Your Help!

Imagine having to call your wife in the middle of the night to figure out how you can cough up enough money to cover a $25,000 bond to get out of jail – and having to tell her that you’re facing 10 years in the State Penitentiary and a fine of up to $150,000! This real life story is being played out right now by Brian Fletcher – a gun

Congress: Keith Ellison and Betty McCollum Sponsor Federal "Gun Buyback" Gun-Control

Minnesota Congressman Keith Ellison and Congresswoman Betty McCollum have introduced a gun-control bill in Congress called the “Safer Streets Act,” and they need to hear from you right away. More on that in a minute. Minnesota Gun Rights is busy day-in and day-out building the grassroots groundswell of support we need to pass critical and substantive pro-gun legislation in Minnesota. That includes important self-defense legislation like Stand-Your-Ground law. We believe,

Stand-Your-Ground Law Introduced in the MN House - But Who is Blocking It?

As Minnesota Gun Rights members know, MGR has been fighting tooth and nail to stop Senator Ron Latz’s Senate File 1289, the gun-control bill of the year. Minnesota Gun Rights staff and volunteers spent last week putting boots on the ground going house to house in Senator Latz’s district, exposing his treachery to his constituents to stop this bill cold before it impacts all of Minnesota. If passed, Senate File

Gun Control EXPANDING

Last week I warned you about a back-door gun-control bill that is trying to be snuck through the Minnesota Legislature by radical anti-gun Senator Ron Latz. As I reported to you at that time, sources indicated to me that Senator Latz was wanting to use this bill as a framework from which to launch a much more comprehensive attack against your Right to Keep and Bear Arms. Sadly, I was

Minnesota ALERT: Gun-Control Taking Shape!

Imagine sitting in your local health care provider’s office seeking treatment for a medical issue. As you’re about to leave, your healthcare provider aggressively pushes you to sign a form to declare yourself prohibited from owning firearms. Or imagine you’re confiding to your local pastor about some tensions in your marriage, and after receiving his counsel your pastor tells you that for the good of your family you should sign
