Libertarian activists make splash at Capitol hearings

With several new gun control proposals under consideration by the legislature, Libertarians gained a high profile by speaking publicly in defense of the freedom of all peaceful, responsible people to own firearms. Videos of their testimony are included below.

The three days of public hearings in St Paul drew significant opposition to new legislation infringing on the freedom to bear arms. Libertarian leaders took front stage, emphasizing the right to self-defense, the misguidedness of restrictions which target responsible citizens who've harmed no one, and offering a liberty-based solution to help prevent violence at schools.

LPMN urges restoration of self-defense at schools

In the aftermath of the recent senseless tragedy at a Connecticut school, legislators in both Washington and St Paul are gearing up to "do something". The Libertarian Party of Minnesota is proposing a solution to bolster school safety, while defending the ability of responsible individuals to bear arms.

By a 7-0 vote, the LPMN Executive Committee unanimously passed a resolution calling for federal and state legislators to repeal the prohibition on self-defense by teachers and other adults on school grounds, to resist misguided legislation that further erodes freedom, and to stand up for the right of all peaceful, responsible adults to defend themselves. We believe that violence is best addressed by expanding liberty, not by further restricting it.

Ron Paul coordinators join LPMN leadership

After years of battling within the GOP in the hopes that the cause of liberty might be taken seriously by its leaders and candidates, some activists from Ron Paul's movement turned to the LPMN. They found a very different reception!

Three of Ron Paul's Minnesota coordinators realized that liberty had reached the end of the line in the Republican Party after their national convention in Tampa, Florida. Recognizing that a consistent voice for liberty is what's needed in today's debate, and that Libertarians are uniquely positioned to reach out to both the Right and the Left to promote the benefits of freedom, they approached the Libertarian Party.
