You Made It Happen!
Yesterday, Minnesota gun rights moved forward as the House Public Safety committee passed the very important gun rights omnibus bill — HF1467 — in a decisive 10-7 vote.
Thank you for your help! Your calls and emails to representatives ensured that they were on board with this important piece of legislation. Our huge showing at the capitol — the seats were almost all full, and they were almost all us — showed legislators the strong support that this bill has in their districts (most of the small showing of the anti-rights crowd — and the capitol tour group they shanghaied and stickered — had to stand in the back).

We’re not done! The next stop for this bill is the House Judiciary Committee.
2. Please contact the Judiciary Committee members and ask them to VOTE YES on HF1467. There’s a list at the end of this message.
