Last week, after seeing Representative Erik Paulsen’s name signed as a co-sponsor on a radical gun control bill in D.C., my jaw about hit the floor.
So I left our MGR headquarters in Northfield and drove up to his office in Eden Prairie to ask him what the heck is going on and why he’s betraying Minnesota gun owners.
Rep. Paulsen wasn’t there but I spoke with Alex, his legislative assistant, who told me point blank that Representative Erik Paulson is fully on board with this gun control… But assured us he’s still pro-Second Amendment.
More than that, Rep. Paulsen was on KSTP News a couple days earlier saying;
“I never heard of a ‘bump stock’ before… but we should absolutely be looking to make that illegal.”
I don’t know about you, but this is simply unacceptable!
I’ll give you the contact info for Representative Paulsen and I hope that you’ll contact him right away. More on that in a moment.
Some gun owners may be confused about what’s really going on in Washington D.C. right now, with HR 3999 being introduced last week.
Let me remind you once again, this bill, while purporting to be about ‘bump fire stocks,’ is about much more.
It’s the worst kept secret in D.C. that this bill is simply a Trojan Horse — an attempt to get a foot in the door — to pass through something larger.
That’s why it’s essential that pro-gun legislators in D.C. remain absolutely steadfast and fight tooth and nail to oppose any attempt at gun control, be that legislative or administrative.
We simply can’t give an inch.
That’s why I need you to contact Representative Paulsen’s office right now, and demand that he withdraw his support for a bump-fire ban immediately!
You can reach Representative Paulsen by:
>>> Sending him a message on his Facebook page;
>>> Calling his Eden Prairie office at (952)405-8510;
>>> Calling his D.C. office at (202)225-6351;
Don’t be surprised to hear a bunch of double-talk from Paulsen’s office.
When we talked to his staff they said, “Just because Representative Paulsen supports the idea of banning these stocks, doesn’t mean he’s not on our side 99% of the time.”
What kind of swamp are these staffers swimming in?
Rep. Paulsen either stands with gun owners in opposing any attempt to clamp down on our Second Amendment rights, or he doesn’t.
And don’t fall for the other ruse his office tried to use on us, which is that Rep. Paulsen opposes gun control, but supports regulatory changes via the ATF to ban these accessories.
That’s an obvious ploy to have his cake and be able to eat it too, by allowing him to have the same effect of passing a gun control bill while not having to go on the record.
Gun control — whether foisted on us through the legislative process or administrative process — needs to be seen for what it is and opposed by every gun owner in Minnesota!
The longer our ‘allies’ talk about giving in to the Feinstein/Pelosi gun-control bill, we are losing momentum on any chance of passing pro-gun legislation in D.C.
So please contact Representative Paulsen and insist that he reverse his course, and stand tall for gun owners by opposing any gun control of any kind!
And please make an emergency contribution to enable Minnesota Gun Rights to continue getting the word out to gun owners!
While our fight to advance gun rights is more visible during the legislative session, the work that we do goes on year round — and we need your help.
Whatever you do, please contact Representative Paulsen’s office right away!
Minnesota Gun Rights
P.S. Last week I spoke with Representative Erik Paulsen’s staff at his office in Eden Prairie where I was unashamedly told that Rep. Paulsen is in full support and has co-sponsored the D.C. gun-grabber’s ‘bump fire stocks’ ban…
Of course, as gun owners all know, this bill in D.C. has little to do with ‘bump fire stocks’ and everything to do with anti-gun legislators trying to condition pro-gun legislators to give ground after every mass shooting incident.
We can’t give an inch!
Please contact Representative Paulsen’s office immediately — using the information provided above — and insist that he oppose gun-control of any kind in D.C.!
