At the beginning of 2018, there were five chapters of Moms Demand Action in Minnesota.

Right now there are twenty.

Sarah Mikesell leads the local chapter of the group, and they're meeting today with St. Louis County Sheriff Ross Litman.

The idea is to meet with the sheriff and introduce themselves, and also to seek support for a couple of bills pending with the Minnesota legislature: one to close the background check loophole and one to temporarily prohibit people from possessing firearms if they pose a threat to themselves or others.
