(KNSI) – A central Minnesota lawmaker says he won’t support a gun control bill introduced by Democrats this week.

From Paul Novotny’s Office

State Representative Paul Novotny, R-Elk River, says House File 2705 ‘Firearn Safety Act’ would ban all magazines over ten rounds in Minnesota. The former Sherburne County Sheriff’s Deputy says the law would require gun owners to register almost all semiautomatic firearms with their local Chief of Police or Sheriff or be charged with a gross misdemeanor. He says the bill would also require Minnesotans to turn over or destroy magazines with capacities of 10 rounds or face felony charges.

“At a time when violent crime is spiking, the elderly are robbed going to get groceries, and when law abiding members of the public are using legally carried concealed firearms to protect themselves and others from violent assaults, it is no surprise that Democrats will once again look to limit the 2nd Amendment for law-abiding Minnesotans. All while the Ramsey and Hennepin County Attorneys refuse to pursue strong punishment for those that are committing these violent crimes,” said Novotny.

He says the bill is filled with bans on standard handgun and rifle magazines and includes mandatory registration of most semiautomatic firearms, including hunting shotguns and semiautomatic military-style assault weapons.

Novotny says any gun control bill will need to come through the Public Safety Committee in the House, and as a member of that committee, he says he will work to stop an unconstitutional bill.
