New law lets prosecutors carry guns

From MPR

Minnesota prosecutors have new authority to arm themselves on duty. Gov. Mark Dayton on Monday signed a bill allowing county attorneys and assistant county attorneys to carry firearms on duty as long as they have a valid permit. County attorneys can impose restrictions in their respective offices.

The new law takes effect Tuesday.
