No comments

Direct from the NRA.... is a direct threat and assault on the law abiding gun owners of Minnesota.... This is a call to action! Call your MN state representative today and call and e-mail these folks on the committee!..... Please Contact the Members of the House Crime Victims/Criminal Records Division! On Friday, March 6, House File 953, introduced by State
Representative Michael Paymar (DFL-64B), will be voted on by the House Crime Victims/Criminal Records Division Committee.

This bill was designed to not only regulate the sale of firearms at gun shows, but to regulate the sale of firearms between law-abiding persons, all across Minnesota. As a whole, HF 953 will only affect law-abiding gun owners, and in no way keeps guns out of the hands of criminals.

A particularly troublesome provision in HF 953 creates a de facto registration system by requiring records of all transfers to be
maintained by the state. These records would be made available to all authorities, including for use in "civil" cases, which are often brought by anti-gun government officials and are designed to damage or interfere with lawful commerce in firearms.

HF 953 is a direct attack on Minnesota's gun rights. It also removes the carry permit holders' exemption from the purchase permit requirement for all handgun or semi-automatic rifle purchases, not just those completed at gun shows, and increases the waiting period from five to seven days.

Please contact the members of the Crime Victims/Criminal Records Division Committee TODAY and respectfully urge them to protect our
Second Amendment rights and oppose this bill. Contact information can be found below.

======== End of NRA Communication ==============

Follow up: I just received this e-mail from Rep. Shimanski. It reads in part:

"Thank you for your comments and concerns about HF #953. This is an unwarranted restriction on our rights. It seriously erodes our second amendment rights by placing unreasonable restrictions on the transfer of firearms and it will shut down gun shows as we know them."

He goes on to say: "I will be opposing this bill and fight this overly regulatory legislation."
