Panel suggests new rules for Minn. Capitol guns

January 9, 2014

ST. PAUL, Minn. (AP) — Gun owners who want to legally carry weapons into the Minnesota Capitol could soon have to provide more precise information to authorities.

An Advisory Committee on Capitol Security voted 3-2 on Thursday to recommend a change to state law. It would require people with handgun permits to alert authorities they may be coming within a weapon at least once every five years. They would also have to supply personal data and permit data.

It would replace a process where notifications are valid indefinitely and little data about the gun owner is documented. It's part of a report headed to the Legislature for consideration in coming months.

The report also seeks to boost the presence of troopers and security guards around the Capitol complex.
