Constitutional Carry and Self Defense Law Reform to be heard Wednesday! (MN)
NRA National Rifle Association ^ | 3-3-2017 | Bryan Strawser

Posted on ‎3‎/‎6‎/‎2017‎ ‎12‎:‎52‎:‎19‎ ‎AM by dustind

Two critical pieces of pro-gun rights legislation are coming up for a hearing in the House Public Safety and Security Policy and Finance Committee on Wednesday, March 8th at 10:15am: HF188: Constitutional Carry (also known as Permitless Carry) HF238: Defense of Person and Dwelling Act (also known in other states as "Stand your Ground") These are the two centerpieces of our 2017 legislative agenda --- and this year we have the best chance of passing them through the legislature because of the work that supporters like you did during the 2016 elections - by putting a pro-Second Amendment legislature in place in both house of the Minnesota legislature.

We've worked closely with the National Rifle Association (NRA) and GOCRA President Joseph Olson to bring this legislation forward.

We need your help to ensure that these bills move forward in the legislature this year. Join us on Wednesday, March 8th: If you can be at the hearing, please join us! The hearing will be in the State Office Building (100 Rev. Dr. Martin Luther King Drive) in Room 10. The hearing begins at 10:15am. We recommend arriving early. You may carry in the State Capitol Complex if you have a Minnesota Permit to Carry - prior notification is not required. We recommend carrying concealed.

Call your State Representative: Let them know you support HF188 and HF238 and want to see them move forward in 2017.

E-Mail your State Representative: Follow-up with a brief e-mail to your State Representative reiterating your support for HF188 and HF238.

E-Mail the Committee: E-Mail the members of the House Public Safety and Security Policy and Finance Committee. You can find a roster of members at this link.

Please join the Minnesota Gun Owners Caucus if you haven't already: It's our members and their financial support that enable us to move legislation like this forward. Join us today! It's important that we have a good crowd on hand. If you can be there that morning, please come down!

From what I have seen on the news, it looks more likely that Minnesota will be turning even MORE anti-gun than California.
Thanks to these brain-washed and misled kids, any and every anti-gun proposal is back on the table. :(

Illinois is getting slammed with many of the same proposals - and worse. In some of the bills, there is no "grandfathering" or compensation.

No ex post facto law. A law that makes illegal an act that was legal when committed, increases the penalties for an infraction after it has been committed, or changes the rules of evidence to make conviction easier. The Constitution prohibits the making of ex post facto law.
