Don’t let anti-gunners sneak new restrictions into capitol security bill!

Gun Owners Civil Rights Alliance

On Tuesday, the Minnesota House State Government Finance Committee will be looking at an appropriations bill for improvements to capitol security. The bill funds construction of a tunnel under University Avenue.

The bill, HF1287, is fine as it stands, but some anti-gun house members intend to add new restrictions — or even an outright ban — on permit holders carrying at the capitol.

You can help!

Please call AND email the bill’s authors and members of the finance committee, urging them to pass or kill HF1287 as-is, and not amend it with further restrictions on the rights of law-abiding citizens.

Please remind them:
* The intent of this bill is financial, not political.
* As legislators strengthen security inside their building, they should not weaken it for themselves and other state workers coming and going from the capitol complex.
* This construction should not be delayed by such politics; this capitol construction must be completed before light rail construction begins, or it may become prohibitively expensive or impossible to complete.

(Please look at the end of this email for a compact list of email addresses!)
