    Recognition, not reciprocity. Reciprocity with all states means that a MN permit would be valid in all 50 states. Recognition of all states means that anyone with any permit may carry in MN.

    This will pass the senate, the question is can we shame the plutocrat Governor into signing it?

    I do believe they tried to pass this last legislative session but it failed??? I worked in MN over the summer and couldn't carry at all I really hated it too bad the law didn't pass so I could have carried.

    good! i hope it passes .. i have family in minnesota and i live in North Dakota.. would be nice if my permit was valid there. right now its not.

    when it does become valid there it will be nice to carry there as i dont like going far into another state where i dont know how to get anywhere and i dont know the layout of the place i go to, so needless to say im lost when i cross state lines. and it suks to be unarmed when lost:wow:

    will be nice to have my g19 with me when it passes :wavey::cool::supergrin::supergrin::supergrin:

    xman, it is still the same session, they adjourned for the season last year but that only freezes everything in odd number years. Each session is two years long, so when the Legislature started up again they picked everything up right where they left off. The senate has to pass it but the house does not have to re-pass it.

    The Gov is an odd duck (and extremely liberal in his ways), hard to tell what he will/don't do.

    I call him Governor Goofy.

    I'd put money on a veto.

    I would bring up the gang member analogy that she so quickly used! For one how many gang members are running around with legally acquired firearms? And why not let the trash take out the trash?!! I would also find someway to respectfully argue her belief that the local PD chiefs are in anyway experts at law making, not being anti leo here, but their job is to enforce the law, not come up with laws and interpret new laws. IMHO

    Also most chiefs especially in that part of the metro are not too keen on anyone having guns that doesn't have a badge. Not the individual officers but the brass seem to be very out of touch with what actually goes on in their cities.

    I might point out that there is still the reluctant participant requirement, also why should a law abiding citizen have to attempt to leave someplace they have every right to be and possibly put themselves in a much worse tactical position.

    Passed the Senate 40-23 Thursday. My understanding and from what is posted on the Legislature website is that this is now on to the Governor for either a signature or a veto. At least one news station this morning is reporting it has to go back to the House first. As of right now this does not have a veto proof majority, it would take three more senate votes for that.

    I was incorrect, it did have to go back to the house for a procedural vote. It went through and is now on the Governor's desk. There is a slight possibility that a veto could be overridden. There is a much greater possibility that the legislative leadership works out a deal with the Gov for something he wants later in the session.
