Gun control debate heats up in St. Paul Thursday

Posted: Updated:
ST. PAUL, Minn. (FOX 47) -

After several days of major protests at the Minnesota capital, advocates from both sides of the gun debate return to St.Paul Thursday. 

This comes as the House Public Safety and Security Committee meets to votes on two gun-related bills.

One would require background checks on all gun transfers. The other would allow for gun violence protective orders. 

Gun control support group "Protect Minnesota" is organizing another rally and news conference around the meeting. 

While gun rights groups are also expected to make themselves heard at the capitol.

The meeting begins around 10:15 a.m.
