Minnesota Gov't proposed bill H.F. No. 241

Postby dewey » February 1st, 2013, 2:46 pm

To all of you hunters out there that have detachable magazines, pistol grips or thumbholes on your shotgun/rifle keep an eye on this bill and contact your legislator as needed. It is H.F. No 241 and this bill will list the following as an assulat weapon. Not surprisingly it is sponsored by representatives from the Metro area as well as one from Duluth.

I don't have any of these features on my shotgun or rifle but some might so I wanted to show this to all of the hunters in Minnesota. I try not to talk politics on this forum but I think this needs attention.

Does this have a chance of passing?
My 10 yr old Grandson is going turkey hunting with me this spring here in WI. He like most kids is recoil sensitive so we're changing the stocks on a single shot HR to black forearm and pistol grip stock with recoil suppression stuff. So this would be considered an illegal gun in MN if this law passes?

It depends if the gun is a semi automatic or not. Because we all know that semi automatic guns with pistol grips are 'bad' guns. :lol:
As for the chances of this passing the DFL controls the house, senate and the governor so in essence they can pass whatever they want. As for my personal opinion the authors of this bill are from the metro area, 3 of the 4, and the other is from Duluth. I think this bill will be very unpopular in out state Minnesota where the majority of Minnesota is more conservative. I have my opinion on gun laws but I will keep them to myself.

Dewey nailed it. This is pushed by politicians from the metro as a "feel good" bill for their constituents, most of whom couldn't tell you the difference between a shotgun and a rifle anyways. There has always been a disconnect between the metro and outstate Minnesota, I only see it growing larger.

Gopher you are right on when about the political landscape in Minnesota! All gun control does is in my opinion prevent honest people from possessing certain guns. I am sure all of the gang bangers in Chicago, Los Angeles and everywhere else will turn in their illegal firearms when the new laws come in to effect, yeah right.

I would imagine that these new gun laws will be ram rodded through in as many states as the Democrats control. I will say in my opinion there are certain proposed gun laws that should get passed, I.e. background checks for all gun purchases regardless of where they are purchased. However trying to stop crimes from happening by banning certain firearms is ridiculous.

Stepping down from my soapbox.

Other than make a contribution to the NRA as a NR there is not much I can do the help you guys out. So far I very happy this wrong headed thinking is not being proposed as law in WI. At least not on any serious level, yet.
As an outsider looking in, on the personal freedom front MN seems to be accelerating the decline.
Keep up the good fight.

A couple more authors were added to the bill. No shock here but they are all from the Minneapolis-St Paul metor area.

Here is a link to the authors of this bill.

Here is another bill to keep an eye on authored by pretty much the same people.
