Gun reform remains a key issue on a national and local level. Here in Minnesota, in the last legislative session, House Democratic lawmakers pushed for universal background checks and red flag laws and Senate Republicans pushed back saying the laws would do little to prevent mass shootings. Governor Walz–who says he supports 2nd amendment rights argues…

“In a modern world, with modern technology we need to modernize our laws to make sure our citizens are protected, so I think the thing that can be done and the only thing that will do this is, legislators are going to have to know that there’s going to be a political price to pay if you don’t deal with this issue and deal with it now.”

Walz says states–including Florida and Arizona–have passed gun reforms with bipartisan support and Minnesota should do the same in the next legislative session.
