Or just stupidity….A big dose of it..
Why was there no action on Pro 2nd Amendment Bills this year?
Minnesota’s gun owners were instrumental in electing “pro-gun” majorities in both the Minnesota House, and Senate. You volunteered, you donated, you voted, and you made it clear that you wanted strong action on pro-2A bills like Stand Your Ground and Constitutional Carry, just like other states all over the country.
Together, we got solid pro-gun bills introduced in both the House and Senate.
When time was running out on the session, and gun rights legislation was stuck in administrative limbo, you stepped up once again to get legislation sent to the floor of the House.
Then… nothing. The session ended without even hearing a gun-rights bill on the floor.
Call Speaker of the House Kurt Daudt at:
651-296-5364 and ask him why he let gun rights bills die in 2017.
After he blames it on the Senate, ask him why he’s letting the Senate determine the agenda for HIS caucus.

Then call Senate Majority Leader Paul Gazelka at:
651-296-4875 and ask him why he refused to fulfill his commitment to gun owners and work to advance gun rights legislation in 2017.
Lastly, call Senator Warren Limmer, Chair of the Senate Judiciary Committee at:
652-296-215 and ask him why he stated publicly that he would refuse to give ANY gun bills a hearing in 2017.

We are sure you will get a number of excuses.
By and large, the news media remained calm, collected, and hesitant to speculate on Tuesday night following the terrorist attack in Manchester, England at the Ariana Grande concert. That being said, the evening was not without notable comments, including some from MSNBC’s All In host Chris Hayes.
While the scene in England’s Manchester Arena was still a crime scene following Tuesday night’s terror attack, frequent MSNBC guest, The Atlantic writer, and former Bush administration official David Frum thought it was crucial to tie the bombing to President Trump’s intelligence leak.
CBS This Morning on Monday sounded like Iran’s state television, mocking that Donald Trump “is doing the bidding of American arms manufacturers.” According to network journalists, Trump also “dashed” the hopes of moderates in the country and stealthily pleased “hardliners” with his Middle East speech. Using the repressive country’s talking points, Elizabeth Palmer sneered, “Iranians are waking up this morning to find themselves squarely back in the firing line of the White House. The view from here is that Donald Trump came to Saudi Arabia mainly as a sales rep for American arms manufacturers.”
Following at joint press conference between President Trump and Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu on Monday, Andrea Mitchell could not conceal her disgust at the meeting. The MSNBC anchor and NBC Chief Foreign Correspondent first hammered Trump for not putting enough “pressure” on Israel, then denounced Netanyahu for supposedly taking a “slap” at former President Barack Obama.
On Sunday, CBS’s 60 Minutes and NBC Nightly News acted like P.R. reps for far-left illegal immigration groups, standing up for illegals and teaming with liberal churches leading “peaceful rebellions” to knock those seeking to enforce America’s laws.
A liberal Boston Globe columnist is beside himself over the supposed evil and corruption of Donald Trump. So, the only person who can save America from the “idiot-in-chief” is… Jimmy Stewart? More precisely, Stewart’s iconic role as the noble politician in Mr. Smith Goes to Washington. It’s ironic that the Globe is pining for honesty and reliability, given the paper’s front page fake news in 2016.
Communists haven’t changed tactics in one hundred years!
But wait! There’s more:
Suddenly, the American left has “rediscovered” our Second Amendment, while they target white Americans!
Why is there conflict? The answer is simple. Schools are run by government.

Confront and Support
“Barnabas wanted to take John, also called Mark, with them, but Paul did not think it wise to take him, because he had deserted them in Pamphylia and had not continued with them in the work. They had such a sharp disagreement that they parted company” (Acts 15:37-39).
Conflict in the workplace, in ministry, or even marriage is inevitable because you are working closely with one another. God has wired each of us with different personalities that can view circumstances differently. One person can see a situation and conclude something totally different from another.
There are times when differences and conflicts just cannot be resolved. It doesn’t mean that one person or the other is evil or sinful. It just means that the difference of opinion or the personality clash has no solution.
We see an example of this in the relationship of Paul and Barnabas, two partners in Christian ministry who had a sharp disagreement regarding a young man named John Mark. In Acts 15, we see that Barnabas wanted to take John Mark on a missionary journey. However, Paul refused. John Mark had disappointed him once before and Paul didn’t want to give him another chance. In the end, Paul and Barnabas agreed to disagree and to part company. Paul went one way; Barnabas and John Mark went another. Sometimes, that’s the only solution to a disagreement.
There’s a postscript to this story: In 2 Timothy 4:11, Paul writes from his prison cell in Rome and tells Timothy, “Get Mark and bring him with you, because he is helpful to me in my ministry.” Sometime after the disagreement between Paul and Barnabas, John Mark redeemed himself and became a valued partner in Paul’s ministry. In fact, as Paul faced execution in Rome, he wanted his friend John Mark at his side.
Whenever there is disagreement, make sure you maintain support of the person at the same time you disagree with their position. Avoid personal attacks and implying motive behind someone else’s position. This will allow you to disagree and still maintain a relationship.
