To Carry or Not to Carry

A gun was in plain view on an opponent of new gun laws being debated a year ago in the House Public Safety Committee in the State Office Building in St.

Did you know?

Minnesota Association of Defensive Firearm Instructors, “177,777 “State of Minnesota Permit to Carry a Pistol” were issued in September of 2014. Every month, MADFI requests and publishes the number of active Minnesota carry permits from the Minnesota Department of Public Safety.” (MAFI.org)

Don’t Blame the Many for the actions of a few.

Firearms and violence are usually connected in many negative news reports. Sadly, firearm owners, firearm dealers, and current residents of Minnesota with valid Permit to Carry a Pistol are held responsible for the negligent actions of individuals not deemed qualified to own or use a firearm. The media of course should be held responsible for the inaccurate reporting and biased opinion of news articles to the public. Here is a prime example.

Minnesota does not have a “Concealed Carry Permit”. It is called a State of Minnesota Permit to Carry a Pistol.

As a valid registered permit holder,

I support the continued efforts to keep and maintain the laws that authorized Minnesota residents to obtain a permit to carry a pistol and purchase a firearm. I also support the continued efforts to ensure the safety for the public by keeping the strict requirements to obtain the permits needed to purchase and/or carry a pistol.
