Gun Control Supporters Rally at MN Capitol

Posted: Updated:

Gun control supporters will meet outside Minnesota's House chamber today to show their disappointment that bills to expand background checks for gun purchases have been shelved for the year.

The Minnesota Gun Violence Prevention Coalition plans a Friday demonstration two days after House Speaker Paul Thissen decided no gun bills will get votes in the 2013 session.

The Minnesota gun violence prevention coalition is planning the demonstration.

Earlier this week House Speaker Paul Thissen said none of the gun control measures would get a vote because there's not enough votes to get them passed.

Gun control activist's say expanded background checks are widely supported.
