YOU FILLED THE CAPITOL.

Minnesota Gun Owners Civil Rights Alliance

Minnesota Gun Owners Civil Rights Alliance

Minnesota --(Ammoland.com)- Gun rights activists — that’s you! — made a fantastic showing at last week’s gun control hearings at the Minnesota House.

At the hearings, a dozen bills were introduced and debated. Eleven of them would restrict our right to keep and bear arms.

For an overview of all of these bills and what they mean, visit our bill reference page at http://www.gocra.org/news/reference/2013-firearms-bills/

But thanks to your turnout, and your flooding the legislature with calls and emails, there are already cracks forming in the support for these attacks on the Second Amendment:

YOU MADE THEM THINK TWICE!

Rep. Debra Hilstrom
Committee member Debra Hilstrom (DFL – Brooklyn Center), apparently sent hundreds of people this email over the weekend:

Thank you for contacting me regarding bills introduced regarding guns. I do not support any bans or the proposal for additional background checks.

Thank you
Debra

We appreciate Rep. Hilstrom’s pro-civil-rights approach!

Rep. Alice Hausman
Representative Alice Hausman (DFL – Roseville), the author of the “assault weapon” and magazine ban bills, was not even in the room to present “her” bills to the committee. She left it to a gun control lobbyist, paid by out-of-state foundation funds, to pitch the proposals. Even the Star Tribune took note of this highly irregular activity.

Hausman later admitted to a reporter from the liberal web site MinnPost.com that she “doesn’t really know anything about guns” and “just sorta signed up.”

LET’S CLOSE THE DEAL – ACTION ITEMS
These bills stand a good chance of being shot down in committee. You can make that happen:

1) CALL and EMAIL Representative Alice Hausman and (politely) demand that she withdraw the bills that she didn’t even present.

2) CALL and EMAIL Representative John Ward, thank him for his past support of your gun rights, and encourage him to stand by his values, maintain his GOCRA A-rating, and vote against these infringements.
651-296-4333
rep.john.ward@house.mn

3) CALL and EMAIL Representative Shannon Savick, remind her that her district is filled with hunters, sportsmen and Second Amendment supporters, and ask her to vote against these rights-infringing bills.
651-296-8216
rep.shannon.savick@house.mn

4) CALL and EMAIL your OWN state representative and senator and tell them not to support these infringements. If their info isn’t at the bottom of this email, please update your address using the link below! We need it to get you information specific to your area.

WHAT’S NEXT?
The Minnesota Senate will have their own gun bill hearings starting, probably, next Thursday afternoon. If you can join us at the capitol to stand up for your rights, we need you there. We’ll send you more details as soon as we have them.

Please forward this email to gun owners and civil rights supporters, and ask them to sign up at http://www.gocra.org/join.html
