Rybak wants to find out more about makers of Minneapolis guns


Minneapolis Mayor R.T. Rybak said he and 60 other U.S. mayors are about to start digging into the companies that sell guns and ammunition to police departments in their cities.

Rybak said he wants to find out if those manufacturers are standing in the way of “common sense” gun control.

“If we find out they’re not partners, and if we find out they’re working against us, then we ought to all have a conversation as taxpayers whether our dollar should be used for people who are not helping to reduce gun violence,” Rybak said.
