New Graded Legislation: Minnesota HF 4360


Reps. Erin Murphy and JoAnn Ward have introduced legislation in the Minnesota House of Representatives that would enact a number of restrictions on firearms. The bill, House File 4360, has been referred to the House Public Safety and Security Policy and Finance Committee and would, in part:

  1. Require criminal background checks for pistol transfers
  2. Prohibit transfer of semiautomatic military-style assault weapons and large capacity magazines
  3. Establish a firearm buyback program

All of these provisions have broad, bipartisan support among the American public, and LEAP Foward will be grading support for this legislation.
