“Republican legislators have proposed a constitutional amendment for Minnesota that upholds the federal constitution’s 2nd amendment right of the people to keep and bear arms.”
On Feb. 18 Representative Cal Bahr (R- East Bethel) Representative Jeremy Munson (R- Lake Crystal), Representative Steve Drazkowski (R- Mazeppa), Tim Miller (R-Prinsburg), Representative Eric Lucero (R-Dayton), Representative John Poston (R- Lake Shore) Representative Steve Green (R- Fosston), and Senator Paul Utke (R- Park Rapids) proposed a constitutional amendment that would state that the right to bear and keep arms shall not be infringed.
Right now, Minnesota is one of 6 states to not include 2nd amendment protections within our constitution. House File 1334 and Senate File 1115 aim to change that. “This is something we can do proactively moving forward to protect” the rights of citizens to keep and bear arms, Rep. Miller states.
