Minn. Capitol gun carrying policy to get review

ST. PAUL, Minn. (AP) -- A task force studying security at Minnesota's Capitol is starting a review of regulations for having firearms in the building.

The Advisory Committee on Capitol Security has two hearings planned on the topic, the first coming Wednesday. Next week, the panel expects to take public testimony.

People with proper permits and notice can have a gun with them in the Capitol and nearby buildings.

Hundreds of people have declared their intention to do so since Minnesota last updated its handgun permit law.

During last session's hearings on eventually unsuccessful gun legislation, some people showed up with their firearms holstered to their hips.

The panel undertaking the review is led by Lt. Gov. Yvonne Prettner Solon and has law enforcement representatives on it.
