The City of Bloomington is Now the City of ‘Bloombergton’

USA -(Ammoland.com)- Unfortunately, as we indicated earlier, the Bloomington City Council was dead set to advance the Bloomberg-funded agenda to restrict your gun rights.

The council voted in a vote of 6-1 to enact what is now the most restrictive anti-gun zoning ordinances in the state.

They’ve given themselves over fully to the Michael Bloomberg anti-gun agenda.

A significant number of pro-gun folks came out to testify tonight, from Bloomington and the surrounding areas.

We want to take a moment to thank our members and supporters from Bloomington and nearby communities who came out to argue against this unconstitutional and ineffective legislation.

Minnesota Gun Owners Caucus General Counsel Ben Rust testified against the ordinance, clearly pointing out that the proposed buffer zones around gun shops will do nothing for public safety – and that no facts had been introduced to support this argument.

Many council members noted that the only reason they voted for the ordinance is for “perceived safety.”

This was a tough loss. But, we can have our revenge in 2018 when the city council will be up for re-election.

We’ll remember – we hope that you will too.

We need your help to continue to fight against ordinances and anti-gun city councils like this:

We’re stronger when we’re all pulling in the same direction, together, to defeat the anti-gun forces. Join us today!

Yours in Liberty,

Bryan Strawser
Chair

We did a recall on Roos and Roberti in California and it slowed down stupid laws for a few years. It got the message across.

I would think there could be a lawsuit on the unconstitutionality of their actions. The NRA may be able to help you figure this out or actually help you.

The sad reality in America today is that common sense has left the building long ago. I have been gravely concerned about all the public examples of PC culture but the more this continues the more it illustrates the truth behind the liberal mindset. The more the SJW and PC safe space crowd carries on the more the entire world sees the lunacy. When we look at the voting map we can see that very few if any rural areas supported the leftist agenda. The lack of understanding among the urban dwellers about supply and demand and just where their… Read more »

This attempt to restrict gun store locations was also tried in Savage a couple of months ago. Same story about “perceived safety”. Luckily, Savage voted to not take any further action to restrict locations.

If elected officials are knowingly passing illegal/unconstitutional ordinances, they need to be personally and financially held accountable for their actions!!!

Was this a reaction to Trump winning Minnesota? With all the ‘Loopy’ Liberals acting out their frustration over the Clinton loss you have to wonder?

Unfortunately, Trump did not win in Mn. It’s state bird is, appropriately, the Loon, and should now be referred to as “The Looney State.”
