Changes may be coming for Minnesota's gun laws

Posted: Updated:

 After three days of emotional hearings on Minnesota's gun laws, Democratic leaders are planning their next steps on possible changes.
 
Hundreds of people packed the Capitol this week for almost 15 hours of hearings on about a dozen different bills. Among the proposals are tighter background checks and banning assault weapons and high-capacity ammunition magazines.
 
A Senate committee is expected to take up some of those bills in the next two weeks.
 
Rep. Michael Paymar, the St. Paul Democrat who chaired the hearings in the House, says he'll pick which bills should go into a gun violence package he plans to introduce in early March.
