The Fight Is On For Stand-Your-Ground As you read in part two of our series, House “leadership” gave the order to kill Constitutional Carry in the House Public Safety Committee back in March. But thanks to an enormous

Part Two: Constitutional Carry Law Heats Up Once the 2017 legislative session gaveled in, Minnesota Gun Rights worked with newly elected Representative Cal Bahr to introduce House File 309, Constitutional Carry. And then we turned to you, grassroots gun owners across
As the dust settles on the close of the 2017 legislative session, it’s a great time to look back and see what was accomplished in our fight to defend and advance the Second Amendment here in Minnesota. Obviously, we got Constitutional Carry introduced and went to war for Stand-Your-Ground law and a whole lot more — but that didn’t just happen on its own! In this three part series, we’re
At midnight tonight the 2017 session of the Minnesota Legislature will adjourn. That means you have just a few more hours to burn down your Rep’s phone line and DEMAND they bring Stand-Your-Ground to the House floor for a vote, even in this final hour. To find out who represents you – Go Here. MGR staff is headed to the capitol today to make sure that everything that can be
We are almost out of time. The legislature adjourns in just 3 days, and House Leadership is digging in its heels and refusing to pass Stand-Your-Ground law. If we’re going to see HF238 passed out of the House this session, we need all hands on deck! Insiders are telling us that the legislature may hold floor session on Saturday and Sunday this week in order to “get their work done

With your help, anti-gun incumbents like Rod Skoe, Lyle Koenen, Will Morgan and many more have been booted from office by mobilized gun owners over the past few election cycles.
Good news! Only hours ago, with MGR staff looking on, the House Rules Committee voted to pass HF238 out of their committee and onto the General Register! That means that Stand-Your-Ground is now ready to be put on the floor of the House for full debate and passage. Make no mistake about it, the only reason this bill was ever brought forward in the Rules committee was because of YOU.
Great news! Thanks to the avalanche of your calls, emails, and Facebook messages to the House Rules committee demanding a hearing and vote on Stand-Your-Ground (HF238), a vote has finally been scheduled. The hearing and scheduled vote is set for Monday, May 15 at 11:00am. But now is NOT the time to back down or relax. Right now we need to pour on the pressure like never before to make
The fight for Stand-Your-Ground legislation is white hot in St Paul! Please click on this link or the image below to watch an urgent update from our Director. As you saw in the video above, after your relentless calls and emails to the members of the Rules Committee, it seems crystal clear that if Stand-Your-Ground (HF238) comes before the Rules Committee for a vote, we have enough support to pass
