LeMier Hails Gun Bill

Representative Mike LeMieur of Little Falls is excited about the potential benefits of a new law which allows the resale of confiscated firearms.

Governor Mark Dayton signed a bill authorizing law enforcement agencies to sell forfeited firearms to federally licensed firearms dealers.

LeMieur, chief author of the bill, said with this change, proceeds from the sale of contraband property will go towards the law enforcement agency’s operating fund, county attorney or other prosecuting agency’s operating fund or crime victims’ services organizations depending on the violation.

The Republican lawmaker called it a common sense solution for increasing revenue and a simple and very practical way to help out our law enforcement agencies
