Re: Revised NICS check and MN Permit To Carry

An FFL friend today showed me a letter from the ATF dated late October 2019 that stated that the MN P2C is again an exemption to the Federal NICS background check when purchasing a gun. If you have a MN P2C dated within the last 5 years, you no longer need to do a NICS check when purchasing from an...

Re: Fleet Farm drops "Assault Style Rifles"

I think it had more to do with his involvement with Huldra Arms and his interests as he was in charge of marketing, etc... It was nice while it lasted though I can recall ever seeing a really good gun deal there. That's an excellent observation. I don't recall ever seeing an AR of any other brand a...

Re: Question from a Texan

First off, thank you for the replies. While cost is a small part of the equation, other considerations are far more relevant to me. I don't mind paying a $100, especially if the county that I go to is very straightforward about their process. Frankly, patronage of a right-leaning county counts furt...

Re: Question about expanded background checks

Has anyone ever actually said how they would monitor private sales to enforce an expanded background check law? If it has been discussed, please point me in the right direction. Good people would comply, just because, but dirt bags will still sell without any worry? I'm having a hard time understan...

Re: Gun Talk on TPT Almanac 8/9/2019

Thanks for your kind words. One of my goals in any debate is to be the calm, polite, smiling one. Nancy did not foam at the mouth in this one as she had in previous debates. I thought the debate was fairminded. Mary Lahammer has been a very fair journalist on this issue - and I thought Eric did a go...

My Strib LTE re: BS column earlier in the week

I'm in today's Star Tribune with a Letter to the Editor exposing former Rep. Wes Skoglund's complete malarkey of a column earlier in the week that completely misrepresented existing Minnesota law. Minnesota law isn’t as restrictive on gun data as former legislator says In an Aug. 7 commentary (“Gun ...

Re: Trump calls for mental health & gun reforms after shooting

Question is, if public opinion, or at least reported public opinion, begins to suggest that RF and UBC are now popular, will we hold those legislators? Additionally, is anyone developing a plan to "do something " that doesn't include gun related regulations? Are there any general mental h...

Re: Trump calls for mental health & gun reforms after shooting

^^^^^^ I don't think we are going to have many politicians willing to oppose RF and UBC. We can either be in on the crafting of the legislation to make it somewhat better or scream "Shall not be infringed" and have it stuffed down our throats. The NRA is wounded right now and is going to ...

Minnesota Democratic Governor Tim Walz, Minnesota Democratic Congressman Dean Phillips are all in favor of more gun control. https://minnesota.cbslocal.com/2019/08/07/gun-control-supporters-to-rally-at-state-capitol-wednesday/ I doubt we thanked the gun rights advocates and Republican Senate Majori...

Re: Game Fair and Protect Minnesota

Well, I received a very prompt response from the organizers. He encourage I attend and be open to discussing my views with those I disagree with. Maybe I am just too much of a curmudgeon, but I just do not understand why an industry that needs guns to function, feels that they have to play nice wit...
