Yet more gun confiscation legislation has been proposed. This time, H.F. No. 241 in Minnesota would give owners of certain legally owned "assault weapons" until September 1st to "surrender" their firearm to the state or face "prosecution."
Similar legislation has been proposed in Missouri and would make felons out of law-abiding citizens if they opted to keep their legally owned firearms. As revealed by the Gateway Pundit, the proposed legislation in Minnesota has "nearly identical language as the Missouri bill," and even extends to those who may have received the weapon as an inheritance, as reported by Joe Newby of the Examiner.
For those that ridicule the idea that some lawmakers and anti-second amendment activists want to ultimately confiscate all firearms, think again. Like those who published lists of legal gun owners in several publications recently, the disdain for weapons in general is apparent.
The gun confiscation legislation in Minnesota should be challenged by those who believe, as Thomas Jefferson did, that citizens have a "right and duty to be at all times armed." American citizens are also "entitled to freedom of person, freedom of religion, freedom of property, and freedom of the press."
