Re: Minnesota Gun Control Hearings Friday Feb 3rd

Are there ANY Democrats against these new laws? (Maybe I should also ask are there any Republicans FOR these new laws?) P.S. I did see some of this on the news and I'd like to thank MN Gun Caucus for their efforts, especially for Rev. Tim Christopher to the podium. No GOP will support these laws fr...

Re: Minnesota Gun Control Hearings Friday Feb 3rd

Rob Doar worked his ass off on getting the ACLU to come out against these bills - their letter and written testimony was outstanding.

Re: Minnesota Gun Control Hearings Friday Feb 3rd

We're posting video of our testimony, key questions, and other discussions from the hearing on Facebook and Twitter throughout the weekend. Some bills will head to Ways an...

Re: Minnesota Gun Control Hearings Friday Feb 3rd

For those of you coming, we have State Capitol 317 reserved from 8am - 10am - you can grab a free Caucus t-shirt and rally sign if you can't get into the hearing or just want to be there and don't want to stand in line.

Thanks,
Bryan

Re: Minnesota Gun Control Hearings Friday Feb 3rd

Will there be much standing involved waiting for seating tickets? I'm considering coming, but my bum leg won't allow me to stand in line long. We expect hundreds tomorrow and there's limited seating in the hallways, that might be a challenge. There will be overflow rooms w/ seating, and you're welc...

Re: Minnesota Gun Control Hearings Friday Feb 3rd

I sent the usual email opposing, for what little it's worth. Who is going to be there to counter the banners? I might sign up to attend but I'm unsure what I could personally testify to. We've arranged the opposition testimony and there will be a decent amount of brief public testimony as well. Bryan

Re: Mayor Carter wants more 'Gun Free' zones

Thank you bstrawse. I sincerely appreciate your efforts (and have backed this up with a check to your organization in the past). But it seems like the anti-gun folk don't CARE about what's legal and what is not. They just want what they want. New York is a prime example. Their anti-gun law was decl...

Re: Mayor Carter wants more 'Gun Free' zones

We expected someone to push for a preemption repeal, but I don't see that gaining traction. We'll oppose it strongly.

In any event, Bruen defines a "sensitive place" where carry could be prohibited - what the Mayor is stating doesn't fit those criteria.

Bob Mokos is a shill for Giffords - they funded this "MN Gun Owners for Safety" group.

There is generally nothing at a state level. However, several cities have ordinances prohibiting possession and/or carry. Check carefully.

Re: Supreme Court's Alito and Thomas warn new gun control law ra

On Friday, 2nd circuit ordered expedited hearings in the cases. b On what? The temporary stay? I'd have expected the 2nd to simply let the stay stand, and to send the whole mess back to the district court so they could begin to argue the actual issues. The district court has already ruled on the me...

Correct. We expect SCOTUS likely to take up this case as there is a split amongst the circuits - we'll see where appeals go.
