Gun Debate Heats up Again at Legislature
Proposals Would Expand Some Access to Firearms
It’s Gun Day at the Minnesota Legislature.
A House panel was set Thursday morning to debate a handful of proposals that would expand some access to firearms.
There’s a bill to legalize silencers and another that would recognize gun permits from North Dakota in Minnesota.
Separate legislation would automatically allow gun permit owners to carry a firearm into the Capitol.
Owners currently have to notify the state if they plan to bring a weapon inside.
It’s a big change from the last time gun legislation heated up at the Capitol.
Gun rights advocates successfully fought a Democrat-led move to expand background checks after the mass shooting at a Connecticut elementary school in 2013.
