Ban Guns. All of Them…

Minnesota Gun Owners Civil Rights Alliance….

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.”

MN Permit No Longer an Alternate to NICS??????

From Minnesota Gun Owners Civil Rights Alliance….

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.

The local ATF announcement says the Minnesota BCA initiated this.

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.

Thank you.

Gun News ….

Getting a gun in New York City is a difficult endeavor. You have to be permitted just to buy a gun, and it’s not like they’re “shall issue” permits, either. They don’t make it easy, and truth be told, it hasn’t shown much of an impact on crime. After all, the city has seen crime rise and fall with no change in the gun…
There are a handful of names I routinely think of when it comes to the March For Our Lives crowd.

New information has come out about the mass shooter who seriously wounded three people at his place of employment, and who was ultimately shot and killed by police, in Middleton, Wis. on Wednesday. According to a report from the…

Gun Control Twist: Saving One Life “Does Not Justify” Right-to-Carry

I Used to Hate Guns and the NRA. Then I Was Mugged. external site

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.)

I have to say I laughed at this: And what guns can the terrorists and people with background checks will have at their disposition?
