THE DAILY SIGNAL
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.)

Guns Are Not The Problem …..

Number Of Americans Who Think Gun Control Is A ‘Top Problem’ Falls To Pre-Parkland Levels…

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.

Everytown: “Emergency! We need to make ***it up!”

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. Hat Tip Bill Baldwin ‏ @ WildBillBaldwin
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…

 

The Battle Lines couldn’t be more clear….

Our 2018 election surveys have been out to candidates for some time – and as completed surveys are flooding into our office, the battle lines couldn’t be more clear.

Over on the anti-gun side, we see Erin Murphy and Erin Maye Quade lined up with a multitude of gun control legislation that they want to see passed.

We have DFL Attorney General candidate Matt Peliken, who has said he wants to ban guns.

There’s Tim Walz, who used to be an A-rated gun rights supporter but now he wants bans, magazine restrictions, red flag laws, and a whole host of other things.

And that’s just a few of the candidates at the top of the ticket for the anti-gun core of the DFL Party. The list goes on and on.

For perspective, here’s a look at what’s on the Murphy-Maye Quade agenda for “Gun Safety”:

  • Banning Assault Weapons:  A complete and total ban on many commonly owned deer and hunting rifles
  • Red Flag Orders:  Seizing firearms when police determine someone is a threat to themselves or their community — keep in mind, Protect Minnesota thinks wearing a “Make American Great Again” hat and open carrying a firearm means one should be investigated.
  • Restrictions on Magazine Capacity:  3 rounds?  7 rounds?  10 rounds?  They don’t say.
  • Requiring “built-in safety measures” and “suing manufacturers when the standards aren’t met” — i.e. running the gun manufacturers out of business
  • Universal Background Checks:  Or as we like to say, universal registration
  • Destroying gun owner privacy:  They call it “lifting the ban on researching gun violence as a public health issue”, but there is no such ban in Minnesota. What they want to do, instead, is to make gun owner data public instead of private.

We’ll be releasing our 2018 legislative scorecard and our 2018 grades and endorsements before too long – but all of that information is for naught if we can’t run a successful and strong election program across the state.

  • Outreach to tens of thousands of gun owners across the state.
  • Radio and digital ads, along with direct mail, to expose anti-gun candidates and support pro-gun candidates
  • Doorknocking and lit dropping in key districts

And that’s just the tip of the iceberg.

We’re up against millions of dollars in out of state funding from groups like Michael Bloomberg’s Everytown, Gabby Gifford’s Giffords Courage organization, and our local anti-gun group Protect Minnesota.
