The Eden Prairie, MN City Council has been holding public debate over the past few weeks about attempting to ban “assault weapons” from being sold in the city and raising the age for purchasing a firearm from 18 to 21.
This effort is being driven by a small group of anti-gun activists in the city who have been putting pressure on the city council.
On the city council, Council Member Ron Case is the one that is pushing for action on “gun violence prevention”.
Any such ban would be purely symbolic because Minnesota law pre-empts the ability for a city to regulate firearms – such decisions are left only to the state legislature.
Our action for today is to e-mail and call the Eden Prairie City Council and demand they drop this ridiculous effort. If you’re a resident of Eden Prairie, or someone who works, visits, or shops there regularly,
