Gun violence prevention
Following the massacres at the Accent Signage Company in Minneapolis, the Aurora, Colorado movie theater, and Sandy Hook Elementary School, County Attorney Mike Freeman developed a package of gun violence prevention bills for the Minnesota legislature. The common sense changes proposed in the Practical Prosecutors' Package would provide county attorneys with more tools to address gun violence and keep our children and communities safe without affecting responsible gun owners.
The first year it was introduced, the package passed every legislative committee in the Minnesota House and Senate, but was never brought to a floor vote. In 2014, the legislature passed the domestic violence piece of the package.
