Minnesota Lawmakers Want Public To Fund Gun Control

posted on March 2, 2017

Some Minnesota state Senate Democrats are pushing for a measure that would fund activities of anti-gun groups with public funds.

State Sen. Jeff Hayden has introduced legislation, SF 12763, that would direct the state commissioner of human services to develop an awards process for $200,000 in annual grants that non-profit anti-gun groups could apply for. The measure was cheered by Everytown for Gun Safety and Moms Demand Action—two groups that would probably love to get an easy $200K, at least some of it straight out of the pockets of law-abiding Minnesota gun owners.

Bryan Strawser, chairman of the Minnesota Gun Owners Caucus, spoke out against the legislation. “We were sorry to hear of the loss that Senator Hayden’s family has suffered with the tragic murder of his sister last year,” Strawser said. “However, what was proposed last week is more of the same tired old gun control strategies of the past brought out from the same groups, with the same messaging, and the same falsehoods.”
