Gov. Tim Walz said Monday he would ask Republican Senate Majority Leader Paul Gazelka to hold hearings on gun measures this fall, following the latest mass shootings in Ohio and Texas.

"I will make the call once again, pleadingly, can we at least have a hearing? Can we at least discuss this?" Walz said, adding that he is open to listening to different ideas about how to combat gun violence. "I just think the deafening silence of not doing anything, of rejecting the call to hold a hearing, it simply can't go on any longer."
