Smoking Gun? That's Two Bills to Sen. Barb Goodwin

All in day's work for MN senator representing Fridley: She introduced legislation Thursday to put a stop to on-stage smoking and felon gun-rights.

Felons wouldn't be able to get their gun rights back and actors wouldn't be able to smoke on stage if two bills state Sen. Barb Goodwin introduced Thursday become law.

The bill prohibiting felons from petitioning for restored firearms rights is the first legislation regarding guns in the new session of the Minnesota Legislature that started Jan. 8, 2013.

Both the smoking and gun bills are issues Goodwin has pushed in previously at the Minnesota Senate:

Have you ever wondered how many felons who want a gun apply for a gun permit, I have and would guess the answer is zero. Easier, quicker to buy one off the street. The only good thing about this bill is the more time they spend on it the less time they have to figure out what else to dream up to spend money on.
