Senate Republican Majority Leader Sen. Paul Gazelka (R-Nisswa)

Minnesota Senate Majority Leader Paul Gazelka, a leading gun rights advocate, says he would hold hearings on any gun legislation that passes the House, providing a slight opening for a pair of Democratic proposals to expand criminal background checks and adopt a "red flag law."

"It hasn't been a priority of ours, but what I will say is if the House passes universal background check and red flag laws off the floor, I am committed to giving those bills and other gun bills a hearing in the Senate," Gazelka told the Star Tribune in an interview.
