Pro-gun group's plan to crash Breakfast with Gary Schiff event megafails

Crash or no crash, the mayoral candidate has no qualms with Carry Forum members attending his breakfast event.
Yesterday, the Twin Cities Gun Owners & Carry Forum launched an ingenious plan to crash Friday's Breakfast with Gary Schiff event.

Scheduled to be in attendance along with Schiff is Rep. Jim Davnie, D-Minneapolis. This legislative session, Davnie is sponsoring legislation that would "equalize penalties for offenders unlawfully possessing firearms on school properties and for possessing guns on private properties that prohibit guns," the Minnesota Daily reports.

-- Gary Schiff challenges Bradlee Dean to debate over "Third World" south Mpls comments
-- Gary Schiff wants city of Minneapolis to send Cruz home police bill to PNC Bank

As you'd imagine, the Carry Forum is less than thrilled with that proposal. So they encouraged supporters to attend the breakfast event and asked them to try to catch Schiff and Davnie by surprise -- "DON'T let them know you're going to be there. Catch them off guard."

But there was just one little problem with that strategy. The Carry Forum's "Action Item" was published in a public Facebook post, meaning Schiff was able to learn about the plan with a day to spare. From Schiff's Facebook (click image to enlarge):

As one commenter put it, "Hopefully you're meeting at an establishment that bans guns on their premises."

You might want to go with email next time, guys.

An event that hasn't happened yet has "megafailed?"  

If it's like most gun-grabber "events", the pro-Second-Amendment people will outnumber the gun grabbers.  By a lot.  


Deleting comments is cowardly Aaron.


I like Gary.  I've actively worked to support him, and was there when he won overwhelming support for DFL endorsement in a first round vote.  That said, it's things like this that will make it difficult for me to support his mayoral campaign.  I'll certainly be weighing a lot of pros and cons in the next election cycle.

? What? How could crashing the event fail if the event hasn't happened yet? I'd say it was a mega fail if nobody showed up.

Nice timing Schiff, when most of us are going to work or are already at work. 

Aaron, press these guys a bit to do something when the productive class is not at work. 

I'll see if we can get some young zealots to show up and throw pennies and glitter at him.

Take away law obiding American's guns!!! And give them where they are needed, to the Mexican drug cartels ...



Mr. Schiff's comment on facebook is pretty cool though :D

BTW not Anti or Pro Schiff at this point, more back to picking on you Aaron.. This would be a better story if you'd shown up Tomorrow morning to see what the actual turn out is.

All Schiff is is doing is just dog piling on the most recent "hot topic" He's thinking about proposing a useless law for Mpls?  He's not running for Gov so no state law.. Most of the "Guns prohibited" establishments are not even enforceable because the proper sign isn't being used or posted in the proper place.. BTW when was the last time you saw one?
