You know me.
I”m an uncompromising proponent of 2nd Amendment rights.
And so it was with horror that I saw the MNGOP last week attacking the Dorr Brothers – the purveyors of “Minnesota Gun Rights”, as well as a pro-life and pro-Trump group – last week.
One could call it defamation – saying something untrue about someone, that’ll harm their reputation in the community, with malicious disregard for the facts.
I’ve publicly urged the Dorr Brothers (Facebook link and on the air) to take their case against the MNGOP to court, to lay the record out in public – the financial records proving their nonstop advocacy for gun rights – and forever shut down the allegations that they are just a bunch of hucksters fleecing gullible Minnesotans with aggressive rhetoric (always aimed at pro-gun Republicans, almost never at anti-Gun Democrats.
I’m not sure if they took my advice and filed those papers yet.
But while I wait for word, I thought I’d point out the toll that this effort has taken on the Dorrs. They posted this yesterday:
Those personal attacks are really a sign of desperation.
Like this one, before the 2019 legislative session, aimed at Bryan Strawer and Rob Doar, the director and lobbyist for the MN Gun Owners Caucus, respectively.
Again. Here’s hoping the Dorrs take their case to court, and throw those books open, to defend their legacy of rigorous integrity.
