Minnesota gun control proposals hit obstacle in conference committee
Proposals fail to advance in surprise conference vote on public safety spending.
Two gun-control measures deemed a top priority by Minnesota DFL lawmakers this session were dealt an all-but-fatal blow Tuesday after they failed to advance on a party-line vote.

Coming after three hours of debate, the result appeared to stymie efforts by gun-control advocates to expand criminal-background checks to private gun sales and create a “red flag” law that would allow authorities to temporarily confiscate firearms from people considered a threat to themselves or others.

The gun proposals, similar to federal proposals that have divided Congress, came to a head when Sen. Warren Limmer, R-Maple Grove, called for a vote on whether to add them to a broader spending bill being assembled by members from both the House and Senate.

The gambit paid off for Limmer, who earlier expressed deep reservations about both policy proposals: Members of the joint conference committee on the public safety budget split 5-5 along party lines and failed to add either measure to the spending bill.

Although good news, I'll celebrate when the documents are signed and they have adjourned for the year.

Not really ever "over." Support Minnesota Gun Owners Caucus (NOT Minnesota Gun Rights) for the "long game."

Not much excess money? Volunteer for a phone bank next election and other things. Watch for MNGOC Actions. Call, email , tweet your elected officials.

You realize I'm the Chairman of the Minnesota Gun Owners Caucus, right? :D

But you're right, it's never really ever over.

Thanks for your support & advocacy!

The online site says "hit obstacle" but I thought the actual printed newspapers said "stymied", which struck me as a little pro-control.

Mpr reported that 2 bills that would have reduced gun violence where blocked by republicans.

Guess when you get public funding you can report lies and be political.
