Democrats push gun control except for violent felons


In Minnesota the 2012 election put the DFL back in the majority at our state Legislature, so along with the governor, they are the party in charge.

Emboldened by these results, the gun control advocates swiftly introduced new legislation to put limits on the law-abiding gun owners in our state. The four bills now pending in the House are HF 241, HF 242, HF 243 and HF 244 and they’re all authored and sponsored by Democrats. No Republicans have their names attached to any of them.
