This special message is for gun rights supporters in Congressional District 1
Congressman Tim Walz is having a town hall meeting tomorrow morning. He has been wavering on gun rights lately, so we need to pack the hall with gun owners.
Riverland Community College

11:30 a.m.- 1:30 p.m.
While Congressman Walz wants this to be a meeting about fiscal issues, it is an ideal opportunity for you to tell him, directly, that you demand that he respect the Constitutional right to keep and bear arms. Remember — he works for you!
Congressman Walz won his last election with an NRA endorsement, but he recently said this in the Star Tribune:
WASHINGTON – U.S. Rep. Tim Walz, a Minnesota Democrat endorsed by the National Rifle Association (NRA), said he is rethinking his opposition to a ban on assault weapons.
"I feel like I’ve got feet firmly in different camps," he said in an interview Tuesday. "Between the right of gun ownership and public safety."
Walz said that while he remains a "proud" defender of gun rights, he believes the gun lobby and other Second Amendment advocates are ready to show more flexibility as the nation searches for ways to prevent tragedies like the one in Connecticut on Friday.
Some quick ideas for what you might say:
- I’m a constituent
- I’m a law-abiding gun owner
- I oppose ANY new restrictions on my freedoms, including registration and so-called "assault weapon" bans
- Deal with the criminals and the insane — don’t blame or punish us for their actions
- The Minnesota Sheriffs Association has proposed real solutions to the problems of mental health and violence in our country. Listen to these law enforcement experts and implement their recommendations
