Anti-Gun Bill Now Goes to Full House for Final Approval.

Minnesota Anti-Gun Bill Survives House Committee

NRA-ILA

NRA – ILA

Charlotte, NC --(Ammoland.com)- Last Thursday, the Minnesota House Public Safety Committee passed an anti-gun bill that will criminalize the private transfer of handguns and certain semi-automatic rifles at gun shows.  House File 285, introduced by state Representative John Lesch (DFL-66B), passed by a 10 to 8 vote after being amended with the ban on private sales.

House File 285 will be ready for final approval on the floor of the state House of Representatives after their Easter recess.

This type of legislation is dangerous and must be stopped, as this scheme is the first step towards criminalizing ALL private transfers and can only be enforced with gun registration.  And, as we know from experiences in California, Australia and Great Britain, gun registration enables gun confiscation — only from honest citizens — since criminals do not register their guns or submit to criminal investigations.

According to an internal U.S. Department of Justice memorandum, “universal” background checks will not work without requiring gun registration.  Read the memo and get the facts here.

Please contact your state Representative today and demand that he or she OPPOSE the private sales ban and ANY anti-gun amendment on the floor and SUPPORT the NRA-supported alternative amendment (HF 1325) which was previously reported on here.
