Clash over Minnesota gun laws kicks off in Hibbing

Senate Majority Leader Paul Gazelka met with members of the Minnesota Gun Owners Caucus in April. GOP lawmakers will gather in Hibbing on Tuesday to debate new gun proposals ahead of the Feb. 11 start of the legislative session.

Republicans who control the Minnesota Senate are formulating a package of pro-gun measures for the upcoming session of the Legislature, including proposals to carry firearms without a permit and protect gun owners who fire in self-defense.

The GOP bills taking shape just weeks before the Legislature convenes stand in sharp contrast to DFL plans to expand criminal background checks and institute "red flag" laws allowing the courts to temporarily remove guns from people deemed dangerous to themselves and others.
