Why Minnesota?

Minnesota voters have made it clear that support for gun safety legislation is at the top of the list when it comes to the 2020 election. A recent survey from Everytown found that:

  • Voters in Minnesota support stronger gun laws by a 5:1 margin
  • Requiring background checks on all gun sales is the TOP issue among suburban women by a five-point margin
  • 52% of voters would never vote for a candidate who doesn’t support background checks, a mark that ranked third behind only healthcare and national security
  • Nearly 60% of Minnesota voters are less likely to vote for a candidate who opposes a red flag law, while nearly two-thirds of voters are less likely to support someone who stands in the way of background checks for all gun sales
  • More than 50% of Minnesota voters are less likely to vote for a candidate who opposes a red flag law, while nearly two-thirds of voters are less likely to vote for someone who stands in the way of background checks for all gun sales.

In 2018, Minnesotans flipped the Minnesota House of Representatives to a gun sense majority and elected gun sense champion, Governor Tim Walz. Despite the increased support for gun safety laws in the North Star State, the Republican-controlled state Senate refuses to take a vote on background checks or red flag legislation. Republicans in the state legislature have prioritized special interests like the gun lobby and have put the safety of Minnesotans and their families at risk. That is why it is important now, more than ever, to elect a gun sense majority in the state Senate and defend the gun sense majority in the state House.

What is a Gun Sense Candidate?

The Moms Demand Action Gun Sense Candidate distinction lets voters know which candidates will stand up for gun safety if elected into office. Moms Demand Action and Students Demand Action volunteers across the country have been distributing questionnaires to candidates to ensure that those with the Gun Sense Candidate distinction will advocate for safer communities. These candidates have proven that they will support stronger gun laws.
