The Minnesota Gun Owners Caucus believes strongly that the Right to Keep and Bear Arms is worth defending – through legal action and litigating the issue in courts if necessary.
While Minnesota’s firearms laws are quite clear, some government entities see fit to violate those laws and restrict your Second Amendment freedoms. We also look for opportunities to establish important precedents through legal action rather than waiting for gridlocked state and federal legislative bodies to take action.
When we see these challenges or opportunities to establish important precedent, we take action and intervene in order to protect your right to keep and bear arms.
Minnesota Second Amendment Sanctuaries
A Second Amendment Sanctuary refers to counties, townships, cities, or other localities in Minnesota that have adopted resolutions or ordinances to prohibit or impede the enforcement of unconstitutional gun control legislation such as universal background checks, red flag laws, “assault weapon” bans, magazine restrictions, or other Metro-DFL driven anti-gun policies at the state legislature.
These resolutions send a strong message to the state legislature that the people, represented through their country governments, are opposed to ineffective and unconstitutional gun control measures.
The Second Amendment Sanctuary movement in Minnesota is driven at a local, grassroots level by engaged citizens and activists pushing their county boards to pass Second Amendment Sanctuary Resolutions.
