YOU DID IT!
“Assault weapon,” magazine bans off the table (for now)
Your calls, emails, and overwhelming numbers at the Minnesota Capitol sent a clear message to lawmakers, and last night, the chairman of the Senate Judiciary committee told the Star Tribune that he will NOT pursue an “assault weapon” or magazine ban.
The fight is not over yet, though: there are still a raft of anti-rights bills coming up in the Senate on Thursday and Friday, and a new ban could sneak in as an amendment to any bill.
The gun grabbers hope that you’ll stop paying attention! Will you?
