    Two critical pieces of pro-gun rights legislation are coming up for a hearing in the House Public Safety and Security Policy and Finance Committee on Wednesday, March 8th at 10:15am: HF188: Constitutional Carry (also known as Permitless Carry) HF238: Defense of Person and Dwelling Act (also known in other states as "Stand your Ground") These are the two centerpieces of our 2017 legislative agenda --- and this year we have the best chance of passing them through the legislature because of the work that supporters like you did during the 2016 elections - by putting a pro-Second Amendment legislature in...

    A local politician in Minneapolis who happens to be white has been accused of racism for running against a Latina City Councilwoman. Gary Schiff is seeking to return to his old city council seat which he abandoned when he ran for mayor in 2013. He’s trying to unseat City Councilwoman Alondra Cano, the only sitting Latino member in the city’s history, in Minneapolis’ troubled 9th Ward. Susan Raffo, an area resident and well-known community leader who’s known both Schiff and Cano for many years, has penned an open letter on Facebook accusing Schiff of racism for trying to unseat a...

    The men pay hundreds of dollars for middle-of-the-night cab rides north to the Canadian border. They wade into the Red River to dodge border agents in summer and trudge through waist-deep snow in winter. On Christmas Eve, two wandered in the wind-swept flatness and lost their fingers to frostbite. Minnesota has become a key stop for a soaring number of migrants from Somalia and other African countries who sneak into Canada to seek asylum. More than 430 arrived in Winnipeg since April, up from 70 three years ago. Most come by way of Minneapolis, sometimes after grueling treks across Latin...

    ST. PAUL, Minn. (WCCO) — Help is coming for thousands of Minnesotans hit with skyrocketing health care premiums. The Minnesota House and Senate passed an emergency aid package Thursday and have sent it to the Governor. And Governor Mark Dayton is expected to sign the bill immediately. The Minnesota House and Senate passed that rescue rebate for 125,000 Minnesotans hit with huge monthly premium hikes. But it took months to reach agreement, while Minnesota families worried about what to do. Self-employed families are facing monthly insurance premiums of $2,500 a month or more. They make too much to get tax...

    The Hibbing Minnesota School District has become a battleground in the culture wars around the Second Amendment.  When the Lincoln Elementary School was being built in 1956, it was seen as reasonable and proper to include a gun range in the basement.  The range has been in continuous use for almost 60 years.  The range has a spotless safety record.  There have not been any injuries in the entire 60 year history of its operation. From hibbingmn.com: Director Jeff Polcher noted that there have been zero incidents at the gun range in its nearly 60-year existence. He said requiring...

    Surveillance video of the Crossroads Mall stabbing attack and the shooting by Jason Falconer has revealed many previously unknown details.  They show that a determined attacker can absorb many hits before they are stopped. The attacker used two kitchen knives.  The have about five inch blades, with smooth handles and small, smooth guards.  I wouldn't be surprised to find cuts on the attackers hands from his own blades. A practical response at the Northwoods Candy Emporium illustrates the effectiveness of barriers against attackers with contact weapons.  An unnamed, quick thinking defender pulls down the gate to the store, denying...

    While the NO HANDGUNS sign is cut off in this photograph, it clearly shows that the Crossroads Center, where the Islamic mass stabbing terror attack took place, was and is posted as a Gun Free Zone.In Minnesota, the sign has no legal weight.  Minnesota law prevents malls from banning guns from the common areas, but malls are not prevented from asking that visitors not carry guns.  The sign reads “please while shopping”.  That makes it a request, not a command.The difference can easily be lost on a someone who is not well schooled in the niceties of the law. ...

    The move was sought by local East African immigrants. Immigrants traveling for 30 to 90 days could apply for a hardship which will reduce their rent to $75 a month while they are gone. The Star Tribune reported: Public housing residents in Minneapolis will no longer need to pay their normal monthly rent when travel abroad erases their income, a change particularly sought by East African immigrants. The board of the Minneapolis Public Housing Authority approved this week reverting to its previous policy of collecting only minimal rent during extended absences. The change takes effect once approved by federal housing...

    It was a weekend of coincidences: acts declared not to be terrorism that just happened to look a great deal like…terrorism. After a bomb went off at 23rd Street and 6th Avenue in Manhattan and another bomb was found four blocks away, New York City Mayor Bill de Blasio said: In a press conference in the aftermath, New York City Mayor Bill De Blasio said, “This was an intentional act.” However, he added that he didn’t think it was terrorism, and refused to agree with New York Governor Andrew Cuomo, who said that the bombing was “obviously an act of...

    America’s soon-to-be first female Muslim legislator has a problem on her hands. She’s accused of being married to two men, at the same time, including one who may be her brother. The second marriage was allegedly a sham, meant to deceive the U.S. government’s immigration system, allowing him to emigrate from the United Kingdom, according to local Minneapolis media. But Ilhan Omar, a 33-year-old Somali refugee who was the victor in Minnesota’s Aug. 9 Democratic primary, denies the story, issuing a statement calling it “categorically false” But local attorney Scott Johnson, an author of the well-read PowerLine blog, dropped a...

    Minnesota State House of Representatives candidate Ilhan Omar has made history and been universally hailed as the first Muslim candidate for that office. She may also be guilty of immigration fraud, as she apparently married her own brother, who is not a US citizen, in 2009. But there is no investigation. Why not? Would it be “Islamophobic”? “Further Investigation Suggests Omar Married Brother,” by Preya Samsundar, Alpha News, August 22, 2016: Further investigation into social media accounts, news reports, and legal documents support the allegation MN State House of Representatives Candidate Ilhan Omar married her brother, who is not a...

    Another business discovers the advantages of welcoming the gun culture and supporting the Constitution.  In Minnesota, a gas station has found a way to disuade robbers by welcoming people with guns. From kstp.com: After getting robbed twice over the last three months, the owner of a Shell gas station in Sauk Rapids wanted to get more customers during the evening, hoping it would improve safety. Last week, station owner Frank Schwagel offered a 10-cent-per-gallon discount for law enforcement or people with proof of permit to carry after 7 p.m. each day. Much research has shown, over and over again,...

    Image from cbslocal.com  A recent mob attack in St. Paul, Minnesota, illustrated the reason why Second Amendment supporters have pushed so hard to be able to, at minimum, keep a firearms in their vehicle or their workspace.  It also illustrates why disarmists have pushed hard to oppose it.  The last thing that disarmists want are examples of people who use firearms to defend themselves. 32 year old Bruce Chang was assaulted by a mob of 15 to 30 young men. The attack almost cost him his eye, and could easily have cost him his life.  Fortunately, his wife was...

    Note: This is not an institutional endorsement. Each writer at Hot Air has their own conscience and freedom to decide on their favored candidate. This post reflects only my opinion, not those of my colleagues at either Hot Air, Townhall, or of Salem Media Group. Several months ago, readers began peppering me and other writers at Hot Air about which Republican candidate we would support in the primaries. For my part, I have learned to wait until the vote takes place. Candidates drop out or make themselves unpalatable over the arc of a primary season, and this has been especially...

    If you don’t have a passport already, you may need to get one soon. Residents of certain states are going to need to show their passports — rather than simply their IDs — even if they’re only flying domestic. Yes, it will infringe upon states’ rights handed to them by the 10th Amendment and create unnecessary cost to taxpayers in order to implement the change, but let’s be real — the government doesn’t care about that. From Zero Hedge: To comply with the 2005 Real ID Act, which the U.S. government has been slowly implementing for the past decade, citizens in a...
