Safe Storage Law 2024

Lumpy wrote:Are they trying to squeeze in an inspection clause, either explicitly or by interpretation?


I would think that would be hard to do, since they don’t “know” who has what guns. Thankfully we’re not Illinois (yet) and have a FOID type card requirement.

Lewiston Maine mass shooting

gun_fan111v2 wrote:I was wondering if places with bars are gun free over there


Looks like it’s allowed, unless the bar prohibits. Illegal to be intoxicated and carrying of course.

Lewiston Maine mass shooting

The bowling alley was a gun free zone: https://www.reddit.com/r/Firearms/comme ... is_is_the/

Not sure about the other location.

Lewiston Maine mass shooting

Nobody wants a homicidal maniac with guns roaming the streets. Just like we shouldn’t want a homicidal manic without guns roaming the streets.

Liberty safe

To me the big concern is not that they can access it (anyone with an angle grinder can) but that they can potentially access it without the owner knowing.

This security expert has a pretty good take on the issue:

Insecure login?

This site is insecure in that it doesn’t use HTTPS (encryption), all traffic including your login credentials is in clear text. Most browsers are trying to force HTTPS, but can’t if a website doesn’t support it.

Protect Minnesota is Hiring!!!!

One of us who isn’t known in the gun community should pull a Mary McFate and apply. :)

65k for a salaried job with lots of travel doesn’t sound that great though…

Gun ownership underreported

Illinois might be a good state to compare, since legal gun owners there need a FOID. Supposedly there are 2.1 million FOIDs, in a state with and adult population of 9.1 million, so a little over 24% of adults are legal gun owners. Seems likely to me that we at least double that.

Loose imagination and nothing else: what would be the effect if police chiefs would suddenly receive unfathomable amount of Report of Transfer paperwork?


I suspect that they’d just sit on the paperwork until they got a round tuit.

I don’t have the greatest measuring tools, but here’s what I found:

10.3 grams (159 grain)
18mm long (0.7 in)
8.5mm wide (0.34 in)

So, a 9mm?

Ignorant question

Thanks everyone for the insight. I’ve never seen a non-deformed fired bullet before, wasn’t sure what to expect. This was found in a self-storage facility in Rochester just off of Hwy. 14. Guessing that it was maybe shot from the highway into a snow bank, they usually pile the snow at the end near t...

So I found this on the ground:

Is this a fired bullet? Or just pulled? Not sure what rifling marks would look like.

Minnesota cannabis users not allowed gun ownership federally

So, what is a “user” defined as? Someone who had a toke 20+ years ago? If you stop using, how long until you are no longer a user?
