  • 2020 Caucus Annual Meeting & Legislative Session Preview

    Join us at our 2020 Annual Meeting & Legislative Session for a look back at the previous legislative session, a look ahead at the upcoming 2020 legislative session, a review of Second Amendment issues across the country, and important training to help you become a better Second Amendment activist in 2020.

    Why you should attend

    This is going to be the second half of an exceptionally difficult legislative biennium.  We have an anti-gun Governor who campaigned on significant gun control - and a deeply anti-gun House of Representatives, many of which campaigned on all sorts of crazy gun control ideas.

    We're going to need a highly engaged group of members and activists in order to put the stop to these gun control efforts before they get out of the gate in the upcoming legislative session - just as we did last session.

    During the meeting, we'll be providing a number of important updates, hearing from legislators that support and defend the Second Amendment in Saint Paul, and conducting a brief activist training session at the end of the day to help prepare you to motivate your friends and neighbors, engage with legislators, and even testify before committees.

    We're still finalizing the agenda, but here's an idea of what's on tap:

    • 8:30am - 9:00am -- Registration / Coffee / Social Time
    • 9:00am - 12:00pm -- General Session (see below for details)
    • 12:00pm - 1:00pm -- Lunch (with various speakers)
    • 1:00pm - 2:00pm -- General Session (see below for details)

    We'll also have tables from several exhibitors along with many giveaways.

    General Session Topics:

    • A look back at the 2019 legislative session - lessons learned for gun owners & activists
    • The 2020 elections - what can we expect?
    • The upcoming Legislative Session - What can we expect? What's on the agenda? 
    • Local activism - what is your city council up to?  How we're staying engaged at a city level.
    • How can each of us learn to be better communicators about the Second Amendment with our friends, family, neighbors, and elected officials?
    • Remarks from sitting Representatives and Senators
    • Updates from partner organizations
    • Open Discussion / Q&A

    Tickets

    • General Admission:  $25.00
    • Second Amendment Defenders:  If you donate $25 or more each month, you're in for FREE!
    • Life Members (or higher):  FREE
    • Legislators

    Sponsorship Opportunities

    There are several opportunities available to sponsor the event, including tables, coffee sponsors, and other opportunities. Please contact us at contact@gunowners.mn for more information.

    We hope to see you there!

  • 2020 Gun Owners Lobby Day

     

    We're going to be challenged again in the 2020 legislative session like we were last year.

    Constant gun control hearings - short notice events - press releases attacking our presence - hostile questioning at hearings.

    Unlike the last several sessions, we now have a strong anti-gun majority in the Minnesota House - and only two votes keep a mostly anti-gun faction from taking control in the Senate. On top of that, Governor Tim Walz campaigned on a strong platform of gun control and has promised to take immediate action once the legislature brings a bill to his desk.

    Even bans on commonly-owned hunting and deer rifles.

    Groups like Michael Bloomberg's "Everytown" and "Moms Demand Action" spent millions of dollars to bring their out-of-state funded anti-gun politics to the door of the Minnesota legislature. Hundreds of them showed up on the opening day of the session to scream and yell for new gun control laws.

    It's time for law-abiding gun owners from across Minnesota to make their voices heard at the State Capitol.

    At Gun Owners Lobby Day on March 4th, 2020 - you'll have a chance to meet with both your State Senator and State Representative and let them hear directly from you. You'll also be able to drop by Governor Walz's office and leave him a note expressing your opposition to his agenda of failed gun control strategies.

    Why you should attend

    Anti-gun groups and their activists will be at the state capitol multiple times during the 2020 session, just as they have been in year's past. It's critical that elected officials, even if they support gun control initiatives, hear directly from you as their constituent.

    The Details:  Where, when, and what will I be doing?

    Gun Owners Lobby Day will be Wednesday, March 4th, 2020.  You can arrive to lobby anytime between 9:00 am and 12:00 pm.

    We'll be at the Minnesota State Capitol Complex at 75 Rev. Dr. Martin Luther King Blvd, Saint Paul, MN 55155. 

    • Parking
    • Upon Arrival:  Head for the State Capitol Building.
      • Once you enter the building, head up to the 3rd floor via stairs or elevator to the basement level.  
      • Follow the signs to State Capitol Room 316.

    • Check in with our volunteers in Room 316.
      • They'll have packets of material for you, including a list of current pro-gun and anti-gun bills, speaking points to use with legislators, a card to leave a note for Governor Walz, and maps/directions to legislative offices for the House and Senate.
      • Our staff and volunteers will be able to answer any questions you have about the legislative process, current bills, ratings for legislators, and information about the Minnesota Gun Owners Caucus and PAC.

    • Go meet with your legislators!
      • Closer to Lobby Day, we'll share information about scheduling time with your legislators so that you can have uninterrupted time to talk with them about your concerns.

      • We'll have easy to follow speaking points to get you through the conversation - and maps to help you navigate through the complex.

    • Come back to the Capitol Building and drop off your card at the Governor's Office
      • Leave your card with the staff in the reception area at the Governor's Office.

    • Check out with our volunteers in Room 316.
      • Let us know how things went!
      • Get any other questions answered that you might have.

    We're fortunate in Minnesota to have a highly available citizen-legislature that welcomes engagement from all political spectrums and beliefs. Even if your Representative or Senator supports gun control, you'll generally find them open to discussion and the chance to hear from a constituent.

    Note:  You may carry a handgun at the State Capitol Complex as long as you have a valid Minnesota Permit to Carry. Long-gun carry inside the buildings is prohibited by statute. We recommend carrying concealed.

    This is a critically important event in the upcoming legislative session. We hope to see you there!

  •  

    Join the Minnesota Gun Owners Caucus for a Rally to Defend the 2nd Amendment in the Minnesota State Capitol Rotunda on Saturday, April 18th, 2020 from 11:00 am - 1:00 pm.

    Michael Bloomberg's out of state gun control agenda was out in full force during the 2019 legislative session. They spent more than $1.2 million electing an anti-gun majority in the Minnesota House of Representatives - last year, they passed his two big anti-gun bills in the Minnesota House.  This year they're going to try their best to get their whole anti-gun agenda through the legislature.

    We need to keep up the pressure all throughout the entire legislative session to stop gun control in its tracks.

    What better way than to have thousands of law-abiding gun owners rally to make sure their voices are heard?

    This year's rally is deliberately planned to happen just before the committee deadline week when any anti-gun bills (and pro-gun bills) must have passed through the committee process to be able to move forward.

    It's a great opportunity to put more pressure on anti-gun legislators and remind our allies what's important to us during the session.

    We will have speakers from all over the gun rights movement here in Minnesota, including elected officials. 

    Timeline

    • 10:00 am: Doors open 
    • 11:00 am - 1:00 pm: Rally

    We're holding the event on a Saturday so that folks that work during the week can attend - and indoors so that we can avoid any weather challenges in April.

    RSVP BELOW, SAVE THE DATE and SPREAD THE WORD.

    Note:  You may carry a handgun at the State Capitol Complex as long as you have a valid Minnesota Permit to Carry. Long-gun carry inside the buildings is prohibited by statute. We recommend carrying concealed. Flag poles & signs on a stick are prohibited. Signs and flags are welcome, however - but must be carried by hand.  We will have Caucus signs available.

    We hope to see you there!
