We're sick of reposting these examples to the always available hypocrites in MN who bemoan "gun violence."

We hereby dismantle ANY argument from ANY Minnesota public official, representative or activist who calls for new gun laws and more gun control.

Reason 88,752 why we NEVER link to mainstream #MNmedia.


Once again, @StarTribune and @smontemayor are trying to manufacture consent and faux outrage to support their puppet masters' agendas.

@StarTribune & @smontemayor want you to believe that stolen guns & straw purchased guns are "legally bought guns" being used in crimes.

These are outright lies and false narratives.

Straw purchasing, dealing arms without a license, and burglary/stealing ARE NOT LEGAL.
Furthermore, @StarTribune and @smontemayor have MISERABLY FAILED in their duty to tell you the truth about the overwhelming failures in our @MNCourts systems that have led to most of the tragedies they listed in this piece of rotten tripe "reporting."

Accomplice Hans Madave, 19, of New Hope is still on the loose.
The driver of the getaway vehicle, L. W., who was arrested last week has been released without charges even though he told police Sirleaf told him he was planning a robbery and fully participated with Sirleaf's instructions before the robbery.

DEMAND @HennepinAtty charge L.W.
