In response to the COVID-19 pandemic, Governor Tim Walz has issued Executive Order 20-20, the “Stay at Home” order which takes effect tomorrow. This order includes a requirement for all individuals to suspend activities unless they are obtaining “products needed to maintain the safety, sanitation, and essential operation of homes and residences, businesses and personally-owned vehicles.” His order failed to mention anything specific regarding firearm manufacturers or retailers. For now, gun stores in Minnesota are open and operational. During this time of uncertainty, it is critical that law-abiding citizens remain able to access their Second Amendment right to self-defense.
