Gov. Walz vows action on gun control during State of the State
- In his State of the State last night, Walz spoke for just over 30 minutes.
- He made a vow that Minnesota will act on gun control as he acknowledged progressive legislation that had passed this session under a DFL-led legislature.
- In their response, GOP leaders blasted Walz for no mention of the death of Pope County Sheriff’s Deputy Joshua Owen last weekend and failures from the DFL to address tax relief.
“We’ve got a gun safety bill on the table – and we’re going to get it passed,” said Walz. “And if anyone in America doubts that we can take meaningful action to protect our kids, I’ve got two words for you: Watch us.”
On gun control, Minority House Leader Rep. Lisa Demuth added: “I can tell you what Republicans and most Minnesotans are looking for is they are looking for criminals to be held accountable and keeping guns out of criminals hands to start. We got to start there, enforcing what is already on the books.”
