"Obama is expected to make more trips around the country to build support for his anti-gun violence measures. The outside group Organizing For Action, an offshoot of Obama's presidential campaign, is also promoting the proposals."

Great state to spew gun grabbing barf in.

This state is practically useless to this republic.

Do we pay this clown to be a Campaigner In Chief, or to be the boss of the Executive Branch of our Fed Gov? Spend a little time reading the requests for security help from your Ambassadors around the globe, and park AF One for a while!!!

This bill subsequently attacks your privacy, establishes de-facto gun registration, as well as weakens the MN permit to carry.

When applying for your permit to purchase, police officers can extend the processing time for up to 30 days (instead of the current 7 days) under the guise of “verifying your identity”.

Currently, your permit to carry acts as a 5 year “permit to purchase” for the transfer of firearms. If this bill becomes law, you will need to get a permit to purchase every 12 months, on top of your permit to carry. This is an unnecessary redundancy, as MN sheriffs must check the validity of your carry permit annually.

This bill intends to allow the government to know who, what, where, and when you transfer a firearm to another party by requiring you to process all transfers through a FFL federal dealer. The government will keep track of all sales, transfers, loans, and gifts outside of immediate family.
Not only does this bill mandate that you involve a 3rd party in your private transaction, the government will have a say in the fees that are charged in a private transaction.

Planning on loaning your buddy your gun for deer opener? You’ll need to go to an FFL for loans over 24 hours.

HF0244 – Blame the Victim
Short Description:
Firearm loss or theft false report crime established, crime of transferring firearms to an ineligible person expanded, and a person convicted of these crimes made ineligible to possess a firearm.
This bill would shift the blame from the criminal to the victim of a gun theft, and would actually make people less likely to report a theft.
LOSE YOUR GUN, LOSE YOUR RIGHTS:
Anyone that has misplaced, lost, or had a gun stolen knows how scary that is.
This bill would criminalize those who “falsely” report their guns lost or stolen, slapping them with a gross misdemeanor charge, and the loss of their right to own a firearm.
This bill would have the opposite effect from the one intended. People would be reluctant to report their firearms lost or stolen, when they may have just been misplaced, because they don’t want to risk being charged with filing a false report.
This means legitimately stolen guns could go unreported for a longer period of time, as law-abiding gun owners don’t want to lose their rights.
BLAMES YOU FOR CRIMINAL’S ACTIONS:
This bill also increases the liability on law abiding citizens and businesses who sell their firearms.
Under current law, it is a crime to sell a firearm to someone you know is ineligible.
This bill seeks to lower the threshold to “has reason to believe” the buyer is ineligible or intends to commit a crime. This is an incredibly subjective standard which can and will be used to blame people who made a sale in good faith.
We cannot change the law to place the blame on victims of crime and innocent citizens.

HF0240 – “Prove You’re Sane” and Rights Removed. HF0240 – Rep. Schoen Short Description: Mental health screening improved for persons applying for firearm permits. This bill gives Police and Sheriffs additional power, with no accountability when processing your permit to carry, or permit to purchase, and weakens your ability to appeal a denial. Also, one thing they are hoping you won’t notice, it denies non-residents the right to carry in Minnesota.

PROVE YOU’RE SANE: Current MN law allows a Sheriff or Police chief to deny your permit application if he believes “that there exists a substantial likelihood that the applicant is a danger to self, or the public. This bill lowers the threshold required for a Sheriff or Police Chief to deny the permit from “substantial likelihood” to “likelihood”. While that seems like a minor adjustment, it can pose significant problems for someone attempting to appeal a wrongful denial. What is far more shocking, this bill will give law enforcement the ability to require you to obtain a letter from a state licensed primary care physician or state certified mental health professional before they process your application. Amazingly, after this embarrassing harassment, once you’ve provided the letter they are under no obligation to take it into consideration. Currently, if you are wrongfully denied, you can appeal the decision to the district court. However, this bill significantly lowers your ability to successfully appeal an improper denial by lowering the threshold of the evidence required to deny your rights. Currently, if there is “clear and convincing evidence” that you pose a danger to self or others, your permit appeal can be denied. This bill seeks to significantly lower the threshold to “a preponderance of the evidence”. This means that if in the eyes of the court there is a slight chance you pose a danger to self or others, your appeal can be denied, sticking you with legal fees and a loss of your rights.

NON RESIDENTS RIGHTS DENIED: In order to carry in Minnesota, even non-residents have to take a carry class from a state-approved instructor, and follow the EXACT same process as a resident. Even though these people have been going through the exact same class, have needed to meet the exact same criteria, and go through the exact same application process, this bill assaults the rights of people who work in, visit, and pass through Minnesota with absolutely no cause. Contact the members of the committee below, and show up on the 5th, 6th, and 7th. Make it clear that law-abiding citizens will not stand for assaults on our rights, and legislation that will do nothing to prevent criminals from getting firearms.
