Our Mission

The mission of the Minnesota Gun Owners Political Action Committee is to support Pro-Second Amendment candidates and lawmakers in Minnesota. We also work to pass pro-gun legislation in partnership with the National Rifle Association & the Gun Owners Civil Rights Alliance.

2015 Legislative Successes:

  • Passed a bill stripping the governor of his ability to violate your Second Amendment rights during a "State of Emergency".
  • Passed a bill removing the redundant requirement to notify the Commissioner of Public Safety that you intend to carry a firearm at the State Capitol using your Permit to Carry.
  • Passed a bill legalizing firearm suppressors for all lawful purposes in Minnesota.
  • Passed a bill simplifying the reciprocity process in Minnesota for Permits to Carry.
  • Passed a bill making it clear that Minnesotans could purchase a long gun from a dealer in all 49 other states.

2016 Campaign Goals:

  • Protect the Pro-Second Amendment majority in the Minnesota House of Representatives
  • Elect Pro-Second Amendment candidates to the Minnesota Senate
  • Defeat anti-gun candidates in the Minnesota House & Senate

2016 Campaign Plan:

  • Mobilize Minnesota's more than 2.5 million gun owners to the polls to support our endorsed candidates
  • Endorse & financially support Pro-Second Amendment candidates for the state legislature
  • Spend independently as appropriate to support our endorsed candidates and defeat anti-gun candidates across the state
