Fairfax, VA -(Ammoland.com)- As previously reported, House File 849 and its companion bill, Senate File 878, are currently awaiting consideration in conference committee.

Important decisions regarding the content of these measures and the pro-gun provisions contained therein will be made over the next couple of days. These omnibus policy bills contain, among many other policies, numerous similar firearm-related provisions which seek to strengthen the Second Amendment rights of Minnesotans.

Your NRA-ILA has learned that certain lawmakers might attempt to throw pro-gun aspects of this bill on the chopping block in an attempt to check off items on their own agenda. These pro-gun measures have gained overwhelming bipartisan support from both chambers this session, and have come too far to get traded away.

It is imperative that you contact members of the conference committee as well as House and Senate leadership and strongly urge them to retain all pro-gun provisions in the final conference report. 

Contact information for conference committee members is provided below:
