Tuesday, April 27, 4 p.m.-5:30 p.m.

On behalf of the LWVMN Firearms Update Study Committee, I am delighted to invite you to hear from two experts on timely issues related to gun violence: Josh Horwitz, J.D., Executive Director of The Coalition to Stop Gun Violence in Washington D.C. and co-author of “Guns, Democracy and the Insurrectionist Idea” and John Choi, J.D., Ramsey County Attorney. See below for link to register for event. Please do so ASAP so you can be sure to get a ticket (it’s free, but participation is limited to the first 300 people to register), and share the information with your fellow League members and other interested friends.  

Domestic Terrorism and Threats to Democracy  

The storming of the Capitol on January 6 and the earlier plot to kidnap the Governor of Michigan were frightening demonstrations of threats to our democracy posed by domestic extremists and self-styled militia groups. In the 21st century, how do differing views of the Second Amendment affect our concept of personal liberty and community? What is the role of firearms in a pluralistic society? 

Several counties in Minnesota have become “Second Amendment Sanctuary Counties” or “Second Amendment Dedicated Counties”. The Minnesota Gun Owners Caucus is providing support for local activists to pressure county commissioners and state legislators to prevent new firearms laws, such as background checks or red flag laws and to not enforce some current gun laws.  The “Constitutional Sheriffs and Peace Officers Association” is a national group pushing the idea that law enforcement can defy the government and not enforce gun laws.  

Come join us on Tuesday, April 27, 4 p.m.-5:30 p.m., to hear Josh Horwitz, J.D., Executive Director of The Coalition to Stop Gun Violence in Washington DC and co-author of “Guns, Democracy, and the Insurrectionist Idea” share his insights. Also speaking will be: John Choi, Ramsey County District Attorney who will provide local perspective on firearm issues in Minnesota and how they’re dealt with.
