ACT Today to Support Gun Control

Posted on the 28 March 2013 by Doggone
There was a blog set up to address the 'lies' told by Heather Martens and Joan Peterson of Protect Minnesota and by me.  So's empty; no lies, no rebuttal, no criticism.

That's because we are factually accurate. That's because we are logical, and represent the majority of Americans, including gun owners, and the gun huggers are neither logical or factual.
Here is the latest from Protect Minnesota, I hope you will join us in acting:

Protect Minnesota: Preventing Gun Injuries and Deaths
 Dear Friend,
Today, Thursday, March 28, is National Day of Action for gun violence prevention! Be part of demanding action from Congress on this day! Here's what you can do:

Call Rep. Erik Paulsen at (952) 405-8510
Tell him you support background checks for all gun sales; a ban on assault weapons and high capacity magazines; and making gun trafficking a crime.

In Minnesota, we need to send the same message for state action to Rep. Paul Thissen at (651) 296-5375, and Sen. Tom Bakk at (651) 296-8881.

After you've made these calls, click here to thank Sens. Al Franken and Amy Klobuchar for supporting gun violence prevention!
This morning at a press conference to demand action, Minneapolis Mayor R.T. Rybak, Chaska Police Chief Scott Knight and Accent Signage shooting survivor John Souter will speak. Watch for reports after the 9:30 a.m. news conference at the Hennepin County Library in Minnetonka.
Thank you for all you do,

Heather Martens
Executive Director, Protect Minnesota
