Permit To Carry
Police are investigating after two different shootings involving the same people occurred in St. Paul Monday evening. According to St. Paul Police, shortly before 6 p.m. two men with at least one gun tried to rob another man near the intersection of Pennsylvania Avenue and Rice Street. The victim of the attempted robbery was also carrying a gun and had a permit to carry.
A deadly shooting in Minneapolis committed by a 21-year-old man who had a permit to carry could be ruled a justified case of self-defense.
Since the tragedy at Sandy Hook Elementary School, gun control has been a big part of the political conversation in the country.
Minnesota lawmakers say they are trying to make the Capitol safer after the shooting of an Arizona Congresswoman. But hundreds of people are allowed to walk freely into state buildings — even the legislature and the governor’s office — carrying weapons.
