After years of stalemate, Democrats see opportunity for gun control in Minnesota
Rob Doar, vice president of the Minnesota Gun Owners Caucus, voiced opposition to both proposals Democrats are discussing for next year. He raised concerns about the red flag law proposal, arguing that it deprives an individual of due process in court. He also believes expanded background checks to cover all gun transfers — including those among friends and family — would create bureaucratic hurdles.
“It adds a lot of unnecessary burdens to law-abiding gun owners, while not addressing any of the actual people who we’re worried about getting guns,” Doar said.
