Second Amendment Shredding?

We recently received an email (below) regarding Minnesota's Proctor City Council views on the Second Amendment. Initially there was apparent broad support, until one councilor decided to propose various amendments. If you read these you will see just how much the aforementioned councilor wanted to impose deep restrictions - Section 7 in particular taking the breath away. These are typical of many who wish to interfere with rights and trying to eviscerate the 2A.
The results of the meeting referred to on 7/18/16 fortunately returned a vote of 0 for and 5 against.We will give more details later, plus some details of the original resolution.

Dear Friends,

At the Proctor (Minnesota) City Council meeting on July 5th the City Council passed a Resolution reaffirming our 2nd Amendment rights. One of the Councilors tried to amend the Resolution to include language that would restrict our rights, luckily the motion to amend the Resolution failed to receive a second and failed.

That's the good news, unfortunately, here is the bad news. At the upcoming Proctor City Council meeting on July 18th at 6:00pm, that same Councilor intends on introducing an Amendment to the original Resolution that will encourage even greater restrictions on our 2nd Amendment rights.

If you live in Proctor and support your 2nd Amendment rights, I encourage you to attend and show your support. If you don't live in Proctor but know a gun rights supporter that does, please encourage them to attend and show their support.

Here is the proposed Amendment to the original Resolution:




WHEREAS, it is important to protect the citizens of the United States from harm while adhering to the Second Amendment, and

WHEREAS, gun violence should not be tolerated,

WHEREAS, it is government responsibility to enhance public safety by tightening existing laws in a responsible and focused manner, while protecting the rights of law-abiding gun owners,

NOW, THEREFORE, IT IS HEREBY RESOLVED by the City Council of the City of Proctor as follows,

Section 1. The City Council of Proctor supports, restricting possession of ammunition magazines that hold more than 10 rounds.

Section 2. The City Council of Proctor supports, regulates the sale of ammunition by requiring sellers to be licensed, buyers to undergo background checks and transactions to be recorded.

Section 3. The City Council of Proctor proposes, allowing weapons that already are owned with "bullet buttons" that make it easy to detach magazines that are Minnesota compliant, but prohibiting "bullet buttons" on new weapons.

Section 4. The City Council of Proctor proposes, limiting the lending of guns to non-family members who have not completed background checks.

Section 5. The City Council of Proctor proposes, preventing gun sales to anyone on the government's "No Fly List" for terrorism suspect.

Section 6. The City Council of Proctor proposes, preventing the sale of "green tip" SS109 and M855 cartridges.

Section 7. The City Council of Proctor proposes, amending the Second Amendment to conform to the original intent of its draftsmen: "A well-regulated Militia, being necessary to the security of a free State, the right of the people to keep and bear Arms when serving in the Militia shall not be infringed."

Section 8. The City Council of Proctor proposes, requiring background checks for online sales and at guns shows.

"You don't have to be Jewish to fight by our side."
