NEW NON-PARTISAN SINGLE-ISSUE POLITICAL ACTION COMMITTEE TO FOCUS ON SUPPORTING PRO-SECOND AMENDMENT LAWMAKERS AND CANDIDATES IN MINNESOTA
(Saint Paul, MN) - Today, a new non-partisan single issue political action committee has launched in Minnesota focusing on supporting pro-Second Amendment lawmakers and candidates seeking state and federal office in Minnesota.
“The Minnesota Gun Owners Political Action Committee was formed following the end of the 2013 Minnesota legislative session, “ said Mark Okern, Chairman. “Over multiple days of hearings, law abiding gun owners heard proposal after proposal that would have taken away their ability to protect themselves, hunt, and enjoy the shooting sports while having no impact on gun violence.”
The Minnesota Gun Owners Political Action Committee will mobilize Minnesotans to support pro-Second Amendment candidates through grassroots efforts. The PAC also plans to endorse and financially support candidates in the primary and general elections in Minnesota’s 2014 elections for the legislature and statewide offices.
Bryan Strawser, Treasurer, said of the organization:
“We know that political interests outside of Minnesota have funded gun control lobbying and legislation here for years. The Minnesota Gun Owners Political Action Committee, however, is supported and led by the same Minnesotans that showed up at the legislature by the hundreds this year to protest against ineffective gun control proposals that would have adversely impacted their civil rights. “
The Minnesota Gun Owners Political Action Committee is based in Saint Paul, Minnesota.
