They really are coming for your guns. All of them. From the “good” people too! They don’t care.
“[B]anning guns urgently needs to become a rhetorical and conceptual possibility. The national conversation needs to shift from one extreme—an acceptance, ranging from complacent to enthusiastic, of an individual right to own guns—to another, which requires people who are not politicians to speak their minds.”
“BAN GUNS. ALL OF THEM. Get rid of guns in homes, and on the streets, and, as much as possible, on police. Not just because of San Bernardino, or whichever mass shooting may pop up next, but also not not because of those. Don’t sort the population into those who might do something evil or foolish or self-destructive with a gun and those who surely will not. As if this could be known—as if it could be assessed without massively violating civil liberties and stigmatizing the mentally ill.
Ban guns! Not just gun violence. Not just certain guns. Not just already-technically-illegal guns. All of them.”

The DEMOCRATIC Administration of Gov. Dayton stabs Minnesota gun owners in the back. Is this part of the Tim Walz strategy to F.O. the law abiding gun owners of the state???
Minnesota needs a Governor and Attorney General that will stand with us. Not that seek to blame and punish us for the crime and insanity of others.

Subject: MN Permit No Longer an Alternate to NICS
It was recently brought to our attention that (contrary to the Open Letter) the Minnesota Permit to Carry does NOT qualify as an alternate to running NICS check. The application does not allow for the collection of data that is necessary to run an IAQ on individuals for whom it is required – thus the permit does not meet the requirements set forth in the law. BCA is aware of this, has been in conversation with our headquarters, and has officially requested a reexamination of the Alternate Permit status.
Bottom line is that Minnesota does NOT have any qualifying alternate permit, and FFLs should not be accepting permits in lieu of running NICS checks. HQ is in the process of pulling down the Open Letter, along with updating the Alternate Permit page to reflect Minnesota as not having any qualifying permit.
Please note that BCA has requested the re-examination of this issue. We hope to have something in writing posted in the near future. Please help us in getting the word out to other licensees. If there are questions, direct them to call our office (651) 726-0220.

I’d hated guns since I was a teenager. It was a gun that killed John Lennon, after all. Guns killed President John F. Kennedy, Robert F. Kennedy, and Martin Luther King. Get rid of the guns, problem solved—or so I thought. In December of 2012, I even tweeted President Barack Obama, urging him to repeal the Second Amendment and “stop” the National Rifle Association. (Never mind that a president can’t do either by himself.)
For the past eight years, the high court has avoided major cases addressing the extent to which Congress or state lawmakers can pass laws that restrict firearms — and Thomas and other conservative justices have noted their objections.
While a State Department spokesperson pointed out that “the court did not rule in favor of the plaintiffs in this case,” the administration settled anyway, in part, because there’s no added public safety threat because “certain firearms and related items… are widely available” already, the spokesperson told ABC News.

Americans’ views have changed significantly on the hotly debated issue, from a record 13 percent of respondents saying that guns and gun control were the number one issue facing the country in April, to just two percent. In January 2018, only one percent of those surveyed viewed gun control and gun reform as a top problem.
Schumer is an idiot if he thinks these files aren’t already floating around. They’re around and guess what? They’re not really being used by the bad guys.
But things have settled down a bit, just like they always do.
That doesn’t stop gun control activists from pretending that they still have all the momentum.
Toronto Mayor John Tory led a call for more gun control soon after a shooting that left two dead and 13 injured this week in Canada’s largest city. Toronto Police are investigating the shooting which happened late Sunday night on Danforth Avenue in the crowded Greektown enclave where a man with a…
I have to say I laughed at this: And what guns can the terrorists and people with background checks will have at their disposition? I was unaware that 3D printers were so advances they were actually printing in aluminum, steel and wood! It is a Brave New World. They are not even trying to appear truthful anymore.

A criminal justice researcher from New Jersey recently wrote an article that encouraged people who were reflexively for more restriction on gun ownership to explore the online gun culture. She had done so. Her view of gun ownership…
