Racine Wisconsin Senator Van Wanggaard is introducing a bill to repeal the 48 hour waiting period for people buying a handgun. His reason is that background checks are instant now, and don't require extra time to see if a person can legally purchase a handgun. People in favor of the waiting period say it's a good cooling down period. But, does that make sense?
Monday the House passed a stadium plan with some modifications. Tuesday it was the Senates turn and after 11 hours of debate, they also have passed a Vikings stadium bill by a vote of 38-28. Like the House, the Minnesota Senate made changes and now the two sides must compromise before sending the bill to its final destination to be signed by Governor Mark Dayton.
