Don’t Blame the Many for the actions of a few.
Firearms and violence are usually connected in many negative news reports. Sadly, firearm owners, firearm dealers, and current residents of Minnesota with valid Permit to Carry a Pistol are held responsible for the negligent actions of individuals not deemed qualified to own or use a firearm. The media of course should be held responsible for the inaccurate reporting and biased opinion of news articles to the public. Here is a prime example.
Minnesota does not have a “Concealed Carry Permit”. It is called a State of Minnesota Permit to Carry a Pistol.
As a valid registered permit holder,
I support the continued efforts to keep and maintain the laws that authorized Minnesota residents to obtain a permit to carry a pistol and purchase a firearm. I also support the continued efforts to ensure the safety for the public by keeping the strict requirements to obtain the permits needed to purchase and/or carry a pistol.
2014 MN Statutes: 624.714 CARRYING OF WEAPONS WITHOUT PERMIT; PENALTIES.
