Minnesota House passes gun bills relating to storage of firearms, requiring gun thefts be reported

Under language of the bill, it would be a crime to store, keep, or leave a firearm in any place unless the firearm is unloaded and equipped with a locking device; or loaded or unloaded in a locked firearm storage unit or a locked gun room. (Stock photo)
