I did some minor editing of at least one capital notification form letter before I sent it in on Monday. I got a call back today in regards to:

"Please consider this letter as the statutorily required notification securing for me the exemption specified in Minnesota Statutes section 609.66, subdivision 1g (b)(2) from the prohibition on possession of a pistol and ammunition in "any state building within the capitol area" and in "any courthouse complex" in the counties indicated above. "

Perhaps in my editing I changed/omitted something important. The head of capital security(that lady who keeps getting mentioned as professional around here and who's name escapes me) said that they had gotten a couple recently and were concerned that the senders thought that they could carry in county courthouses using that same notification. In closing she also stated that if they chose to put magnetometers in place that permit holders could not carry past those.

Excuse me? where in state law does it say that?

It's my understanding that if I want to carry in a Dakota County Courthouse I need to notify the Dakota County Sheriff, and Anoka County Sheriff to carry in Anoka County Courthouses. A single letter to the Capitol isn't going to cover the entire state.

Correct. But you can write one letter with multiple addressees and send a copy to the sheriff in every county that you care about. That is what my standard form does for the 7-county Metro area.

Has anyone gotten a nasty-gram back from the Dakota or other county sheriff about carrying in a courthouse?

Just curious.

Keep in mind that there are court orders in place that will keep you from carrying in many county's court houses. Is it legal? Probably not. Others can speak to that better than I can, but the fact of the matter is that if you were arrested for contempt of court, you're going to be pleading your case in front of a judge.

Once again, one of those fun test cases...

I wouldn't say that they were nasty, but the Metro area sheriffs I've sent notice to have sent back letters explaining their own theories about the law, and the judges' orders.

Does anyone know which counties currently have such court orders?

I received notification of a court order back from Olmsted county (Rochester), delivered via cert mail so they had a record/signature.

I got nothing and I live/work/carry in Dakota County. I've sent in my letter informing them of intent to carry and such. And I am routinely at the Apple Valley Dakota County courthouse complex for meetings at the library, where I carry.

So...I'm curious what this letter said??
