MINNESOTA – Minnesota received a "C+" grade for its gun safety laws in the latest edition of the annual Giffords Law Center Gun Law Scorecard. The report said Minnesota "has enacted modest gun safety measures in recent years."

The Land of 10,000 Lakes has the eighth-lowest gun death rate in the United States and exports "crime guns" at less than half the national rate, according to the study.

Minnesota gun death rate (8.2 per 100,000 residents) is also lower than the national average (11.9 per 100,000 residents).

"Examples of policies lawmakers in Minnesota could implement to save lives include requiring a permit to purchase a firearm, instituting point-of-sale background checks, and enacting an extreme risk protection order law," the report states.

The Giffords Law Center scorecard is based on gun death rates tabulated by the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention and analysis of gun legislation in all 50 states. Each law and policy is assigned a point value, with more stringent gun laws gaining points for a state.

"For decades, state lawmakers have an established track record of following the NRA's orders. But this era is over as state leaders are now charting a different course, passing hundreds of laws that have brought countless communities increased peace and safety," said Robyn Thomas, executive director of Giffords Law Center to Prevent Gun Violence.

"The rise of gun safety laws, which accelerated after Parkland captured the nation's attention and crystalized demands for action, shows leaders on both sides of the aisle are taking action."

The Giffords Law Center Gun Safety Scorecard can be found online.

Anything spewed out by the Giffords Law Center Gun Safety, or any other gun grabber organization, is nothing but lies couched in pretty language.
