Gun Control Bills Introduced at Capitol

Year after year, gun control advocates have pushed for stricter access to guns in Minnesota. The 2019 Legislative Session may be their best chance in years to get legislation passed. 


Two gun control bills were introduced this week at the Capitol. One would expand background checks, while the other would enact a "red flag" law where a loved one or law enforcement could push to restrict a person's access to guns if they're considered a threat to themselves or others.

While support is growing for these gun control measures, there is still expected to be strong opposition from gun owners.
