MN Passes New CCW Law
Minn-eeee-sota (Ya, sure, you bet) has just a new "Shall Issue" CCW law.
Yesterday the State Senate passed it (it had previously passed in the House) 37-30, and the Governor signed it into law an hour later.
The Bill passed easier than expected with most of the Republicans and many rural Democrats voting for it....and urban Democrats voting against.
Previously, anybody wanting a CCW Permit was subject to the whims of the local Chief of Police, or Sheriff.
Now the law is uniform across the state and an applicant "shall be issued" unless disqualified by previous conviction of a felony or mental instability, etc.
