Gun arrest in Minneapolis City Hall

Associated Press
MINNEAPOLIS - There's been another gun arrest at Minneapolis City Hall, according to a report by KSTP-TV.

Police say they arrested a man who walked into City Hall Tuesday with a gun. The 60-year-old Big Lake man tried to persuade officers that he was part of an undercover government operation. He was arrested at gunpoint.

Just last April, police locked down City Hall as they searched for man who reportedly picked up a gun stashed in some planters. Those planters have now been removed and signs banning guns have been put up.

They are telling me I can not enter City Hall with my gun and they have no legal right to do so.

They don't have the right to say that, or they don't have the right to prevent you from doing it?

624.714, Minnesota Statutes wrote:
Subd. 17. Posting; trespass. (a) A person carrying a firearm on or about his or her person or clothes under a permit or otherwise who remains at a private establishment knowing that the operator of the establishment or its agent has made a reasonable request that firearms not be brought into the establishment may be ordered to leave the premises.
...
(4) "Private establishment" means a building, structure, or portion thereof that is owned,
leased, controlled, or operated by a nongovernmental entity for a nongovernmental purpose.

In their role as a government entity I think the correct answer is: both.

I don't see anything there saying they can't post a (meaningless) sign.

Enforcing what the sign says is a violation of state law. Now, how much justice can you afford?

I agree that the carry law or maybe even any other Minnesota statutes or maybe even Federal code doesn't prevent the posting of the sign, but, to me, the sign is a threat under color of law or office.

I don't believe the state is guaranteed freedom of speech under the 1st amendment, the people are.

I can't afford to become a test case on this point, but I can sure exercise my right to bitch about it.

Whoever directed that those signs be posted should be fired, for putting the city in a liability situation. They are making the City of Minneapolis the (possible) target of a lawsuit, due to their willful violation of Minnesota State Law, and putting the city at (probable) financial liability for both side's (probably not cheap) court costs.

Been carrying this picture around for along time. Sorry for the delay. It's wrong in so many ways.
