Basically this bill says if we protect our home with force, even deadly force, we can not be held up to criminal prosecution.

I sent an email to my Rep. was easy with the attached names and email adresses

Basically, we should be able to defend our family and homes from thugs without being held liable. A Big Thumbs up for home defense!!!!!!!

A well armed civilian is the best defense against criminals.

And a Good Labrador grin.gif

The NRA!!! are last defense against the people who want to take away are guns. God help us all if the Anti's ever succeed!!!

This is a good bill, but stands little to no chance with our bleeding heart DFL controlled legislature... I'm not sure its even worth the effort but we'll see.

Nice defeatist attitude. How about you call or email your representavive and let them know how you feel. Maybe you can sway them.

I said, but we'll see. You got any faith in this bunch of bozos we have in St. Paul??? They wouldn't even give this bill a hearing before and they haven't scheduled it for one in the senate as far as I've seen and I'll be shocked if they do...

Anything is possible if enough people get involved!!!

I think alot of people live in there own little world thinking nothing will ever happen but little by little our rights our slipping away.Then when something is taken away from us everyone is in shock.We as sportsman have to keep speaking up and fighting for our rights that our forefathers fought and died to give us. My son is a veteran of the iraq war and i want to see him and his kids have the same freedoms that ive enjoyed because of people like my son that have fought for whats right. My son joined for the very reasons i'm talking about he felt he owed it to his country that are forefathers fought to keep alive for us and to be called an AMERICAN, he's earned it. All soldiers have earned it!!!!!!!!!My son still believes in the principles of the constitution that our country was built

Only we can change whats happening in this country. If enough people were to get involved. Sorry ive written a book here,but if everyone turns a deaf ear freedoms we enjoy now are going to be taken away you mark my words. What future do our kids have or our grandkids and on and on in generations to come.Look at our country it's History and what we stand for is slipping away.

Emails sent!

This is very big in my opinion!

To be prosecuted for defending your own home/family is flat out ludicrous.

You step foot in my home, you better know that the consequences are potentially deadly. Maybe make some thugs think twice......

Did you know that approximatly 64 million americans support and feel they are with the NRA when there are only about 4 million that are really members! Its only $25 bucks if you find somewhere like shootingusa.com to help pay for your dues. This is just the start of firearms legislation both locally and nationally this year. There are people out there who think you are a criminal for defending yourself or loved ones with a firearm, this is important, let the bozos know where you stand. Don't complain about the results if you don't voice your opinion to the people making the decisions.

Well said SmilinBob!!!!!!!

And i busted a gut on your quote

at the bottom. K pow Good stuff grin.gif

I like this one also, PETA stands for people eating tasty animals grin.gif

It's good to see some people are worried about are rights as gun owners and are willing to take action.

It's being proven that you take away guns from the public and crime goes up. It's happening in Britain.

Heard on the radio that the committee vote was a tie - because one member left the hearing to "powder her nose" so she wouldn't have to cast a tie-breaking vote.

The bill has been tabled for the year.

I'll see if I can dig up the names over the weekend.

Sad part is the cops do not even get the benefit of the doubt anymore. How many times does a criminal get shot by a police officer defending us and the action is percieved to be excessive use of force. Now consider a private citizen in a park and a criminal tries to mug him/her and the mugger is shot. The public will assume the mugger was innocent and the shooter acted unnecesarily. If the police cant get a break the private citizen will not either.

I just can not beleave that it is ok to shoot someone breaking into your house (in the act of a felony). But then you can get sued by the hunyucks family civily and they can take you for everything. Why is there even a debate. They need to pass this.

No one has ever been charged with shooting someone in their own home during a break-in. A problem with this bill is that it lets someone shoot first and ask later - with even someone knocking on your door.

I talked to a rep. who said "imagine how many politicians that would be shot door knocking." I told him it would be justified because he was trying to raise my taxes and thus hurting me.

This bill should have started with the basic - if someone breaks into your home stance.

      The stearms in the arrowhead are small very small I would recommend a 6 foot or short rod for most streams as you will be pitching your bait out. They are also over grown with brush wading these streams is a challenge. You will be fishing for mostly brook trout above the first posted boundary FYI it’s normally a large water fall but not always. Also the first week of June there will not be much from the lake to the first posted boundary anyways. Remember there special regs below the first posted boundary and the above the first posted boundary.  If you want to use your fly rod I would hit the small trout lakes in the area. A split shot and small chunk of crawler is my go to bait for Brookies. There are a few streams with some browns and rainbows but very few. If you are fly fishing look at Thompson lake by  devilstrack lake it’s catch and release. Mink lake, kimball lake are also good.

      Growing up in South Dakota I did quite a bit of fishing in the black hills for browns and rainbows, most of that fishing was best accomplished with a long pole and just drifting my bait down the stream if you can read the eddies and slacks in the water you should do fine.  Of course I'm assuming they bite the same up north as they do out west.  It was a kick when I went  back out there 2 years ago and on Sunday morning fished the little 6 ft wide stream running behind the campground, all the other campers were amazed that I would pull out a fish about every 20-30 ft no monsters but plenty of little beauties at 7-10 inches. If the water is clean and the fish are there you just gotta find out what they are eating at that time of year.  Hopefully this helps and if I'm wrong some of the guys with Minnesota experience will pipe up.

      I do a bit of fishing from the coon rapids dam on down to 694 and I usually bring 2 rods because I lose at least one lure to the rocks. Bear that in mind and also realize that there are nice smallies, eyes and cats in that stretch of river. I also had over 3 feet of pike eat my stink bait I had out for channel cats. If I didn't have a circle hook on it would have been a nice pic to share. Good luck and hope to hear of some good luck.

      It would take a lot of code to make multiple windows tiling the screen work, would be my guess, and would create few additional sales so isn't worth the expenses.    Just pick up an inexpensive 5 to 7 inch unit and use it for the map.

      You look like the Phantom Fisherman - except the toes.  Or maybe the River Detective  🕵️‍♂️ Gotta love those good runs in short times!   
    • Bryan P
      Awesome Eyeguy! That is a good run of smallies there. I like your spot, that was my favorite fishing stretch for them when I lived in St cloud. Mississippi is such a great smallie fishery. Im blessed to live right next to it too. Now lets get the current to go down some! 
    • eyeguy 54
      I LOVE SMALLIES !  LOL  I am blessed to live close to so much fun.

      Spent a couple hours on Elysian this afternoon.  Drove around some shallow areas on the south east end of the lake with the trolling motor and only saw carp. Water is still unusually clear for this lake, at any time of the year, and 79 degrees near shore. May be a great opportunity for a bow fisherman, even in the daylight. Tried soaking minnows in a hole on the north end with no luck.

      My choice would be Namakan, but honestly that’s mostly based on emotion. It’s where my dad and I fished the most while up there. I also think it’s prettier than Kab.  I’ve never been on Sand Point or Crane. Just my two cents. I’ll be up there one week from today. Staying on the Ash River if anyone would care to enjoy a cold one first round is on my buddy. 😁
