Build It!!


Help get a new gun range built in the Twin Cities!

If you live in the Twin Cities, you know how busy the small number of indoor ranges get, and how long you have to wait for a lane on a winter Saturday.

(And if you’re in Greater Minnesota, lend the city folks a hand anyway!)

A local, familiy-owned business is working to build a new gun store and range in Osseo (map), a suburb (near Maple Grove and Brooklyn Park) the northwest metro. Chris and Jeanine Willliamson have been FFLs for years, and are looking to expand their family business to meet this need.

Of course, some people will oppose anything to do with firearms.

We need to show the Osseo City Council that there is strong local support for this business, at that it will attract people and dollars into the Osseo community.

What you can do:

Go to Osseo tonight:

Please attend the Conditional Use Permit meeting TONIGHT in Osseo:

If possible, arrive by 6 p.m., but get there whenever you can. Please be neatly dressed and polite! This isn’t a protest, but a show of calm support! We recommend AGAINST open carry for this event.

Call and email the City Council:

Please be very polite and friendly, and tell them IN YOUR OWN WORDS that you support a new gun store and range, and that you would visit Osseo and spend money there, both at the range and at local businesses such as gas stations and restaurants.

Obama 23 Point Plan Spurs Fantastic Economic Growth

Retail specialty shops across the nation have reported a huge surge in sales ever since President Barack Obama announced his 23 point plan that was specifically designed to drive thousands of customers to their doors. It not only has spurred growth at the local level but has also sent manufacturer stocks soaring right after Obama’s announcement. The 23 point plan has been so successful that once fully stocked shelves and display cases are now bare and waiting lists have now become commonplace.

NY town defends Remington factory amid new gun ban

Texas Gun Shop Owner Calls for Groupon Boycott after Deal is Nixed

“All scheduled and current gun-related deals featured on Groupon North America, including shooting ranges, conceal-and-carry and clay shooting, have been placed on hiatus while we review internal standards that shape the deal inventory we feature,” Groupon spokeswoman Julie Mossler confirmed in an email. “The category is under review following recent consumer and merchant feedback.”


After Cargill reminded the rep that they had a binding contract, the rep reportedly told Mr. Cargill that, according to the contract, Groupon may cancel their deals at any time.

Utah sheriffs warn Obama of deadly war over guns

Calling the Second Amendment a sacred right of citizens to protect themselves from “tyrannical subjugation,” the association state elected sheriffs said in a new letter, “we are prepared to trade our lives for the preservation of its traditional interpretation.”

Theirs is the first meaningful proof that some in law enforcement and the military are preparing to fight federal forces if the president wins his goal of sweeping

gun control.

In a direct warning to Obama, the FBI and other agencies, the sheriffs wrote: “Make no mistake, as the duly-elected sheriffs our our respective counties, we will enforce the rights guaranteed to our citizens by the Constitution. No federal official will be permitted to descend upon our constituents and take from them what the Bill of Rights–in particular Amendment II–has given them.”

Be Encouraged!

Isaiah 8:12-13:

Say ye not, A confederacy, to all them to whom this people shall say, A confederacy; neither fear ye their fear, nor be afraid.  Sanctify the LORD of hosts himself; and let him be your fear, and let him be your dread.

Madison Square Garden Epic Fail! (light falls on wrestler)

From Arctic Pilgrim…

Both domestic and public history teem with fearful examples of this degradation by submission to wrong; and there can be no more supreme and sacred duty which is owed to God and to himself by the good man than that of protecting his own moral sentiments from this corruption. To resist wrong within the lawful limits, or to evade the power of the oppressor when resistance is no longer feasible, may be the first obligation which man owes to his own virtue.
