Urge your friends to find the House booth and vote NO in this poll.

Quote:
MINNESOTA HOUSE OF REPRESENTATIVES
PUBLIC INFORMATION SERVICES
175 State Office Building
100 Rev. Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. Blvd.
St. Paul, MN 55155

FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE
Date: Aug. 19, 2010

Fairgoers invited to weigh in on guns, higher education costs and Vikings' stadium
Legislators to meet and greet at the Minnesota State Fair

Fairgoers can let their opinion be known on a number of issues by participating in the annual Minnesota State Fair Poll at the House of Representatives' booth during the fair’s 12-day run, Aug. 26- Sept. 6.

This year's questions include firearms at gun shows, tax breaks for small businesses, costs at public colleges and universities, and public funding for a new stadium to house the Minnesota Vikings.

Although not scientific, ballot results give a heads up to what Minnesotans think about some high-profile issues. A list of this year’s poll questions is available on the House website, www.house.mn. Poll results should be available on the House website Sept. 7.

Located in the Education Building on Cosgrove Street just north of Dan Patch Avenue, the booth will be stocked with information to introduce fairgoers to state government and to help them better understand the legislative process.

Will do. Everybody? Please? You're going to the Fair, anyway, aren't you?

I hope everyone that goes to the fair will vote "No" on this poll. A most resounding "NO!".

Foot long hot dog? There are worse:

This looks like bad news. The way the question is phrased it seems like a continuum of existing rules. Most folks have never bought a gun from a non-FFL at a gunshow and would not know that it cannot be done unless the seller is an FFL.

It plays right into the "loophole" strategy our opponents have established.

Are you actually saying that you cannot legally buy a gun from a non FFL at a gunshow?

If that is what you're saying, you are wrong. Private purchase is as legal at a gunshow as it is everywhere else.

No, what I mean is that a Fudd will agree with this without thinking. He's always bought guns from dealers, and maybe traded with his buddies. It's an innocuous question, and they'll probably get 80% agreement. That "agreement" amoung Minnesotans will be used to push the gunshow bill next session.
