Gun Legislation

Rob Doar, with the Gun Owners Civil Rights Alliance, holds up a rifle as a visual aid at a hearing on proposed new gun laws with the House public safety committee in the State Office Building in St. Paul, Minn. on Wednesday, Feb. 6, 2013. Hundreds of people from both sides of the debate swarmed the Capitol office building for the hearing, jamming the committee room and several overflow areas a day after President Barack Obama visited Minneapolis to tout his federal gun-control proposals. With Democrats controlling the Legislature, new limits on gun access have their best shot at the Capitol in a number of years. But the debate could expose divides between urban Democrats, who represent areas where new gun limits are popular, and rural Democrats from areas with high gun ownership and less support for serious curtailments on the ability to own weapons.
