MN State Lawmakers Tout Gun Safety Bills Following Burnsville Shooting

(St. Paul, MN) — State lawmakers are pushing new gun safety bills following a deadly shooting in Burnsville last weekend. DFL lawmakers talked about the bills yesterday during an event sponsored by the group Protect Minnesota. One bill would require gun owners to report a firearm missing or stolen within 48 hours or face a possible misdemeanor charge. Another bill would require guns and ammunition to be kept separately in locked storage containers, while a third would invest federal funds in violence prevention in Minnesota communities. Some Republican lawmakers are reportedly skeptical, saying the state should enforce laws already on the books before making new ones.
