How My State Rep Thinks..

Government spends money so that the economy can be stimulated and money can
be made. You have to spend money at the macro level to make it work. This
is different at the household level. The private sector creates money by
pulling it out of thin air.~David Bly…

Pretty much explains his big government, socialist leanings.

YOU DID IT!

Governor Mark Dayton just informed the legislature that he will sign SF878 – the Omnibus Public Safety Bill into law.

Your efforts as stalwart advocates for the Second Amendment made this happen!

What does this mean for gun owners?

Later this year, as the laws take effect, the following provisions will be in effect:

  • The Governor will no longer have the authority to seize your firearms during a ‘state of emergency’
  • Ownership and use of suppressors will be legal for all lawful purposes
  • Permit to Carry holders will no longer need to provide notification to the Commissioner of Public Safety to carry at the MN State Capitol complex
  • The process for the Commissioner of Public Safety to determine reciprocity for permit holders with other states will be simplified
  • Minnesota law will be clarified as to the purchase of long guns in other states

This is a great…

Tell Governor Dayton: Sign the Bill!

Dear Kevin,

By Saturday night, Governor Mark Dayton will have to decide: civil rights, or sniveling fright.

The Minnesota Legislature just sent Governor Dayton Senate File 878, a public safety bill, which passed the Minnesota Legislature by huge margins, and which contains five separate gun rights initiatives (see more below).

Now, we need to make sure that Governor Dayton hears our voices and signs the bill.

How Can I Help?

  1. Send Governor Dayton an email, demanding that he sign the bill
  2. Ask your friends to email the governor, too! (Just click here to send them a private email)
  3. Sign the petitionto the governor, from our friends at Minnesota Gun Owners Political Action Committee
  4. Call Governor Dayton at 651-201-3400 (or 800-657-3717), and politely insist that he sign SF878
  5. Support GOCRA with a membership or contribution. Just $10/month can make a…

Dear Madd,

Thank you for contacting me about executive action on immigration and the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives’ (ATF) proposed ban on certain types of ammunition. I appreciate hearing from you about these issues.

In November 2014, the President announced a set of actions that federal agencies will take to address the immigration crisis. On a case-by-case basis, undocumented immigrants who are parents of United States citizens or parents of lawful U.S. residents, as well as certain undocumented immigrants who arrived in the U.S. as children, would be eligible to apply for a type of temporary permission to stay in the U.S. called “deferred action.” The President’s actions would not grant permanent legal status to any undocumented immigrants, as the President cannot singlehandedly grant citizenship to new sets of individuals. These actions represent commonsense policies that ensure that government resources are focused on deporting…

GOA Victory in the U.S. Supreme Court!
— Decision is a win for private property and the Second Amendment

“In protecting an individual right to keep and bear arms, the Second Amendment secures a right of private property in those arms that are protected by the Amendment.” — GOA brief in Henderson v. United States, (p. 19)

The U.S. Supreme Court yesterday decided Henderson v. United States — a case where Gun Owners of America and its foundation have been very active.

The Court’s unanimous (9-0) ruling further protects Second Amendment rights and erects a higher barrier against the confiscation of firearms.


Give a tax-deductible gift to Gun Owners Foundation, to help protect the Second Amendment from further infringements!


The case involved Tony Henderson, a former Border Patrol agent with a previous pot conviction.  Because of his felony, the government tried to take his firearms collection, which totaled…
