SAINT PAUL, MINN. December 21, 2015 – Today, The Minnesota Gun Owners Political Action Committee launched a new nonprofit advocacy organization focused on grassroots political activism, firearms safety, and legal action with the intent of protecting and advancing the constitutional rights of Minnesota's two-and-a-half million law-abiding gun owners.
"Today, we are announcing the launch of the Minnesota Gun Owners Caucus, a new 501(c)(4) nonprofit advocacy organization focused on grassroots advocacy, firearms safety education, gun rights legislation, and where necessary, legal action to protect and advance the constitutional rights of Minnesota's two-and-a-half-million law-abiding gun owners, " said Bryan Strawser, Executive Director.
The Minnesota Gun Owners Caucus will work to mobilize Minnesotans to advocate for gun rights issues, conduct education programs in order to improve firearms safety, pursue legislation in Saint Paul, and take legal action, where appropriate, to defend and advance Second Amendment issues in Minnesota.
"The Minnesota Gun Owners Caucus will be a member-oriented gun rights organization that is constantly working to defend the constitutional rights of gun owners in Minnesota," added Strawser.
Rob Doar, Vice President & Political Director, said of the organization:
"In the 2014 elections, Minnesotans sent a strong message by rejecting politicians that supported failed gun control policies and electing a pro-Second Amendment legislature, " said Doar. "Now it's time to amplify the voices of gun owners and work to ensure that their voices are heard and their constitutional rights are respected not just in Saint Paul, but throughout the entire state."
With this change, the Minnesota Gun Owners Political Action Committee will be realigned as a political fund and fully integrated into the Minnesota Gun Owners Caucus.
Minnesota Gun Owners Caucus is a grassroots nonprofit dedicated to the full restoration of our firearms freedoms in Minnesota. The organization focuses on grassroots advocacy, firearms safety education, gun rights legislation, and where necessary, legal action to protect the constitutional rights of Minnesota's two-and-a-half-million law-abiding gun owners.
