(Saint Paul, MN) – AUGUST 21, 2015: In August 2015, Minnesota reached a landmark achievement with the issuance of the 200,000th Permit to Carry a Pistol.
“I’m excited to see Minnesotans exercising their right to keep and bear arms in record numbers, “said Bryan Strawser, Executive Director, Minnesota Gun Owners Political Action Committee (MNGOPAC). “Permit holders in Minnesota today are more diverse, more female, and younger than ever before, reflecting the growing popularity of the shooting sports and self-defense awareness across our state.”
In 2003, Minnesota passed the Minnesota Citizen’s Personal Protection Act, changing the state to “shall issue”, requiring the county sheriff to issue a permit to any law-abiding citizen who has completed an approved training course and is not a danger to self or others.
