This group is a shell "grassroots" org set up and organized by a former Monsanto PR representative. It is near wholly funded by Michael Bloomberg.

Exactly, Pat. On this anniversary of the Newtown tragedy, today a real Minnesota grassroots group gathered at a coffee shop in the Payne-Phalen neighborhood where Ray Widstrand was beaten nearly to death by gangbangers 4 months ago. We took time to reflect on how both were situations where effective self defense was not present, and in the case of Newtown wasn't even allowed. That's wrong, and this is why we continue to take action to empower individuals, share truth and strengthen the law abiding gun owners' community. End gun free killing zones. That's common sense.
