As introduced to the house for the 2011 Legislative session
https://www.revisor.mn.gov/bin/bldbill. ... ssion=ls87

Quick Overview:

Adds Stand Your Ground
HR1467, authored by long-time gun rights advocate Representative Tony Cornish (R - Good Thunder), brings �Stand Your Ground� protections to Minnesota, removing the requirement that an intended victim of violent crime must retreat from a place where he has a right to be before using deadly force in self defense.

Enhances Castle Doctrine
The bill also strengthens Minnesota's �Castle Doctrine�, clarifying when and under what circumstances an individual may use deadly force to protect themselves and their homes and vehicles. In addition, it creates a presumption that, when faced with an apparent home invasion or kidnapping attempt, a person may use deadly force in self defense.

Prevents Gun Seizures During a State of Emergency
Taking a lesson from the problems in New Orleans after Hurricane Katrina, the bill also bans government agencies from seizing guns or ammo, revoking permits to purchase or carry, or closing gun shops, during a civil emergency or for any other reason. It also prohibits law enforcement officers from seizing a persons gun, unless for the person is arrested, or the gun is evidence of a crime.

Extends Purchase Permits to Five Years
The bill also extends the validity of handgun purchase permits from one to five years, adds an annual background check for people holding those five-year permits. It requires the Minnesota Department of Human Services and state courts to make their background check records available electronically to authorized agencies, including the National Instant Background Check system (NICS) -- a process that was supposed to have been in place 16 years ago! This should reduce purchasing delays as well as ensuring that state and federal checks produce the same results.

The bill also borrows a page from the Permit to Carry law, providing a more robust appeal process for denied purchase permits, and requiring that police chiefs and sheriffs whose purchase permit denials are overturned must pay the applicants legal costs.

Adds Universal Carry Permit Reciprocity
Of particular interest to carry permit holders, the final article of the bill updates our carry permit reciprocity standards, allowing people holding carry permits from any other state to carry in Minnesota (under Minnesota law, of course). This should result in a large increase in the number of states where Minnesota permit holders can carry, since many states allow other states permit holders to carry on a reciprocal basis.

Major Pro-Gun Bill Passed in Committee and Referred to the House Judiciary Committee for Consideration!



Earlier today, House File 1467 passed in the House Public Safety and Crime Prevention Policy and Finance Committee by a 10 to 7 vote. HB 1467 has now been sent to the House Judiciary Committee, where they are expected to take action next week. While the date or time has not been set, please begin contacting committee members today and urge them to support this comprehensive reform.

Now lets just hope that another group of people have two bits of common sense about them and let HR1467 pass all the way through.

Anything useful we can do at this late date? (Wish I'd known about this earlier). Any call-in, email-in campaigns that would make an impression?

Probably not. If there were, say, 100,000 people across the state willing to do what we did (and more) back in 2005, there's probably not enough time in the lege to make it all happen there . . . and, if we did, I just don't see how Dayton's veto could be overridden.

I think this kind of reform is, at best, at least four years of hard work.
