“Governor Walz has consistently shown antagonism towards Minnesota’s law-abiding gun owners by repeatedly calling for gun control, ignoring invitations to our forums, and refusing to complete our candidate surveys, ” stated Rob Doar, Senior Vice President, Government Affairs. “Minnesotans who care about the Second Amendment should choose to support an A-rated candidate at Caucus this week.”
Dr. Jensen received a grade of “?” because based on his inconsistent Second Amendment record, it is difficult to grade his candidacy. In 2016, as a State Senate candidate, he submitted and received an “A (P)” survey and our endorsement then later betrayed his campaign pledges by co-authoring two gun control bills. He later dropped his co-authorship of one bill under pressure from our organization and is now once again asking for the support and trust of Minnesota’s law-abiding gun owners.
“We encourage gun owners to consider Dr. Jensen’s full record and then make a decision for themselves on whether or not he is deserving of their support, ” stated Bryan Strawser, Chairman, Minnesota Gun Owners Caucus.
The Caucus has launched a website, Scott Jensen on Guns – www.scottjensenonguns.com, that provides a factual timeline and source documents of Dr. Jensen’s full record on Second Amendment issues during his time in the Minnesota Senate.
