Ramsey County District Court judge has ruled that Governor Mark Dayton's line-item veto of funding for the legislature is unconstitutional. Dayton will appeal the ruling to the Minnesota Supreme Court.
Iowans no longer have to retreat in a public place before using deadly force – that’s the result of a new gun law that took effect in the state this month. But it’s creating an abundance of concern and confusion.
Sheriff Dave Drew of Woodbury County says he’ll continue to enforce a no-guns-allowed policy at the county courthouse, even as the county supervisors insist the courthouse ban should no longer apply. Drew says he is complying with a June order from the Iowa Supreme Court, which limits the ability to carry weapons in justice centers.
“I’m an officer of the court, I have been for the 36 years I’ve been doing this job, and I don’t have that luxury to tell the judge, ‘You know, I don’t agree with that,’” he says.
Opponents of the law are worried that it may actually increase violence in the state.
