Tyler Gottwalt strapped on an AK47 and took a walk. He was looking for trouble…
…in pretty much the same way Martin Luther King was. He set out to flush out an illegal law.
And he found it. While the Sauk Rapids cops knew the law – citizens with carry permits are allowed to carry uncased long arms in public – the Saint Cloud PD didn’t. They arrested Gottwalt, citing a city ordinance.
We’ll let the Gun Owners Civil Rights Alliance take up the story next:
As Professor Olson notes in the video, Saint Cloud can’t regulate guns differently than the state does, due to the state’s pre-emption ordinance. Which makes the SCPD’s arrest an illegal one.
Gottwalt is sueing the city. I hope he wins and wins big.
