Tell Rep. Norton No!

Tell Rep. Norton No!

Norton_-_Bill_Filed.jpg

Rep. Kim Norton introduced a bill on January 28th, 2016 that would put numerous new obstacles in the path of law-abiding gun owners across the State of Minnesota.

Her bill, purporting to be a "gun safety bill" would require the following:

  • Universal registration of firearms
  • Mandatory government training to even own a gun
  • 28 day waiting period to pickup your newly purchased firearm
  • Mandated storage procedures - meaning that government will tell you how to store your firearms

Representative Norton's gun control bill is filled with the failed gun control strategies of the past, and ignores actions that she could have introduced that would have actually impacted gun violence, such as improving access to mental health, dealing with the widespread under sentencing of firearms crimes in the courts, and adding funding to urban police forces where gun violence remains a challenge.

Here are some actions that you can take TODAY to help us put a halt to Rep. Norton's gun control bill:

  1. Add your name to this petition by signing below. We'll deliver it to Representative Norton's office right after the start of the upcoming legislative session.

  2. Call Rep. Norton at 651-296-9249. Tell Rep. Norton that you are opposed to her gun control legislation and want to see the focus where it belongs - on improving access to mental health care, helping police deal with violent gun crime, and addressing the widespread under sentencing of firearms crimes in the courts.

  3. Send an e-mail to Rep. Norton to re-iterate your points. Be polite, but firm.

  4. Join the Minnesota Gun Owners Caucus and help us in the 24x7 fight to protect your constitutional rights as a gun owner in Minnesota.

 

Representative Norton:

In your press release on January 28th, 2016, you unveiled a "gun safety" bill filled with the failed gun control strategies of the past, including:

  • Universal Registration
  • Mandatory Government Training to own a firearm
  • 28 Day Waiting Period
  • Mandated Storage Procedures

As a law-abiding gun owner in Minnesota, we demand that you end your support for this sort of ineffective gun control and focus on strategies that will actually impact gun violence in the state, including improving access to mental health, dealing with the widespread under sentencing of firearms crimes in the courts, and adding funding to urban police forces where gun violence remains a challenge.

    Since there are more automobiles involved in criminal acts than guns are, let’s apply ALL your restrictions on automobile sales… Think that will fly with Minnesota’s citizens?

    Minnesota is a strongly pro gun rights State. We also have the lowest crime rates in the Midwest. Those points are not coincidental, but are the result of a long held, traditional culture of firearms ownership. It is a tradition that we must continue in order to retain the benefits of civilian firearms proficiency. Thank you, Carl B. Rayman

    Dear Rep. Norton: In the light of world wide terrorism with many young MN men joining terrorists groups which advocate for Sharia Law condoning the rape, pedophilia, stoning, whipping, and beheadings of of non Muslim peoples; do you really think it wise to submit such a restrictive bill? The DHS has attested that there is no way to vet the over 200,000.00 refugees the U.S. will be taking in from Syria over the next few years. Please understand that there is no way can a criminal check be done on these individuals. In fact many criminal offenses which would be considered felonies in this country are considered legal in countries where Sharia Law exists. Please reconsider. Most sincerely William F Luedtke

    first off My name is DENIS ALLENNOT DENIA ALEN! I see a lot of posturing and rhetoric from Democrats but nothing that will solve a non-existent problem that they have made up for their own political gain. We have all the gun laws that we need on the books now. The hard part id getting them enforced. Actually violent crime is going down in this country – according to FB! statistics.
