Minnesota gun control bill aims to close sales loophole

By BOB VON STERNBERG, Star Tribune

Featured comment

Gun control advocates are taking another stab at changing a state law that allows people to buy handguns and assault rifles without a background check from unlicensed dealers.

A similar bill got nowhere in the legislature last year, but chief sponsor Rep. Michael Paymar,St. Paul, said he hopes tweaks in the bill's language will satisfy the measure's opponents.

"It's a good bill, a simple one designed to keep dangerous guns out of the hands of dangerous people," Paymar said.

The bill would close the so-called "gun show/Internet loophole." It would prohibit private sales of pistols or assault weapons unless the buyer or seller was a federally licensed dealer, or used a licensed dealer to transfer the weapon. That includes sales at garage and estate sales and over the Internet, which are currently exempt from background checks.

The bill is designed to block gun sales to convicted felons, people with a record of domestic abuse and those suffering from mental illness by requiring a background check that would reveal such people may not legally buy a gun, Paymar said.

Language in the bill that would have included private gun transactions between family members has been dropped from the legislation, he said.

The bill, which is to be introduced today, will be discussed at a news conference this afternoon held by Paymar, Citizens for a Safer Minnesota and the Peace Foundation of North Minneapolis.

I went back.

I joined the NRA today after about a ten year hiatus.

Glad you can make light of it. I wish I was that way. I take my 2nd amendment rights VERY, VERY seriously.

Agreed, you can mock it all you want. But with all the new propsals I've seen in the last couple of months (no smoking in your car, Fairness doc just to name two) I wouldn't put it past then.

I may be playing the devils advocate here, but if it keeps the guns out of the hands of criminals/felons, then I'm all for it.

It won't lep. The law will keep them out of the hands of those that abide by the laws. Last I checked the ones we have to worry about don't abide by the law.

I agree to a point Shane. This drag net will catch those who used to go to the gun shows.

Then there are those who acquire their guns by theft. No law will change that.

I have an idea to help eliminate the issue, but the bleeding hearts who want to hug and rehabilitate criminals will cry foul.

I agree and I'm not against fixing the gun show loop hole. I just don't want to see regulations and bans put on guns.

That was exactly what I was getting at.

Im not mocking anything. I can honostly say that most people who are commiting the crimes are not the ones applying for a handgun permit and going to a store to buy them. Too many people legally own guns for this to happen. Besides the fact that going on with the whole bill would cost a fortune that we dont have right now. I really think we got bigger fish to fry at this time. Im pretty sure our budget is going to limit this even when some people got big ideas.

In all reality I have to say if you want something done, then call/write your elected official and tell them what you think. While getting awarness for the problem is extremely important, actually doing something about it is what counts in the end.

I myself do not own a gun nor have I ever fired one. I do fish but don't hunt, but I fully support people's right to bear arms and I am against the slow erosion of our civil liberties, slippery slope my friends!

Lets make buying and selling crack, cocaine and other drugs illegal then no one can use them and we will all be safe. Oh wait they already did that and there are drugs everywhere!

The truth is no amount of regulation is going to keep guns out of the hands of criminals, all you are doing is creating a stronger environment for guns on the black market. All these laws and regulations only punish the law abiding citizens while any criminal can go out and buy a gun on the street just about any time they want.

<shaking head hard enough to make my teeth rattle>

Why would anyone oppose this bill?

Background checks for gun shows & Internet sales? Seriously? People see that as an assault on their 2nd Amendment rights?

So...let me get this straight...because people can steal guns y'all oppose doing a background check on the guy who's been convincted of assaulting his wife three times...and issuing terroristic threats...I don't see the connection.

Can someone name me a perfect law?

A gun does not a criminal make.

It does when laws are passed that make gun owners criminals, though.

Kind of like another thread discussing coded ammo. If a law like that was to pass in MN, I'd be a criminal for sure.

Guess your right on both counts.

I, and along with most other firearm owners would be in the same boat. laugh

I was under the impression that you still had to have a purchase permit to buy a handgun at a show. Is that not the case? You have to pass a backround to get a purchase permit.

I think what you are seeing here is a hole bunch of legislators thowwing "stuff" at the wall to see if it sticks.

Gun laws only hurt law abiding folks. The criminal element will still get theirs.

Do you really think that someone who is a wife beater or a terrorist and wants a gun is going to abide by ANY gun law??? Come on.... The only people that are going to be affected by more gun laws are LAW ABIDING people. what happens when one of these guys brakes into your home and steels your gun and you get put in jail over it????? Because some crook broke the LAW????

<shaking my head back and forth tell my teeth rattle>Might of even had a few fall out over that one confused

    • Correct.  Stinkhorns.
    • Sorry, HW signed the agreement then handed it over to Billy C.  So, you're right, clearly the democrats fault.
    • Who signed the NAFTA treaty? The House of Representatives approved NAFTA, by a vote of 234 to 200 on November 17, 1993, and the Senate voted 60 to 38 for approval on November 20. It was signed into law by President Clinton on December 8, 1993, and took effect on January 1, 1994.   Derp.....
    • I say we go to Mars and make the Martians pay for it.
    • No idea what you're talking about, but I'll assume it's complimentary.
    • Probably a good call since Trump's assertion that Billy C. signed NAFTA into law is false.
    • Any one have one of the newer automatic King Quest Satellites? I just bought a new Ice Castle, and my old own had the Winegard crank up style dish which I had no problem with. They are trying to tell me to buy a new  king portable one, but I am not sure it is worth the extra money. I only know of one person with the newer one, and he said he liked the older crank up one better. He said he was always losing signal with automatic one. Any feed back would be great.. Thanks
    • Hey all, I recently upgraded from my homemade wheelhouse to a new hydraulic ice castle and had a few questions I forgot to ask at the dealer. 1. For the hydraulic frame, does anyone bring extra hydraulic fluid with? Wouldn't imagine to need it unless you had a leak but I don't know much about hydraulics. Ever need to change out the fluids? 2. Ladders. After buying and trying to get on the top bunk I noticed it is extremely hard to climb up there (especially after a few beers) are they suppose to come with a ladder? was going to call the dealer and try and make them throw one in. I made a temporary ladder which works fine but wondering what other people have done. 3. DNR Registration numbers. My previous house I had some decals made up and looked real nice. However that had smooth siding. Anyone have any advice on where to put numbers that look good? Suppose I could just be extra careful in applying to the ribbed siding so they get applied smooth with the grooves but wondering where everyone else puts theirs. Don't really want to do the old white square boat numbers on there. 4. Microwaves. Anyone have any recommendations on a good microwave to install? I have a lot of empty space above the hydraulics near the kitchen I think a microwave would be perfect, and there is already an outlet there for charging the hydraulic system battery - just wondering if anyone had a good one for travel/low power draw. 5. Any recommendations on generators? Was going to go buy a new Honda 2000 have heard good things about them and always been a Honda fan. that should run a small microwave I'm thinking? My Honda 1000 bit the dust last year - mainly because of my own mistake haha 6. Sound system. Sounds okay in there but it isn't the upgraded premium speakers. Wondering if anyone had some new speakers they liked and possibly a new deck. 7. Rod holders. Wanted to throw some fishing pole holders on the wall in the bathroom. Was having a hard time finding any I liked at the stores or online. Anyone have something that worked well for them, and didn't fall out during transit? I had one last year I had mounted under a cabinet and of course the first weekend with my new crappie pole fell off and broke!   Figured I'd see if anyone had any advice on what worked well for them. Thanks in advance!!
