MN: Second Amendment Supporter Sues for Rights Violation
A growing number of Minnesotans have permits to carry firearms, according to numbers from the state. But one Minnesotan with a permit claims the City St. Cloud denied him his right.
Tyler Gottwalt is suing the city of St. Cloud. According to the lawsuit, Gottwalt was walking in the city on November 17, 2014, with a rifle on his back. Police confronted him and ultimately he was cited for carrying his weapon in public, but Gottwalt's lawyer says the St. Cloud ordinance is in conflict with both state statute and the Second Amendment.
