2019 Gun Owners Lobby Day - January 24th, 2019

Postby bstrawse on Tue Nov 27, 2018 6:10 am

The upcoming legislative session in Minnesota will be a challenging one for gun owners.

Unlike the last several sessions, we now have a strong anti-gun majority in the Minnesota House - and only a single vote keeps a mostly anti-gun faction from taking control in the Senate. On top of that, incoming Governor Tim Walz campaigned on a strong platform of gun control and has promised to take immediate action upon assuming office.

Groups like Michael Bloomberg's "Everytown" and "Moms Demand Action" spent millions of dollars to bring their out-of-state funded anti-gun politics to the door of the Minnesota legislature.

It's time for law-abiding gun owners from across Minnesota to make their voices heard at the State Capitol.

At Gun Owners Lobby Day on January 24th, 2019 - you'll have a chance to meet with both your State Senator and State Representative and let them hear directly from you. You'll also be able to drop by Governor Walz's office and leave him a note expressing your opposition to his agenda of failed gun control strategies.

Why you should attend

Anti-gun groups and their activists will be at the state capitol multiple times during the 2019 session, just as they have been in year's past. It's critical that elected officials, even if they support gun control initiatives, hear directly from you as their constituent.

The Details: Where, when, and what will I be doing?

Gun Owners Lobby Day will be Thursday, January 24th, 2019. You can arrive to lobby any time between 9:00 am and 3:30 pm.

We'll be at the Minnesota State Capitol Complex at 75 Rev. Dr. Martin Luther King Blvd, Saint Paul, MN 55155.

If you're available to join us, there will be a Press Conference at 10:00am in the State Capitol Building. We'd like as many gun owners as possible standing behind us during the press event. We'll share more details as the date gets closer.

We're fortunate in Minnesota to have a highly available citizen-legislature that welcomes engagement from all political spectrums and beliefs. Even if your Representative or Senator supports gun control, you'll generally find them open to discussion and the chance to hear from a constituent.

Note: You may carry a handgun at the State Capitol Complex as long as you have a valid Minnesota Permit to Carry. Long-gun carry inside the buildings is prohibited by statute. We recommend carrying concealed.

This is a critically important event in the upcoming legislative session. We hope to see you there!

Note: This event is being held during the week when legislators are at the Capitol. It's important to be there if you can. We are having a larger rally on a weekend in Saturday so that even more can attend in a show of force as we saw in 2018.

My state senator: Bobby Joe Champion
My state representative: Fue Lee.

Both rated solid "F" by GOCRA. :evil:

Other than their voting records, is there any way to find out what they've publicly said about their gun control stances (press releases, speeches, etc.)?

They've also been rated F by the NRA and the MN Gun Owners Caucus & PAC. GOCRA did not issue grades in the most recent cycle.

You should look at what laws they have sponsored or written (see mn leg website) and what they have said (look at google)

Otherwise, make sure you're on their mailing lists so that you can see their press releases and constituent letters.
