Yesterday the Public Safety Conference Committee, without any Republican representation, snuck in red flag gun confiscation and universal gun registration into their omnibus bill to shield vulnerable senators from voting on the controversial legislation. The final language of the amendments was available to the public less than 15 minutes before being adopted into the omnibus bill following backroom negotiations.
“Some of these senators have a tough decision to make. Are they willing to sacrifice their legislative careers on the altar of the Metro-centric DFL agenda, or will they uphold the independent spirit pledged to constituents,” asked Rob Doar, Senior VP of the Minnesota Gun Owners Caucus. “Voters in Seeberger, Hauschild, and Kupec’s districts will see through these deceptive tactics and hold their senators accountable for their votes in 2026.”
“We’ve been sounding the alarm on this ineffective and unconstitutional legislation all session, but the time for action is now. These two bills have made their way into the final omnibus bill and will be up for a final vote within the next week. We will not stand by idly while your constitutional rights are eroded through backroom deals.” – Bryan Strawser, Chairman of the Minnesota Gun Owners Caucus.
