UPDATE!!!

Senator Latz’s committee assistant sent us a notification last night that the hearing would be at noon. Today, the committee schedule was updated to show that the hearing was at 6 p.m. Strangely enough, the anti-gun Facebook page had the 6 p.m. time listed hours before the committee page was updated. Don’t you wonder how we got sent the wrong info, and they got the right info?

More gun control: here it comes! (evening hearing)

A pile of anti-rights legislation will be heard by the a Minnesota Senate committee on Thursday at 6 p.m.

More gun control: here it comes!

A pile of anti-rights legislation will be heard by the a Minnesota Senate committee on Thursday at noon.

The Senate Judiciary Committee, headed by Sen. Rob Latz, will hear the bill, which he authored, and which is likely to closely match Rep. Michael Paymar‘s rights-stripping HF237.

The committee is heavily weighted toward urban, anti-freedom urban DFLers, who need to hear from you that real Minnesotans DO NOT support these policies. Their contact information is below.

If you are free on Thursday, it is important that we have plenty of gun rights supporters, but this will not be the last, or even the most important, event at the capitol in the coming days and weeks. If you have to save your days off, there will be more winnable battles.

Please continue to write and call your own senator an representative, with three simple messages:

  • I am your constituent
  • I oppose Rep. Paymar’s HF237 and its Senate companion
  • I support Rep. Hilstrom’s HF1325 and its Senate companion

Oh, and If you haven’t gotten your GOCRA supporting membership, now is a great time!

MN Senate gun control hearings next week: WE NEED YOU THERE!

gocra_letterhead_email.png

It’s time to let your voice be heard at the Minnesota Capitol!

We need you to once again show the Minnesota Legislature that real Minnesotans oppose infringements on Second Amendment rights!

Senate Judiciary Committee chair Ron Latz, a consistent voice against gun rights, has scheduled three hearings next week to discuss the numerous gun control bills introduced this session. They hearing times are:

  • Thursday, Feb. 21, Noon to 2:30 p.m.
  • Thursday, Feb. 21, 6:00 p.m. to 9:00 p.m.
  • Friday, Feb. 22, Noon to 6:00 p.m.

While Senator Latz delayed public announcement of these hearings until Wednesday night, he apparently tipped off anti-rights groups early Wednesday morning!

We don’t know yet which bills will be heard when, but there are plenty of bad bills to go around.

We will watch the committee schedule for any last minute changes.

Please call and email members of the committee and urge them to OPPOSE infringement of your rights:
