Minnesota Legislation Debates Looser Gun Laws
Minnesota Legislators debated to two different bills, one that will remove the the permit-to-carry requirement, while the other would expand the role of the use of deadly force in self defense, according to THIS post from mprnews.org.
People who favor the first bill believe the requirements of going over to get a permit to carry can prevent people from their second-amendment right. To get a permit to carry in Minnesota, Minnesotans have to go to a class taught by a certified instructor. This takes time and cost money, which is the main reason the people who favor the bill believe it to prevent people from their second-amendment right.
The other bill being debated states that a person could use deadly force to "resist or prevent" a felony occurring in somebody's home. At the end of the day, the committee decided to postponed the vote on the two bills, but the two bills would make some major changes to Minnesota law.
How do you feel about this? I can see both sides of the aisle on this particular issue, especially with gun control. What I find most interesting about it is that we have seen many people advocate for more gun control, while our state looks to loosen gun control.
