Anti-gun State Representative Michael Paymar (DFL-64B) intends to offer an amendment that would severely regulate the sale of firearms at gun shows in Minnesota.  His amendment would regulate the sale of all firearms at gun shows across Minnesota by forcing all private sales at gun shows to go through a background check.  Gun prohibitionists, such as Representative Paymar, falsely claim that many criminals get guns from gun shows, but the most recent federal study puts the figure at only 0.7 percent.  This effort is a stepping stone for anti-gun advocates seeking to ban all private sales, even among family and friends.

  • has he ever been to a gun show?! Of all the shows I go to, the buyers I’ve seen are usually collectors, and most of them are senior citizens. The others are people like me who are enthusiasts, and are interested in protection for our homes and families. I’ve never seen anything close to a shady character. We are there mainly to look at and talk about guns with the other people. And once in a while we may buy one.
