A personal account of how UBC's are self defeating. A friend was leaving town for a couple weeks, and there had been a rash of break-in's in his neighborhood. He brings his guns over to my house for safe keeping just in case they figure out he's out of town. It's as simple as drive across town to drop them off, and drive back over to pick them up when he returned. Under UBC's we would have had to spend several hundred dollars just to "transfer" them to me and then back to him. As far as just locking them up at his house and hoping for the best well let's face it, if a thief knows he has plenty of time then he can defeat most RSC safes on the market.

That’s ridiculous, I can’t believe he could haul all his guns in one trip.

No no no, you guys got it all wrong. The guns all fit in a cube van, the 18 wheeler is for the AMMO.

Gun Owners Protest.jpg
Gun Owners speak up.
Our legislators need to hear from people other than the paid anti-gun protesters that are flocking to St. Paul.

I get it, you use the truck to hall containers to the rail head using multiple trips and the use the train to get it to the container ship which you can sail to international waters. Anybody know how big if a ship I can get through the canals on lake minnetonka?

Because you might hit someone’s expensive house on Minnetonka. Then they’d pass an ammo ship ban here.

I am taking this new threat very seriously. The threat in MN is very real. Federally, with the strength in the Senate, while ominous, it's not as bad as we have it in MN. It's happening. We are losing.

I did all the actions recommended by MN Gun PAC.

I also made sure a couple of 18 year olds did the contacts via the action form https://www.gunowners.mn/action

I also am paying monthly to the MN Gun PAC.

Yes, tooting my horn a bit, but I hope everyone that reads this does the same.

We're hanging on by a slender thread here in MN with the Senate.
