The Minnesota Gun Owners Caucus is a grassroots organization dedicated to protecting and advancing the right of citizens to keep and bear arms. We believe that law-abiding citizens should be able to own and use firearms for all lawful purposes, including self-defense, competition, hunting, and shooting sports.
We are dedicated to the full restoration of our firearms freedoms in Minnesota.
Our Areas of Focus
Advocacy: We advance and defend our firearms freedoms in Minnesota through grassroots advocacy at all levels in Minnesota, from local government to the Minnesota Legislature.
Education: We work to improve gun safety across Minnesota through seminars, conferences, educational material, and a statewide gun safety campaign.
Elections: Through our connected political fund, the Minnesota Gun Owners Political Action Committee, we work to elect, support, and defend pro-Second Amendment candidates across the state.
Legislation: We work to restore our freedoms, step by step, through strong pro-gun legislation, while blocking anti-gun legislation that threatens our liberties.
Legal Action: We work to identify areas where government entities and agencies are violating the constitutional rights of Minnesota's law-abiding gun owners and work to defend and expand those rights, including litigation if needed.
- Member Oriented: We are a member-oriented organization. We exist to advance the interests of our members through advocacy, education, elections, legislation, and legal action. We regularly engage our members through frequent communication, events throughout the state, and an open door for feedback and diverse points of view.
