It's back in Minnesota!

Well the bill that was finally dropped last Friday has came back to haunt us here in MN…those liberal urbancrats will never give up. Last time it was the House, now it is the Senate

Minnesota: Another Gun Registration Bill Introduced

Friday, March 13, 2009

On Thursday March 5, State Senator Yvonne Prettner Solon (DFL-7) introduced Senate File 1165, in yet another attempt to end private firearm transfers in Minnesota.

SF 1165 is the companion bill to House File 953, previously introduced by State Representative Michael Paymar (DFL-64B). SF 1165, like HF 953, was designed to not only regulate the sale of firearms at gun shows, but to regulate the sale of firearms between all law-abiding persons, all across Minnesota.

SF 1165 only affects law-abiding gun owners, and will in no way keep guns out of the hands of criminals. Also contained in SF 1165, is a de facto registration system created by requiring the records of all transfers to be maintained by the state, which would be made available to all authorities, including for use in “civil” cases. SF 1165 would also remove the permit holder exemption from a background check and even increase the waiting period from five to seven days.

SF 1165 is a direct attack on Minnesotans’ Second Amendment rights and needs to be stopped! Please contact the members of the Senate Judiciary Committee and respectfully urge them to oppose this divisive bill. Their contact information can be found below.

Can you post a link to the senate legislation you are referring to? "SF 1165" appears to be something to do with meetings.
