Two gun bills will not be a part of a broad public safety bill after they failed to pass in a party-line vote conference committee vote Tuesday. The measures called for background checks on all gun sales and put in place a “red flag” law that is meant to keep guns out of the hands of those who may be a threat to themselves or others.
“Background checks on all sales is a proven policy. it’s in use in more than 20 states with lower rates of gun death and other statistical benefits as well.”
Democratic Representative Dave Pinto. But Rob Doar with Minnesota Guns Rights argues that…
“These laws do nothing to keep guns out of the hands of individuals who we’re actually worried about possessing firearms and the big problem is they’re much more likely to catch a good person in a paperwork mistake.”
Democrats say the bills could still be re-introduced this session, Republicans say the bills are not likely to get anywhere.
