Paymar stated in an interview today that he intends to bring gun registration (aka Universal Background Checks) directly to the House floor for a vote.
Here’s the quote in the Star Tribune today:
“On Wednesday he said, ‘The agreement we had with the Speaker is that Rep. Hilstrom would agree to the gun show loophole language, and that the Speaker would allow a vote on the House floor.’ But once that more limited bill reaches the floor, Paymar said, an amendment will likely be offered to re-insert universal background checks.”
