Posted on 05/04/2014 7:57:12 AM PDT by TurboZamboni
There has been some confusion about the Domestic Violence Gun Confiscation bill recently passed in the MN House of Representatives. I have been updated on exactly what the bill does and does not do by someone in the know and it is important that people understand whats going on. In addition, Rep. Tony Cornish really is a friend to gun owners. He worked very hard to turn this bill (which originated from Felonious Mayors Against All Illegal Guns) from a complete and utter disaster into something which actually pretty well mirrors federal law . Interestingly enough . . .
Even though the Dems (Democrat-Farm-Labor or DFL in Minnesota) control both houses of the legislature and the governors mansion, the DFL leadership told Bloomies minions in no uncertain terms that legislators had to work with the Gun Owners Civil Rights Alliance so that GOCRA wouldnt actively oppose the bill. This is what grass roots really means .
To start with, this bill doesnt affect temporary restraining orders nor ex parte orders for protection. Heres what already happens now, under current state and federal law:

“And as an added bonus we will increase your monthly EBT allotment $__ if you check here:
_ Yes. My spouse has committed random acts of violence during our marrage and it is my opinion he/she will do so again.
_ Yes. My spouse does own firearms.
How many firearms does he/she own? Please provide a full description of the make and model and where they are stored:
SURE absolutely nothing could go wrong.
Dude I was working with was a habitual wife abuser. He owned several guns that were taken away from him. He killed his wife with a knife.
What the law does is take away your guns if an xwife/xgirlfriend gets mad at you and wants to screw you over.
No proof required.
“Thats it. And again we should be thanking Tony Cornish (sending him flowers would be nice) for his Herculean efforts in taking what originally was a horrific gun-grabbers dream of a bill into something not so bad .”
Your guns get taken away with no proof, and idiot author thinks that is a swell deal for gun owners?
Later “tweaks” will come to change subtle words back to the police taking possession .
It’ll become a money making auction scenario for them just like impounded cars.
(If MN ‘rats can sneak an unconstitutional bill through for a $90 million office building that is not needed, they can and will do this ,too.)
There isn’t a dimes worth of difference between the two, either way his guns are taken away.
