You say “Gun control.” I hear, “We want you to defend yourself against a man who is a foot taller and a hundred pounds heavier with your bare hands.”You say “Common sense regulations.” I hear, “We don’t like these cosmetic features, like an adjustable stock or a foregrip, that make it easier for a woman to use.”You say, “If it saves just one life.” I hear “Except yours, you stupid bitch. We’d rather you get raped and murdered while waiting for the police to arrive.”You say, “Think about the children.” I hear “But not yours. We won’t let you defend them, and if we find out you have a gun in the same house as a child, we’ll take them both away.”You say, “Compromise.” I say, “Fuck you, you mewling cowards. I will not embrace victimhood. I will not willingly disarm. If you demand I give up my life just to make you feel better, you are selfish on a level that is beyond comprehension.”
Washington DC - -(Ammoland.com)- During his March 28 2013 comments on “gun violence,” President Obama once again claimed that 40% of gun purchases take place without a background check.
The claim is meant to apply to new gun sales and is patently false, as Breitbart News demonstrated when Obama first used the 40% figure during a speech on Jan. 16 2013.
As Breitbart News explained then, many gun grabbers get the “40%” figure from a 2011 study by NYC Mayor Michael Bloomberg, titled: “Point, Click, Fire: An Investigation Into Illegal Online Gun Sales.” http://tiny.cc/5laouw
The study claims “40% of guns are sold through private sellers.” It also claims that “the sales–which take place in many venues, including gun shows, and, increasingly, on the internet…fuel the black market for illegal guns.”
This is simply false, and it is as misleading as it is untrue.
This morning in the state House Public Safety Committee, anti-gun Representative Michael Paymar’s (DFL-64B) gun control package, House File 237, stalled for lack of support. The Committee vote that was originally scheduled for this morning has now been rescheduled for this evening at 7:00 pm, providing the anti-gun forces more time to ram this unpopular infringement on our rights through the legislative process.
As previously reported, the Paymar gun control laundry-list would be an unprecedented infringement on our constitutional right to bear arms. Your efforts are working! Please keep contacting members of this Committee and continue to urge them to OPPOSE this intrusive violation of our Right to Keep and Bear Arms.
“Punish Gun Owners Act” hearing moved to 7 p.m. tonightA hearing on the rights-violating gun control bill, HF237, has been delayed until 7 p.m. tonight.This gives you the rest of the day to swamp legislators with your calls and emails.Rep. Michael Paymar, author of HF237, the Punish Gun Owners Act, is also chairman of the House Public Safety Committee, and rescheduled the bill this morning with no notice.Something sneaky?
Rep. Paymar has also waived the 24-hour amendment rule, so he may try to add something even worse to the bill tonight.
How you can help
1. Come to the hearing tonightPlease meet us, starting at 5:00 p.m., outside the Room 10 at the State Office Building, right next to the Capitol. Here are the directions. Wear a maroon shirt, or better yet, your GOCRA t-shirt.
2. Make your voice heard RIGHT NOWCall AND email these House Public Safety Committee members TODAY and tell them:
- Vote NO on HF237
- Demand a vote, and vote YES on HF132
- Don’t miss this hearing!
- GOCRA is keeping score, and a missed vote on HF237 will be counted as a vote FOR it.

“SF 458, among other faults, would make you a criminal, punishable with up to a year in jail, if you buy or sell a pistol or cosmetically frightening rifle without doing the transfer through a licensed dealer (who will charge you $25 to make a permanent record for the federal government) or without the buyer getting a purchase permit (for which the police chief or sheriff will charge another $25).”
Once again, this wouldn’t deal with the criminal element. What criminal is going to care that the law requires that he register his weapon or that he get a background check? All this would do is give the feds a list of people in the state of Minnesota who own a firearm, and they’re using the background check to do it. Criminals would be exempt.
Why is is always the 1st Reponders and those that keep us safe that have their jobs threatened first?
Here is part of what President Obama said will happen if there is sequestration: “…border patrol agents will see their hours reduced….FBI Agents will be furloughed… Federal Prosecutors will have to close cases…Air Traffic Controllers and security will see cutbacks…”

As these maps show, “more guns, less crime“ is true internationally as well as domestically.
Looks like 4800 permits were issued in January this year.
From a quick look it appears that is the biggest jump in one month.
Thanks to Buck Ofama and his Gun Grabbing Nazi’s!!
AGREED!!! Although I will never let any Government assO near my ass..
