It’s not just wild-eyed activists pleading for expanded background checks on firearms purchases. This article from the Minneapolis Star Tribune describes law enforcement influence at the Minnesota legislature that shows there are many police and law enforcement leaders who also want to work towards reducing gun violence. Our thanks goes out to Dennis Flaherty, Director of the Minnesota Police and Peace Officers Association (MPPOA) and Andy Skoogman, Executive Director for the Minnesota Chiefs of Police Association, only to name two from the article.
