Five actions YOU can take TODAY to support the Second Amendment in Minnesota!

 

For several years, I was a resident of the Commonwealth of Massachusetts.  I had moved there for work after living in Indiana, a state that greatly valued the Second Amendment.  Massachusetts had other ideas.

At the time, I was not long out of college and funds were limited.  I owned nothing more than a single Glock 19 pistol.  

Knowing that I needed a state permit to even possess a handgun, I went to my local police department to complete the paperwork and receive my permit.

I was then told that my local chief did not sign any permits - and the officer at the desk hoped that I had left the gun behind in Indiana.  "Why?", I asked.

"Well, then you'd be committing a felony and I would have to arrest you, " he said.

This was in 1998. Massachusetts has since enacted even more stringent gun control measures.  

It's a cautionary tale, but it will be our future in Minnesota if we do not remain vigilant in protecting our constitutional rights as gun owners.


So what can I do?


Here are five actions that YOU can take - in less than five minutes - that will help protect the Second Amendment in Minnesota.  Can you take five minutes to do them RIGHT NOW?
 
  • First, send this newsletter to your friends and encourage them to sign up.
    The more gun owners and supporters that see our updates, the better informed they will be as voters - and the more power we can command at the polls.

2014 Candidate Surveys, Grades, and Endorsements


Last week, in a joint effort with our friends at the Gun Owners Civil Rights Alliance (GOCRA), the MN Gun Owners PAC sent candidate surveys to all candidates for the following races in Minnesota:
  • United States Senate
  • United States House of Representatives
  • Minnesota House of Representatives
  • Governor
  • State Auditor
  • State Attorney General
  • County Sheriff
GOCRA has surveyed and graded candidates for legislative office for many years.  For the first time, we're working with them to survey candidates for all key state, federal, and county offices in Minnesota.

GOCRA will use this information to publish candidate grades while we will use this information to make endorsement decisions in as many races as possible.  We expect this information to be released prior to the primaries.

The complete survey along with all candidate responses will be published as well.

We hope that this information will help our supporters and other gun owners make well informed decisions at the primary election in early August.

Paid for by the Minnesota Gun Owners Political Action Committee and not authorized by any candidate or candidate's committee.
