Minnesota Gubernatorial Candidate Puts His FOOT DOWN on Gun Grabbers


Legendary Warrior
May 21, 2006
"From an open letter penned by Gubernatorial Candidate Jeff Johnson himself:
I understand that gun violence is a very difficult and emotional issue, but every time we have a national tragedy that involves a firearm, it leads to an immediate “national conversation” about restricting 2nd Amendment rights. (And, by the way, it’s never actually a “conversation” since anyone disagreeing with the prevailing orthodoxy is labeled indifferent to the killing of children or a tool of the NRA – but that’s a different topic).

As Governor, any legislative action I take will always be directly aimed at solving a problem, not making politicians feel good. Consequently, I will not sign any new gun restrictions as your Governor but WILL work tirelessly to address violence in Minnesota, keep our kids safe and enforce the laws we already have on the books."


It looks as thought the Minnesota American faithful will have someone to look forward to on the ballot after all.
