Minnesota Mulls Military Carry Reform

posted on July 31, 2015

In the wake of the terrorist attack on a Chattanooga recruiting office, State Sen. Paul Gazelka has proposed that Minnesota National Guard and other active-duty military should be able to carry concealed without a permit. Gazelka’s district includes the Guard’s Camp Ripley. 

“Men and women in uniform simply being attacked because they represent America and stand for America should have the right and the ability to defend themselves,” Gazelka said. 

Any actual change to Minnesota law could face an uphill battle. Current Gov. Mark Dayton (rated an “F” by NRA-ILA) is certainly no friend to expanding ownership or carry rights, although he has said he’ll defer to National Guard leadership on the issue.

Like most men and women in uniform, Minnesota’s bravest must wait and see who’ll stick up for their self-defense rights.
