“Protect Minnesota” is taking it to the streets!
Heather Martens – who, let the record show, has never, not once, said or written a single true, substantive and original thing about guns or gun law – is undertaking one of her last actions as “executive director”
With the Minnesota legislature convening on March 8, now is the time to plug into our plan to stop the gun lobby and build safer communities! Every session, the gun lobby tries to ram through bills like “Shoot First/Stand Your Ground” or carrying pistols without a permit. We’ve been able to stop them year after year — but only because you have shown up.
She’s making things up again. Nobody “showed up”.
“Stand Your Ground” passed the legislature with bipartisan support; it was vetoed by Governor Dayton when Alita Messinger yanked his leash. And that was the only reason Minnesota didn’t join 23 other states that opted to protect the rights of people who resist victimization by criminals and greedy prosecutors.
“Protect” MN’s clubfooted version of activism may have contributed to the good guys almost winning on that issue.
Anyway, they’re going to try to get people to turn up again:
Can you commit to showing up again? [Ha ha ha! – Ed] You’re invited to a meeting near you next week:
In Mahtomedi – Wednesday, February 24, at 6:30 pm — Click here to RSVP
In Saint Paul – Thursday, February 25, at 6:30 pm – Click here to RSVP
In Duluth – Sunday, February 28, a faith summit from 1:30-4:30. Click here to RSVP.
Wanna know something funny? If you try to RSVP, they don’t divulge the locations. They are apparently worried that Real Americans will infiltrate the meetings and…tell the truth? I dunno.
And what can the gentle reader expect?
At these meetings, you will:
- Learn how to pass our background check resolution at your precinct caucus Tuesday, March 1;
- Sign up for face-to-face meetings with key legislators during the session;
- Meet our new executive director!
So wait – “Protect MN” is going to pass a “background check resolution”, to become part of a DFL platform that already calls for gun control?
Sounds like a brilliant use of time and effort!
Oh, yeah – as re the last bullet:
That’s right, I’m stepping out of the executive director role to support Protect MN in other capacities. Watch your email for the full announcement. Meanwhile, see you next week!
If you learn the secret handshake, anyway.
As for me? Heather Martens, I’ll attend your meeting for $1,500.
Thank you for all you do,
The reader most likely “does” nothing – which likely has more effect on politics in MN than “Protect” MN does.
