Gun Bills

Two major gun bills passed in the Democrat-controlled Minnesota House Thursday evening. Lawmakers voted 69 to 62 in favor of a background check law, and a “red flag” bill passed by 68-62 votes. Both of the bills were passed by the Minnesota House last year, but both went nowhere in the Republican-controlled Senate. A large group of gun control supporters were outside the chamber Thursday, demanding the House pass the measures again. One of these measures would expand background checks to online sales and gun shows. The other would allow police to seize a person’s weapon if a judge ruled they were a threat to themselves or others. Both gun control advocates and gun control opponents are convinced they have voters on their side. Since this is an election year, we will see if the voters really do or do not want gun control. Both measures are now headed to the Republican-controlled Senate. All 201 member of the Minnesota legislature are up for election in November.


School Threats

The reason for the mysterious shutdown at La qui Parle Valley Schools has been revealed. The school district posted an update Thursday afternoon, revealing that the decision to cancel classes on Thursday and Friday was taken due to "a threatening message" being found on Wednesday. The message was found after school hours at Lac qui Parle Valley High School, prompting an investigation by the local sheriff's office. School was canceled on Thursday as a result, while Friday will be an e-learning day, with school buildings re-opening on Monday. The nature of the threat was not made clear in the district's update. "Due to the timing of the discovery of the threat, the school elected to close as a precautionary measure to allow the initial investigation into the matter," the district posted. "The school district is enhancing their security to ensure the safety of students and staff. Those changes will take place immediately." The Lac qui Parle Valley School District comprises four schools: Appleton-Milan Elementary, MMN Elementary, Lac qui Parle Middle School, and Lac qui Parle High School.
