So much for Minnesota nice…
We’ve lived with guns for several centuries. Despite those years of cultural and personal familiarity, some people talk about guns as if they had been invented yesterday. I’m going to try and shift the discussion about guns so we can hear this stale bigotry with fresh ears. More people die each year in car accidents than in gun accidents. How do these anti-gun arguments sound to you when we substitute word for word?
- Cars are not the answer. Good people leave the driving to the the government.
- We’re not against car ownership. We simply want you to get proper training before you’re allowed to drive..and we don’t want any driving schools in your state.
- Only criminals and the police drive fast cars. Why do you need to go that fast? Are you some sort of escaped criminal?
- You know you’re more likely to have an accident if you have a…

Last week, Governor Dayton signed major pieces of legislation into law – including funding for the Democrat-controlled executive branch – while eliminating funding for the Republican- controlled legislative branch. The move was partisan and lacked integrity, but more important, it was likely unconstitutional.
Those who follow politics will know that this was just the latest episode in Dayton’s long history of irrational behavior. From closing his Washington, D.C., office as U.S. Senator, to changing his mind on previously made agreements as Minnesota Governor, this latest episode will come as no surprise to many.
The surprising part is how the Governor’s action sheds a revealing light on the Democrat Party. It shows how the Democrat Party has become the Party of “No.” No to bi-partisanship. No to acting with integrity. And no to positive solutions for all Minnesotans. Dayton’s veto is not the rogue act of one man, but is evident of a systemic shift within the Party and many of its’ politicians.
This legislative session has been a historically productive session. Republican leaders negotiated to provide tax breaks for students, seniors, farmers, and families with children. They negotiated to provide proper funding to repair roads and bridges, while stopping a gas tax increase. They negotiated to lower costs and increase options for those struggling with Obamacare.
When faced with these many positive reforms, Democrats, led by Governor Dayton, said a loud and menacing NO. They chose to use the bully pulpit to try to undo the positive advances.
For this reason, it is crucial to elect a Republican governor in 2018. Without a Republican in that office, we can only expect more of the same from Democrats. More partisan and political behavior. More moves that lack integrity. And more senseless blocking of positive reforms
Hissy fit over a GOP candidate body slamming some asshat reporter..
Now how about this..
Don’t remember a whole lot of screeching, squealing and hollering from the lamestream media at that time!!
Or this one..
Failed clown, now a failing Senator….
I am done with the GOP.
Minnesota’s anti-gun orcs – “Protect” MN, Moms Want Action, and the ELCA – are claiming victory today; the legislative session has ended without two very useful Second Amendment bills even getting to the floor.
‘State’ rejects nothing when you have a small group of elected
assholes politicians whom cave to loud, obnoxious, screaming and squealing from a small group of assholes anti gun witches..Whom use hysterics, never facts and logic to get their way…
I am going to the gun store dammit!!!
Why was there no action on Pro 2nd Amendment Bills this year?
Minnesota’s gun owners were instrumental in electing “pro-gun” majorities in both the Minnesota House, and Senate. You volunteered, you donated, you voted, and you made it clear that you wanted strong action on pro-2A bills like Stand Your Ground and Constitutional Carry, just like other states all over the country.
Together, we got solid pro-gun bills introduced in both the House and Senate.
When time was running out on the session, and gun rights legislation was stuck in administrative limbo, you stepped up once again to get legislation sent to the floor of the House.
Then… nothing. The session ended without even hearing a gun-rights bill on the floor.
Call Speaker of the House Kurt Daudt at:
651-296-5364 and ask him why he let gun rights bills die in 2017.
