Amid concerns about gun crimes, do hunting pictures go too far?

one of the more ridiculous Letters to the Editor

Amid concerns about gun crimes, do hunting pictures go too far?

The Random House College Dictionary defines pornography as “obscene literature, art, or photography, esp. that having little or no artistic merit.”

The Star Tribune ran photos of children holding weapons over dead animals. On many Facebook pages, there are warnings about objectionable content that the user has to opt-in to see. The number of hunters in the U.S. is at an all-time low at the same time gun deaths and crimes are on the rise. As a resident of north Minneapolis, I am dismayed that these photos are allowed to be shown. If a group of young neighborhood children stood around displaying weaponry, would you publish it or decry it?

Bruce M. Olson, Minneapolis

This letter is a clear indication that when it comes to the fight for protecting the Second Amendment in Minnesota, no one is going to be exempt – including hunters across the state.

They’re just as interested in destroying the culture of hunting and lawful gun ownership as they are in passing Universal Background Checks and Red Flag Gun Confiscation orders.

When they’re done passing their laws against “large-capacity magazines” and “assault weapons”, it’ll be your hunting rifle and shotgun next.

In fact, in the last legislative session, Senator Ron Latz and Rep. Jamie Becker-Finn authored a bill that would have made almost every semi-automatic rifle and shotgun a “semi-automatic military-style assault weapon” under Minnesota law.

The Governor-Elect & Lt. Governor-Elect are on a listening tour – make sure they hear from you!

Like we have a problem here in Minnesota with so called ‘gun violence’.

Yet our new Democrat Governor seems to think so.

Governor-Elect Walz and Lt. Governor-Elect Flanagan are holding “listening sessions” across the state starting today to hear from Minnesotans about their agenda during the next four years.

You can see their listening tour schedule at this link.

In their “One Minnesota Agenda”, you can read all about their radical gun control plans, which include:

  • Banning “assault weapons” in Minnesota
  • Passing “Universal Background Checks”
  • Banning “Bump Stocks”
  • Funding research into “gun violence”
  • Instituting “Red Flag” orders
  • Fighting against ANY gun rights legislation

This is an opportunity to attend these discussions and politely (but firmly) express your opinion about their proposed gun control platform.

TAKE ACTION TODAY

  • Take a look at the Walz-Flanagan Listening Tour Schedule
  • Find a session near you 
  • Show up – bring friends, family, local gun club members, fellow hunters.
  • Stand up and share your thoughts:
    • Tell Governor-elect Walz or Lt. Governor-Elect Flanagan that you are adamantly opposed to any new gun control efforts.
    • Tell them the focus should be on school safety, dealing with violent criminals, and helping the mentally ill.
    • Mention that a “One Minnesota” agenda means listening to the concerns of Minnesota’s 2.5 million law-abiding gun owners – not just radical anti-gun activists in the Twin Cities and gun control lobbyists.
    • Be polite, but firm.
  • Record it:  Bring an audio recorder, use an audio recording app on your mobile device, or have someone with you video the entire event — but in particular, record your question and answer at the event.
  • Share it:  Send your video or audio to us at contact@gunowners.mn.

About That Freedom Of Expression…

In Minnesota..

Not so much..

We’ll (the State) will dictate what you can express..

NAZI’s they are..

State Demands Christian US Filmmakers Make Same-Sex Films or Face Jail Time…

A Christian couple who owns a media company is suing the state of Minnesota after being threatened with fines and imprisonment if they refuse to make films involving same-sex marriage.

Threatened? Imprisonment??

Minnesota’s Human Rights Act stipulates that if the owners produce films about traditional Christian marriages between one man and one woman, they must also produce films about unions that violate their Christian views, CBN News reported.

Well there you have it….F__king Government..

 

And The Minnesota DFL Party…

Is proud of this!!!

Minnesota Ranked As Least Tax-Friendly State In US…

As for the 10 least tax-friendly states, Minnesota tops the list. Following Minnesota is Maryland, New York, Illinois, Maine, Vermont, Hawaii, California, New Jersey and Connecticut.

As for Minnesota, Kiplinger says the state hits hard with its income tax.

“It added a new top income tax rate of 9.85% in 2013. But what makes Minnesota really stand out is that its lowest income tax rate is 5.35%,” the finance website said.

DFL used to stand for Democrat-Farmer-Labor party…

What a joke…

Dumb F__king LIEberal party is a better description of them today…

 

Amendment games will continue in the Minnesota House & Senate today!

Adding to yesterday’s committee amendment fun and games in the Minnesota Senate Judiciary Committee Hearing yesterday, where anti-gun Senator Ron Latz attempted to amend gun control onto an unrelated DWI bill.

We expect these games to continue today when Rep. Jim Davnie attempts to amend gun control onto an unrelated school safety bill in the House Education Finance Committee Meeting – and in the Senate, a similar effort may happen in the E-12 Finance Committee Meeting.

These are the sorts of amendment and rules games that we can expect from the hardcore anti-gun DFLers from the Metro, who will stop at nothing to try and pass their ridiculous gun control measures.

Today’s daily action is simple:  Call & e-mail education finance committee members in both houses to not pollute school safety measures with contentious gun control measures.

Warning:  These are big committees.  Start making calls early – but it’s critical that they hear from us this morning.

ACTIONS TO TAKE TODAY:

WE CANNOT LET UP ON THE PRESSURE – NOT FOR A SINGLE MINUTE

Not a single DFL member of the committee voted to protect your Second Amendment rights.

The push for major gun control in Minnesota is in full steam – the anti-gun faction of the DFL are pulling out all the stops to try and cram through their radical agenda in Saint Paul.

There’s no better evidence of this approach than what we’ve seen in Saint Paul over the first two weeks of the legislative session:

  • Rep. Dave Pinto using obscure rule manipulations to FORCE THROUGH A HEARING on his two gun control bills – universal background checks aka universal registration – and gun violence restraining orders.
  • Senator Matt Klein introducing a bill to allow research into lawful gun ownership – data that is currently not allowed to be collected in order to protect the privacy of gun owners.

And then there’s Rep. Linda Slocum’s comprehensive GUN BAN BILL that would turn most hunting pistols, shotguns, and hunting rifles into a new class of “Assault Weapons”, require you to register your firearms annually, and lets the local police “inspect” your home without a warrant.

THIS GUN CONTROL PUSH IS NOTHING BUT BAD NEWS FOR GUN OWNERS.

But we’re fighting back.

In Thursday’s hearings before the Minnesota House Public Safety Committee, our political director, Rob Doar, pushed back HARD against the gun control push from anti-gunners – using simple facts and logic known to all gun owners.

Along with our other testifiers, we stopped the initial gun control push dead in the water – sending both bills to the table in 10-6 and 9-7 votes. Unfortunately, not a single DFL member of the committee voted to protect your Second Amendment rights.

You can watch the hearing at this link — the two gun control bills start at around 57 minutes into the hearing video.

But the fight isn’t over.

We’re working non-stop here at the Minnesota Gun Owners Caucus to represent your interests in Saint Paul, reaching out to gun owners that haven’t previously been in this fight, and using all of the tools at our disposal to fight back — email blasts (like this one), phone calls, petitions, and digital advertising.
