As a member of Minnesota Gun Rights, you’ve had a front row seat and played a direct role in defending and expanding our gun rights over the years.
You know that when we passed Stand-Your-Ground law through the House Public Safety and House Rules committees last session — that didn’t happen because of the good graces of the legislature.
Rather, it happened only after mobilized gun owners poured an avalanche of phone calls, emails and petitions into the Minnesota House and forced their hand.
And during the 2016 legislative session, the members and supports of MGR were solely responsible for stopping notoriously anti-gun Senator Ron Latz from forcing his Statewide Gun Registration scheme down our throats.
And that fall, Minnesota Gun Rights pulled out all the stops exposing weak anti-gun members of the Minnesota Senate, resulting in educated gun owners rising up and booting out Rod Skoe, Lyle Koenen and others and flipping the Senate majority!
You see, where most organizations try to appease politicians, Minnesota Gun Rights has always operated differently.
We still believe the legislature works for us, the people of Minnesota.
And so our approach is simple: insist the politicians vote the right way or expose them in their districts at election time if they do not!
This approach has been devastatingly effective in the last several election cycles as anti-gun legislators like Will Morgan, Joe Radinovich, Lyle Koenen, Rod Skoe and many others were booted from office by mobilized gun owners who were educated by Minnesota Gun Rights!
Now as we prepare to lead the charge on Stand-Your-Ground in 2018, and stop the wave of gun control coming our way, I’d like to personally invite you to attend a 1-day Political Training School that we’re hosting in Coon Rapids on Saturday, December 16!
This school is being hosted in conjunction with the Foundation for Applied Conservative Leadership and will teach you:
>>> How politics actually works, and why educating politicians about
your cause won’t result in change in St Paul;
>>> The greatest lie in politics, and how it can be used against you by
legislators if you’re not careful;
>>> Real-world leadership strategies for grassroots activists to ensure
that you don’t ‘get spun’ when you set foot in the Capitol;
>>> Effective lobby tactics for grassroots organizations that actually
>>> Practical tools on how you can run an election program of
your own as early as 2018, to hold politicians accountable for their
anti-gun votes; and
>>> How to start a political organization of your own and how to
raise the funds you need to be effective!
This training isn’t for those who want to complain or waste time talking about magical solutions that will never solve our problems in St Paul.
Rather, this is for serious activists who want to learn how to make their representatives in St Paul work for them — or learn the tools they need to hold them accountable!
The training will take place on Saturday, December 16, at the Coon Rapids American Legion Post 334 located at 11640 Crooked Lake Blvd NW in Coon Rapids.
The class will run from 10:00 am through 6:30pm and you’ll want to arrive a little bit early to get signed in and get a cup of coffee and a doughnut.
Registration for this event is $50 which will include a BBQ pork lunch but if you register between now and December 2 you can register for the reduced price of $40!
(Student rates are available for qualified students.)
2017 was a good start in the fight to advance the Second Amendment, but much work remains to be done.
This class will show you how to get directly involved in the fight for our gun rights — and I hope to see you there!
Minnesota Gun Rights
P.S. Effective grassroots activists always make the difference in the fight for the Second Amendment here in Minnesota!
That’s why I want to invite you to a special 1-day Political Leadership School that we are hosting — in conjunction with the Foundation for Applied Conservative Leadership — on Saturday, December 2, right here in Coon Rapids!
This school will cover a variety of topics and give you a front-row seat as we prepare to defend against an onslaught of gun control and push for Stand-Your-Ground in 2018.
I hope to see you there!
