(St. Paul, MN) -- A bill that started out as part of the sweeping gun legislation that was abandoned amid a firestorm of controversy had a hearing today in a state Senate committee. At issue were two major gaps sponsor D-F-L Senator Ron Latz says exist in the database officials rely on when determining whether to issue a gun permit. He was also asked whether a drunk driving conviction that resulted in court ordered substance abuse treatment would be treated the same as court ordered civil commitment for mental illness. He said it would not because court ordered treatment as a part of a criminal sentence is a separate matter completely from the civil commitment process. The bill was heard in the Finance Committee.
