Newsrag Wants 2nd Amendment Removed…

Using lies and misinformation..

What will they blather about and who will really give a crap once the 2nd Amendment is removed?

Followed by the 1st, 3rd, 4th, 5th, 6th, 7th, 8th and 9th?

Do they really think those in power want us to have any Rights?

They know as long as we have the Right to defend ourselves they will never have the total control over us they want…

To damn bad these idiots in Media cannot see that…

Or maybe they can and are trumpeting what their master’s want?

 

Why don’t more states honor the Minnesota Permit to Carry? How can we fix this issue in the upcoming election?

Minnesota Gun Owners Political Action Committee

If you hold a Minnesota Permit to Carry, you learned during your training that your permit is valid in several other states.  For example, when driving across the state line to Wisconsin, your permit is valid in that state.  But, go a different direction and enter North Dakota, and your permit isn’t valid there.

Many states will not honor your Minnesota Permit to Carry because the Minnesota Department of Public Safety refuses to honor that state’s specific permit.

This concept, known as reciprocity, is at the heart of this week’s edition of the Minnesota Gun Owners PAC Podcast.

MNGOPAC Chairman Mark Okern walks through the reciprocity requirements within the Minnesota statutes and talks about how the MN Department of Public Safety has refused to do their job during the Governorships of Tim Pawlenty and Mark Dayton.

How do we fix the reciprocity issue in Minnesota?

There are two ways to fix this issue.

The short-term fix is to elect a Governor that will make this an issue and direct his Commissioner of Public Safety to address the issue immediately.  Our endorsed candidate for Governor, Jeff Johnson, has pledged to do this upon taking office.

The long-term fix is to change the law and remove the discretionary reciprocity clauses that give this regulatory power to the Commissioner of Public Safety and replace it with a revised statute with teeth.

These were questions that we asked all candidates running for the Minnesota House and Constitutional Offices and factored into our endorsement decisions.

Natural rights are those we are born with..

Life, Liberty, the Pursuit of Happiness..

To help us protect those Rights, we need things like the 2nd Amendment.

But there are those whom would limit those Rights..

Especially groups of ‘special people’, whom although have the same ‘Rights’ as everyone else, demand ‘additional’ Rights’, which are really not rights just special privileges…

Is why we need to fight to keep the 2nd Amendment..

Because without it…We will have no Life, Liberty, nor Pursuit of Happiness..

The only ’cause’ they worry about is one that puts them in the limelight, and lines their pockets.

Bloomberg buys an anti-gun group – the Minnesota Legislature is next!

Bloomberg buys an anti-gun group – the Minnesota Legislature is next!

Welcome to the coldest weather I’ve seen in Minnesota during my nine years in the state!

Despite the cold, there have been many developments over the past week on the gun rights front.

First, Mark writes below about the latest news from the disloyal opposition – the merger of Mayor Bloomberg’s Mayors Against Illegal Guns and the new group Moms Demand Action.

Of course, it’s really not a merger of equals. Bloomberg bought out Moms Demand Action and brought their social media gun-banning savvy into his group of well-funded anti-gun Mayors. It’s going to make for an interesting year in Minnesota.

This past weekend, Mark and I were at AM1280’s Northern Alliance Radio Network with Mitch Berg talking about the upcoming session and our efforts for the 2014 elections.

Later this week, the Advisory Committee on Capitol Security will meet to approve their final 2013 report to the legislature. We’re expecting anti-gun Public Safety Chair – Representative Michael Paymar – to propose yet another gun ban at the Capitol.

Now would be a good time to drop an email or phone call to your state Representative and Senator to let them know where you stand on the issue.

In just a few days, legislators can “pre-file” their 2014 bills and committees can begin having hearings. Our friends at GOCRA are monitoring these developments closely – and we’re working together to keep our efforts in sync where appropriate.

Chairman’s Corner: Moms Demand Illegal Action

One of the unfortunate realities in Second Amendment activism is that the gun-grabbers are extremely well-funded and well-organized at a national level. We’ve written at length about how former New York Mayor Michael Bloomberg is bringing his fat anti-rights wallet to Minnesota in 2014, but there is another threat on our radar which has been shoved to the forefront due to recent events. Mark_Okern_Profile_Shot.jpg

Moms Demand Action is an “astroturf” organization that was created the day after the Newtown tragedy in the best anti-gun tradition of let-no-murdered-child-rest-in-peace-when-they-can-be-exploited-for-political-gain.

Nobody starts a professionally organized lobbying group that quickly. They were lying in the tall grass, waiting to take advantage of a criminal’s deranged act.

In politics, “astroturfing” is a political tactic whereby a professional lobbying organization attempts to disguise itself as a grassroots movement.

They now boast 130,000+ followers across all 50 states.

Those of us working to protect our Second Amendment rights from the lies of Moms Demand Action have long speculated that Michael Bloomberg was funding their operations, and our suspicions were recently confirmed when Moms Demand Action merged with Bloomberg’s flagship group Mayors Against Illegal Guns.

This is unbelievably dangerous for all Minnesotans who value their fundamental freedoms.

Moms Demand Action is savvy with social media and highly effective at messaging discredited or false information to their target demographic…suburban mothers. It is their belief that such an audience will be an extremely effective force for manipulating government action through unsubstantiated fears and purely emotional action.

Unfortunately in Minnesota, such tactics play very well with the metro Democrats who currently control our legislature. What Moms Demand Action has not had to this point is direct and public financial support from a rich anti-rights zealot, but that has now changed.

Michael Bloomberg himself is the primary financier of Mayors Against Illegal Guns, which gives them a bottomless pit of money to conduct their anti-rights activities. Bloomberg has a net worth of over $30 BILLION dollars.

The NRA’s income in 2012 was less than 1% of that number, and their political budget is much smaller than that. If the NRA can’t muster more than a fraction of a percent to match Bloomberg’s blood money, how can we hope to convince an already anti-gun prejudiced legislature of reality?

It’s going to take everyone going all-in. There’s no other way to do it, my friends.

We need to counter the flood of anti-gun money that is coming into Minnesota. We have to proudly support pro-Second Amendment candidates and prove to bullies like Michael Paymar, Ron Latz, and Al Franken that we will not stand in the corner while they tell us what restrictions they think are “reasonable” on our absolutely non-negotiable right to keep and bear arms!

We have a chance to take back our government in 2014, so that we don’t have to fear for our God-given rights every time the Minnesota legislature is in session.

Stand with us…not in the dark corner that anti-rights fanatics like Latz and Franken would force on us, but in the open as proud, law-abiding Minnesota gun owners!

We need your support TODAY to fight every single anti-gun lie from now through election day.
