Whereas: Law-abiding gun owners have a God-given right to self-defense -- and should be able to exercise that right WITHOUT fear of prosecution or bankruptcy; and
Whereas: Under current Minnesota law, gun owners can be sued and prosecuted by criminals simply for defending themselves or their loved ones against criminal attack; and
Whereas: Under current Minnesota law, even if you survive an attack on your life you have few civil protections, which oftentimes results in innocent citizens being forced to spend thousands of dollars to defend themselves all over again in the courtroom; and
Whereas: A Minnesota Stand-Your-Ground would simply acknowledge the right of law-abiding gun owners in Minnesota to defend themselves and their loved ones against criminal invasion or attack without facing prosecution, WHEREVER they have a legal right to be; and
Therefore: On behalf of law-abiding gun owners across the great state of Minnesota, I urge you to cosponsor and seek record, roll call votes on the Minnesota Stand-Your-Ground Bill, with no weakening amendments.
