MN Lawmakers Ready to Push for Gun Rights

State Rep­re­sen­ta­tive Jim Nash isn’t shy about his feel­ings on the Sec­ond Amend­ment.  Alpha News caught up with the fresh­man leg­is­la­tor dur­ing a per­mit to car­ry class in Chan­has­sen.  He’s not re-elect­ed yet, but that isn’t stop­ping him from look­ing ahead to the 2017 leg­isla­tive ses­sion.  Nash says he will be “intro­duc­ing sev­er­al dif­fer­ent gun bills” in 2017.

Nash says if he returns for the next ses­sion he will be intro­duc­ing gun leg­is­la­tion cov­er­ing “Stand Your Ground” and “Con­sti­tu­tion­al Car­ry” issues.  Nash says, “You should be able to defend your­self with­out hav­ing, by what says Min­neso­ta law, hav­ing to retreat, in all prac­ti­cal sit­u­a­tions.”

Rep­re­sen­ta­tive Nash says that cur­rent law can be sum­ma­rized down to “if you’re able to retreat, you should.”  In 2012  Gov­er­nor Day­ton vetoed a stand your ground bill the leg­is­la­ture passed.

State Rep­re­sen­ta­tive Tony Albright of Pri­or Lake agrees with Nash. Albright says there is too much gray area sur­round­ing Minnesota’s per­son­al pro­tec­tion laws. Albright says Nash’s leg­is­la­tion is need­ed to pro­tect cit­i­zens who right­ful­ly defend them­selves, explain­ing, “Hav­ing that prece­dent and hav­ing that back­ground I think just gives every­one a lit­tle more assur­ance that they’re on firm foun­da­tion.”

Albright says Nash has the sup­port of the Repub­li­can Cau­cus behind him, say­ing this will be a top pri­or­i­ty in 2017, stat­ing, “I think it’s going to be top of the mind for us as we go in to the next bien­ni­um.”

Nash says next ses­sion he would also like to dis­cuss a “con­sti­tu­tion­al car­ry” law, which would give Min­nesotans the abil­i­ty to  car­ry a weapon with­out hav­ing to first attend a per­mit to car­ry class.

Alpha News will have a fol­low up sto­ry about how you can get your per­mit to car­ry next week.  Sub­scribe on our home page to make sure you don’t miss out.
