Rochester - My new home town?
It's less than a hundred miles from Minneapolis where I was born and raised. I've only visited a few times though so can't offer the best informed opinion.
It's a big small town. Has the feel of a town with the services of a big city.
Yes, Minnesotan's can carry a hand gun. But you have to pass a background check that happens during a seven day waiting period. It's a recent law allowing concealed carry. There was fear that umpteen thousands would apply. I don't have numbers to quote, but I believe only a couple thousand have applied.
I have yet to see anyone with a holster, and have yet to see/read a news report of someone pulling their concealed gun out.
Welcome to Minnesnowta :-)
