Dayton vetoes Hoffman's gun bill
Gov. Mark Dayton vetoed a bill sponsored by Sen. Gretchen Hoffman, R-Vergas, that sought to expand the use of weapons in self-defense.
In a letter to Kurt Zellers, Speaker of the House, Dayton cited law enforcement and public organi-zations' opposition to the bill as main motives behind his veto.
"When they strongly oppose a measure, because they believe it will increase the dangers to them in the performance of their duties, I cannot support it," he wrote.
