Minnesota –-(Ammoland.com)- With a strong pro-Second Amendment majority in the Minnesota House and Senate, there hasn't been much anti-gun activity this year – until this morning.
Today, Representative Rena Moran introduced HF1590, a bill designed to force gun owners and permit holders to disclose a list of all of your owned vehicles when you get your permit to carry.
Under this bill, any time you sell or purchase or lease a new vehicle, you'll have to complete a new permit to carry application and submit to your issuing Sheriff's Department for processing.
Not only is this a massive invasion of privacy, but imagine the side effects of this bill when an overzealous police officer who dislikes permit holders stopping your spouse or child for a traffic violation and decides to prone them out on the side of the road because you're a permit holder – even though you're not in the vehicle.
That's exactly what could happen under a bill like this.
Permit holder and vehicle owner data have no business being connected.
We need to put a stop to this right now, before this bill gets a hearing:
- Call your Representative: Tell them that you are opposed to HF1590. Be succinct and polite. You can look up your State Representative at this link.
- Follow-up with an e-mail to your Representative: Briefly state your position in opposition to HF1590.
- If you're not already a member, join the Minnesota Gun Owners Caucus: Help us advance pro-Second Amendment legislation in Saint Paul and continue to monitor and fight against anti-gun legislation. Our annual membership is less than 11 cents per day.
- If you're already a member, considering making an additional donation to support our efforts: We're entirely volunteer driven – your donations help us reach an ever-growing audience of gun owners that aren't currently politically involved. Can you make a contribution of $10, $25, or even $50 or more today?
There will be more anti-gun bills dropped tomorrow (2/23) – we'll share more then.
