    Sorry bri. Never intended to offend. Just reporting the truth of my experience.

    Just sent emails to my senator and my MN representative voicing my displeasure. Debating whether or not to write Gov. Dayton. And maybe the members of the house idiot committee (Public Safety.)

    I've already made a pest of myself to Senators Franken and Klobuchar and to Tim Walz regarding the Feinstein bill and anything like it that might come along.

    They are having hearings on new laws next week. No announcement on when they will be voting. GOCRA-MN is the best resource we have in this issue. Here is the latest e-mail they sent out.

    Scandinavian socialism post-dates Scandinavian immigration to the US. Most of the Scandinavians who wound up in the US came here for the same general reason other European populations came here -- carving a life out of the frontier was preferable to starvation, negligible economic prospects even if you weren't starving, and dealing with other forms of repression back home.

    I suspect that the Populist/socialist leanings in that part of the US today have more to do with the Dust Bowl not decimating the adherents to that line of political reasoning in Minnesota, Michigan, etc., the way it did further south. (There may even be some argument that the influx of destitute farmers from the southern Great Plains into California helped create the Workers Paradise that now prevails there, but maybe that's stretching things . . .)

    Sigh....

    probably about that time to send another series of emails to my reps...

    I do worry about smaller initiatives on the part of states, cities, or even towns.

    On the other hand, Texas has about 11 pro-gun bills in committee and no anti-gun bills. And, you don't need a snow shovel here either.

    If this crap passes, I won't be able to drive through MN to get to the UP of MI any longer. I can't drive through IL because I would be considered a felon by the guns I carry with me.........chris3

    I don't live in Minnesota, thank goodness from a gun perspective, but I have a feeling we are all going to end up in Texas someday. It may prove to be our Alamo. :(

    Can someone post a list of the bills that have been introduced and that are going to vote?
