GOCRA 2A bills pass Senate; Dayton vows to veto


Pro-2A bills pass Senate, but Dayton vows to veto suppressors


Last night, the Minnesota Senate voted 40-23 in favor of our five pro-2A bills, with “yes” votes from all Republicans present, and 13 of 36 Democrats — but not your senator, Kevin Dahle.

The most visible bill, HF1434, would allow Minnesota to join 39 other states that allow its citizens to legally own firearm sound suppressors — after a ridiculously thorough triple background check.

That bill passed the Minnesota House one week ago, with a vote of 89-40, including “yes” votes from 20 House DFL members.

Vote tally

Your Senator Voted No

Your senator, Kevin Dahle, voted AGAINST your Second Amendment rights. Please call or email him (info below) and tell him that you do not agree with his vote.  Remind him that Second Amendment rights are important to you, and strongly influence your vote. Ask him to read our fact sheets at gocra.mn/2015 to get the REAL facts.

Dayton Promises Veto

In spite of this broad bipartisan support, Governor Dayton told news media today that he intends to veto the bill! He cited the same discredited objections that the House overcame — that quieter firearms endangered cops and citizens.

Governor Dayton is wrong: crime with legal, registered silencers is almost nonexistent, as a recent article in the Minnesota Police and Peace Officers Association’s magazine pointed out (see the article at gocra.mn/mps).

What You Can Do

We need your help to ensure that the suppressor bill, (as well as our capitol carry, emergency powers, reciprocity and interstate purchase provisions) become law. Can you jump in?

Please do these things right now:

  • Email Governor Dayton and encourage him to sign the bill when it reaches his desk.
  • Call the governor’s office and deliver the same message:
    • suppressors aren’t used in crime
    • they aren’t “silent”
    • they save our hearing
    • he should sign SF878/HF849 when it reaches his desk

Thanks for being a pro-2A Minnesota patriot!


Five easy ways to support gun rights TODAY

No I cannot make this today.
I know both Bly and Dahle are big government worshipping anti gun legislators. Both have spent the careers sucking off the public tit.
And they know where I stand!!!
Are you sure you can’t make it to the Minnesota Gun Owners Lobby Day today at noon? Don’t worry! You can still make a difference, and it only takes a minute:
Here are five easy ways to have an impact TODAY:
1. Call Senator Kevin Dahle and Representative David Bly, TODAY! (Their info is at the end of this email!)
Tell them that you are calling because it’s Minnesota Gun Owners Lobby Day. Tell them that #MNGOLD‘s hundreds of attendees represent the hundreds of thousands of law-abiding, voting gun owners in the state.
2. Send them an email!
Same message, electronic delivery!
3. Spread the word!
Take a minute to like GOCRA and MNGOPAC on Facebook, follow @MNGOPAC and @MN_GOCRA on Twitter, and invite a few friends!
Tweet about today’s rally on with the hashtag #MNGOLD. Write about MNGOLD on Facebook.
4. Support the organizations that support your rights
Fighting for our rights isn’t free. If you can spare $10 or $20 to help fund today’s event, we’d appreciate it.
5. Make an appointment to see your elected officials another day
Can you imagine if your senator and representative had a gun-rights constituent visit every day of the session? They would begin to understand the strength of the millions of law-abiding gun owners in Minnesota. So call their offices today, and arrange to visit in a week or three.

Dayton’s Shell Game

Dayton’s Shell Game Sends Mixed Signals On Middle Class Taxes

Minnesotans beware.

Governor Mark Dayton has been very clear on where he stands with raising taxes on businesses and “the rich” – yes you.

It’s much harder to figure out where Governor Dayton and the Democrats are coming from on the issue of taxes and the middle class.

They held a press conference this week touting new projections that property taxes would actually decrease in 2014. Keep your eye on those projections, by the way – they come from the same agency that predicted e-pull tabs would finance the new Vikings stadium.

So the Governor says low property taxes are a good thing for hard-working Minnesotans. We agree. But he had to raise over $2 billion in new taxes and fees, much of them on the middle class and even poor Minnesotans, to pay for lots of things including his supposed $121 million property tax reduction.

So which is it? Are higher taxes good or bad for the middle class?

Perhaps Minnesota families can use their projected property tax savings, if it ever materializes, to pay for all of the other cost increases they will experience because of the Dayton/DFL 2013 budget:

  • Higher energy bills.
  • Fewer choices and higher costs for childcare under forced unionization of childcare.
  • Higher premiums, higher co-pays, higher prescription drug prices and even fewer hours at work because of the healthcare exchange legislation.
  • New tobacco taxes.
  • Higher costs to download music and other files from the Internet.
  • Higher costs for car rentals.

Each day it becomes more apparent – Republicans stood against wasteful government spending and for an economic recovery that would continue producing middle class jobs, and what Mark Dayton and the Democrats really wanted was bigger government and more spending.

Yes Minnesotans, beware. Despite their spin, the Democrat’s all-tax-increases budget taxes everyone. And raising taxes in one area to supposedly reduce taxes in another is more than a gimmick, it’s a shell game. Make sure you are watching their other hand.

Tax Increases!

My local Representatives to the Minnesota House and Senate are both teachers. They have never as far as I know, maybe college worked outside the Public Sector and lived off the Taxpayer.

And they pretty much do nothing to help the taxpayer out always looking for more money to handout to their Teacher Union friends, Union supporters and special interests.

And one is a complete ass.

Here is an article on how the Middle Class in Minnesota is taking it in the ass once again.

Thanks to DFL tax and spend legislators…

But that does not stop them from wanting to grab and disarm us.

State Budget Forecast Improves Again
Now is Not the Time to Raise Taxes

(St. Paul, MN) –
Today Minnesota’s Office of Management and Budget released the state’s
February budget forecast. The projected deficit dropped from $1.1 billion to $627 million. Our state is in far better financial condition than it was two years ago, when we faced a $5.1 billion deficit.
“Two years ago, Governor Mark Dayton insisted that Minnesota’s economy would be damaged
without massive tax increases. Republicans held firm and balanced the budget by setting priorities and holding back the growth of government. Two years later our economy is improving, tax revenues are increasing, and the state is in better shape.
“ But now Governor Dayton and DFL legislators want to raise taxes
on every Minnesotan. This will
hurt families, slow our economy, and return us to a cycle of low growth and big deficits,” said
Senator Dave Thompson (R-Lakeville), Assistant Minority Leader

Fuck…..Sorry, but that is how I feel right now…

Moving would be an option today and I know a few that are considering it.

News From St Paul..

By our former State Rep whom was shoved aside into another district by redistricting and allowed our former, former DFL (Dumb F***ing LIEberal) State Rep to return..A true Union loving, Spend, spend, spend, special interest worshiping former teacher whom I swear never did a days honest work!!

Thanks to all who attended Saturday’s town hall meetings I hosted with Sen. Kevin Dahle in New Prague and Elko/New Market. It was especially interesting to hear the serious concerns people have regarding the DFL’s proposal to raise taxes on all Minnesotans. I shared my own thoughts on why I oppose the governor’s tax increases during a recent press conference (my comments begin at the 1:50 mark of this video).


We also met with several corn, soybeans and pork producers for breakfast on Saturday. The DFL’s new sales taxes – which also would apply to business-to-business transactions – would greatly impact our farmers and ranchers. I appreciated these folks sharing their perspective on these tax increases as well as on other issues facing our agricultural economy.


Speaking of taxes, a DFL sponsored bill would raise the excise taxes on beer, wine, and liquor by nearly 1,000 percent. Yes … 1,000 percent. As an example, the tax on wine would go from $3 to $30 per gallon. These new taxes would be on top of the $3.7 billion in tax increases already being proposed.


Yet Another Positive Budget Forecast

The budget we enacted in 2011 continues to produce positive effects for our state’s economy and is good news for taxpayers. The latest in a string of positive reports brings us to nearly $3 billion in surplus revenue for the budget enacted by the Republican majorities and the governor in 2011. That is an incredible turnaround from the $6 billion shortfall we faced as a state in 2010 (without raising taxes).


The report also indicates an improved outlook for 2014-15, with our projected shortfall having shrunk from $1.1 billion to $627 million. As a result of the positive budget numbers from the last quarter, an additional $290 million will go to our schools, leaving the school shift at 86.5 percent (the shift was at 70 percent in 2010). Here is a recent article in which I explain the reason we must pay back the shift fully in 2013. 



Dayton’s K-12 Budget

In 2011, we had to make up for $500 million in one-time federal stimulus funding. We not only made up for that gap, we added another $100 per pupil to the K-12 funding. The governor in his budget increases per-pupil funding by only about half of that amount.


Another issue we must address is how to help offset the increased health care costs borne by school districts under Obamacare. School districts are beginning to indicate they may seek levy increases this fall to pay for the increases costs associated with compliance to Obamacare. The governor and the DFL majorities ignore this issue in their K-12 budget.


The governor’s budget also does not address the remaining $800 million we owe still owe our schools. By his inaction the governor actually borrows another $84 million from our schools to pay for other priorities.


The Minneapolis Star Tribune recently printed a commentary I co-authored with Sen. Sean Nienow with more on this subject.

Warm regards,



Democide! Control. Politicians. No Gun.

Is what it is.

Democide: Socialism, Tyranny, Guns and Freedom

Democide is the elimination of a despised group by a government. It includes genocide, politicide, and other forms of state-sponsored mass murder. The hated minority headed for extermination may be defined by religious, racial, political, class, cultural or other attributes. Between 200 and 260 million people were the victims of democide in the 20th century, several times more than were killed in international wars during that period.

Go read it all and watch the video…Then sleep well afterwards..If you can.

SO folks, who is the hated group right now in America? Jated by the left. The Anti Freedom crowd and the Government?

Is those whom hold firmly onto their beliefs…In God, in Country, in Family, in Freedom, in Firearms. Notice how all those are under attack?

Think about it..


Bongino: There is no gun control, there is only ‘people-control’

That is what it is all abour. They cannot control us completely if we are armed. No matter what they do to us, if we are armed we can fight back..

Those willing to can. Those in power do not want that. So by foisting ‘gun’ control on us…They control us. Completely. To do what they want us to do.

Including dying..You disagree?

Look at history..


Warning: Politicians – We Will Not Allow You To Disarm Us

But will they listen? I know the 2 DFL politicians David Bly and Kevin Dahle representing my district at the State level will not.
Pretty damn sure it is a hopeless cause with Amy Klobuchar (spit) and Al Franken (failed clown) representing us.
So what happens when the grabbing begins?
Do they really think with 90 million gun owners and 300 million guns out there…Someone won’t get shot? maybe a lot of someones?
Are they really that rodrammed stupid?

No gun mentioned..

Man dies after assault at St. Paul bar

So no real crime here. Just a disagreement..Move along.
