Minnesota demands a vote on SF1359
Put the pressure: make two phone calls and send one email right away!
Last night, Sen. Ron Latz (DFL-46) rammed his gun control bill
through the Judiciary Committee (he’s the chairman), and refused to take a vote
on Sen. Julianne Ortman’s (R-47) rights-respecting Criminal Control
The good Ortman good bill, SF 1359
, has the support of GOCRA
, the NRA
, the Minnesota Sherrifs Association
, the Minnesota County Attorneys Association
, and broad, bipartisan legislative support
, including more than half of the Minnesota House.
Sen. Ortman’s bill addresses criminals’
use of guns.
Sen. Latz’s bad bill, SF458
, attacks the rights of law abiding citizens
, and would create unversal gun registration in Minnesota, send us back to the bad old days of “May Issue” purchase and carry permits
, and strip gun owners of vital Due Process protections.
Demand a vote!
We need you to call Sen. Latz’s office right this minute
and demand that he put Sen. Ortman’s SF1359 on the agenda of today’s Judiciary Committee meeting
