Minorities are joining the rush to buy guns in Minnesota

 


Abdul Yusuf and Jamal Abdulahi hadn’t seen the need before, but a few weeks after the November election the two men went to a gun store and started the paperwork for permits to carry.

They are among the Muslims and members of other minority groups who are joining the ranks of Minnesotans who applied to become gun owners in 2016.

For Abdulahi, it’s a natural response to an uptick in hate crimes since the election of Donald Trump.
