HOLLAND — Hennepin County Sheriff Rich Stanek spoke this week to the 2nd Precinct Advisory Council, or 2PAC, about major holes he sees in the background check system for gun carriers.
The citizens group invited Stanek as a guest at their Monday meeting to hear his ideas on improving the safety of Minneapolis. Stanek said gun access is a major safety issue for citizens both in Minnesota and across the nation.
“We have an access problem in this country,” Stanek said. “Primarily those with mental illnesses should never have access to a gun.”
