Who wants to go to the Gun hearing on Tuesday?

Last night, we scored a major victory toward universal background checks for pistols and assault weapons in Minnesota! In a historic vote, the Senate Judiciary Committee voted 5-3 to send S.F. 458, universal background checks, to the Senate Floor! 

Now the battle is in the House! Can you come to a hearing next Tuesday to get background checks through the Public Safety Committee? Your presence is critical! Can you be there? Click here to RSVP.

Date:  Tuesday, March 19th, 2013
Time: 10:00 AM
Place: Room 10, State Office Building

    Parking will be at a premium. I usually park behind the transportation building. $6.00 a day.

    This is what my friend who works at the Legislature said about tomorrow.
    "Kathi, The room holds about 99 people. There are ony tickets for the testifiers
    No public testamony. They take first come , split 50/50, for and against. There is a over flow foom for watching a big screen. You should come early. I think they will let people start getting in the room at 9:30. We really do not know what to expect....
    I say come early....
    Sam"

      Kathi I didn't see any indication that we were going to be in the gallery. Because it is an actually hearing I think. Keep in mind. I have no role in organizing these things and just copy and paste emails I get. So that is why I give out my phone number. I know as much as you do.

    This is about something more important than gun control.

    Below is a link to a very important and very informative interview from the Charlie Rose Show by Jeremy Grantham. It is an hour interview on the economy, global warming, alternate energy, agriculture, the end of easy resources, population, and the pending world starvation, floods, etc.. His words are still resonating with me a week later.

    He has the money to research and answer the important world questions as Co-founder and Chief Investment Strategist of Grantham Mayo Van Otterloo which has $100 billion under management. http://www.charlierose.com/view/interview/12812 Larry

      I will definitely check it out Larry. I would love it if you just copied and pasted your whole comment and link into the discussion board. That way more people will say it?

    Gun control is equally as important when we consider public safety and the safety of our children. I see there is no public testimony Tues so it won't be as lively perhapas as the last one. Of course if Cornish comments it will.

    I will try to attend

I decided to start Reno Motorcycle Riders Group because I wanted to be part of a group of people who enjoyed my passion... I was excited and nervous. Our group has grown by leaps and bounds. I never thought it would be this big.
