Minnesota: Universal Gun Registration Bill – Hearings Thursday and Friday

Leave a comment

gocra_letterhead_email

The most dangerous bill this session is not a magazine ban, or an “assault weapon” ban. It’s universal registration, masquerading as “universal background checks.”

It’s called SF 458, and it will be heard on THURSDAY at the state capitol. GOCRA will be there to fight it. Will you?

SF 458, among other faults, would make you a criminal, punishable with up to a year in jail, if you buy or sell a pistol or cosmetically frightening rifle without doing the transfer through a licensed dealer (who will charge you $25 to make a permanent record for the federal government) or without the buyer getting a purchase permit (for which the police chief or sheriff will charge another $25).

Of course, these costly “background checks” won’t stop criminals from stealing guns, buying them on the street, or from sending their girlfriends and sisters (who have clean criminal records) into gun stores to buy the guns for them.

That’s because, of course, criminals don’t obey laws.

The gun banners know this any step to make guns harder to own and easier to take away is a win for them.

Whether you can come to the hearings or not, email and call your Minnesota senator and representative and tell them you won’t stand for it. More

It’s time to let your voice be heard at the Minnesota Capitol!

We need you to once again show the Minnesota Legislature that real Minnesotans oppose infringements on Second Amendment rights!

Senate Judiciary Committee chair Ron Latz, a consistent voice against gun rights, has scheduled three hearings next week to discuss the numerous gun control bills introduced this session. They hearing times are:

Thursday, Feb. 21, Noon to 2:30 p.m.

Thursday, Feb. 21, 6:00 p.m. to 9:00 p.m.

Friday, Feb. 22, Noon to 6:00 p.m.

While Senator Latz delayed public announcement of these hearings until Wednesday night, he apparently tipped off anti-rights groups early Wednesday morning!

We don’t know yet which bills will be heard when, but there are plenty of bad bills to go around.

We will watch the committee schedule for any last minute changes.

Please call and email members of the committee and urge them to OPPOSE infringement of your rights: More

DFL’er Alice Hausman launches an ex post facto attack on gun rights

____________________________________________________________

Below is the video of Alice Hausman DFL, 22A, MN, delivering her opening attack on the 2nd Amendment in the House Public Safety Finance and Policy Committee of 2/6/13.  Sighting gun deaths from countries such as Japan which does not have the right to keep and bear arms, Hausman makes no reference to that fact that these countries are defenseless while the US citizens have more than 500 million privately owned guns.  Or, that gun deaths in the countries she alludes to are usually the result of government attacks.  gc indian Furthermore, I know of no one on either side who is remotely concerned with what are most likely fictionalized stats from other countries.  After all I doubt few of the countries she mentions keep actual tally’s on the number of people the governments execute routinely.  Obviously, our own government doesn’t keep any records either and they have empowered themselves to kill us for any, or no reason at all.

The remainder of Hausman’s remarks are nothing more than a re-hash of UN Global Small Arms Treaty mandates which OBama is desperate to implement.

As Hausman concludes her attack on the 2nd Amendment, she quickly folds up her tent and scurries from the room, leaving her lobbyist to listen to public comments….AS DID EVERY OTHER DEMOCRAT.

For some reason, violating the constitutional prohibition on ex post facto laws, as well as your 4th and 5th Amendments in addition to the gross infringement on the 2nd Amendment is okay…….but staying to face the people whose rights you are violating knowing that you your self have violated the very premise under which you were elected is too much to ask.  Cowards are like that.

From Powerline

Under the Democrats’ legislation, no one can buy or possess an “assault weapon” in Minnesota. If you already own one as of February 1, you can keep it. But you have to register it, and give the state permission to inspect your home–which is the only place you can keep the “assault weapon”–to make sure you are storing it properly, and undergo annual background checks. You can’t sell the firearm or give it away, and when you die, your heirs are required to either destroy it or “surrender the weapon to a law enforcement agency for destruction.” So the statute represents a ban, followed by confiscation.

If people actually read the bills, especially HF 241-244 they will find out it actually turns many lawful gun owners into felons. HF 241 calls for registration and annual back ground checks and home inspections, by force if necessary.

So how many of you are willing to comply? And why is no one moving to recall this woman from office?

Minnesota DFL’ers begin 2nd Amendment assault

“I have no doubt that chapstick is being widely used today by those we elected in the Minnesota legislature, in preparation for Monday’s lovefest with Obama .  Maybe someone will think to pass out knee pads, also.”

_________________________________________________________________________

In anticipation of the appearance of King Obama on Monday, February 4th, four DFL’ers here in Minnesota submitted their [coincidentally identical to Obama’s]  proposed legislation that infringes on the 2nd Amendment.  Not only have these people decided that they are not constrained by the Constitution for the United States, Supreme Court rulings or any other lawful obstacle to infringing on the 2nd, they also seemGun-Control-Works-Pictures-e1342051099803 to have forgotten the oath they swore upon taking office declaring that they would defend that Constitution.

Republicans had this same selective amnesia during the Bush/Cheney Crime Administration and worked tirelessly to strike down not only our rights, but the Constitution in total.

Sec. 8. Oath of office.

Each member and officer of the legislature before entering upon his duties shall take an oath or affirmation to support the Constitution of the United States, the constitution of this state, and to discharge faithfully the duties of his office to the best of his judgment and ability.

Apparently, judgment and ability is in short supply in the Minnesota House and Senate.  What a surprise!

SF 235: Modifying the lawful possession of firearms

This bill is on the hotlist of bills in Minnesota and is an ex post facto law.

Ron Latz, the DFL senator from District 46, appears to have no knowledge whatsoever about the 2nd Amendment or previous SCOTUS rulings or even the state constitution and also appears to be suffering from selective amnesia with regards to that oath of office he and several other DFL’er’s took.

Gun control state by state

On Monday, Obama is to appear in what is billed as a public meeting (that really isn’t unless you support his desires) in the Minnesota legislature.  Once there, his mere presence will cause the bending of many legislative knees, and from this position, that great sucking sound you will hear will be the result of numerous legislative lips, both Democrat and Republican, puckering in supplication and submission as he promotes his state-by-state efforts to pass the beginnings of gun banning and confiscation.  More
