No dout there are political opportunities for some Minnesota legislators in the gun control debate that's now unfolding. Here's a website called GunRights.mn that features a stirring photo of Rep. Steve Drakowski in front of a field of flags (presumably in Zumbrota last summer).
It's impossible to tell who or what organization is behind the website or where it's based. Here's what it says on the "About Us" page:
Started by a couple of law abiding Minnesota gun owners, now GunRights.MN is growing into a broad coalition of pro gun-rights activists who stand united against any attempt to infringe on a law-abiding individual’s right to keep and bear arms. Please contact us by email at info@GunRights.MN.
The site is promoting the Firearm Protection Act, which Drazkowski and 17 other Minnesota House members are putting forward as a way to pre-empt at the state level whatever Congress chooses to do.
According to the bill, “any new federal law designed to ban or limit any personal firearm, magazine, accessory, or ammunition or to require the registration of any firearm or firearm owner shall be unenforceable.”
Actually, I believe it's this bill that would be unenforceable, at least until the U.S. constitution is rewritten to give Minnesota law a unique exemption.
