Tuesday afternoon at our headquarters in Northfield I got a phone call from a gun owner in House District 15B. The caller told me that after reading our email from earlier that morning he called his representative, Jim Newberger, who is on the House Public Safety Committee, to urge him to do all he can to move HF309 out of his committee and into the Rules committee. He had spoken
When it comes to the Second Amendment, it can be easy to think we live in a vacuum here in Minnesota. We certainly share your frustration with House Leadership’s refusal to move substantive pro gun bills while at the same time allowing legislation that presents long-term obstacles for defending the Second Amendment. But politics runs on momentum, and that is never more true than when it comes to gun rights!
Minnesota House Leadership just killed Constitutional Carry. As you know, Minnesota Gun Rights along with our members and supporters, has been fighting hard to pass Constitutional Carry (HF309) in Minnesota. From our founding in 2013, restoring Constitutional Carry for gun owners has been one of our two primary policy objectives. And along the way, it’s been our mission to kill any attempts made at attacking the gun rights of our members
“Show us exactly where in HF1393 it moves the filing deadline back into April. Oh, you can’t? You must have been lied to.” That’s the story many anti-gun legislators are spinning to those of you who have called in opposition to HF1393. But they’re lying. Let me explain.

From bullying legislators and streamlining the committee process, to lying to gun owners and threatening to
We need your help now more than ever. House Leadership has scheduled a last-minute floor vote for TOMORROW in an attempt to cram DANGEROUS ID into law here in Minnesota – whether we like it or not. This bill is very bad news for gun owners. Please watch this urgent update from Political Director Ben Dorr and take IMMEDIATE action to oppose this anti-gun legislation.

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.

With the Minnesota State Legislature well underway — and State Representative Cal Bahr’s (R-East Bethel) introduction of Constitutional Carry in the State House — gun-grabbers are steaming mad. They know Constitutional Carry is on the march all over the country. They know this is the best opportunity Second Amendment supporters have had in years to GO ON THE OFFENSE with pro-gun reforms. And they’re worried that Minnesota — the state
“I keep hearing about Constitutional Carry – exactly what is it, and how does it restore our Second Amendment Rights?” We get questions like that literally every day from folks, whether they just signed up for our emails, just bought their first firearm or whether they just followed us on our Facebook page. That’s why I thought I’d take a moment here to explain what Constitutional Carry is and why
I’m a little concerned. My good friend, Minnesota Gun Rights Executive Director Chris Dorr, sent word to me that he hasn’t heard back from you regarding renewing your membership in Minnesota Gun Rights for 2017.
