    Minnesota residents are lining up to obtain gun permits, with an uptick of 6,000 permits last month. Fears over terrorism and President Obama's recent executive actions on gun control are responsible for the rush, though the Star Tribune added that some of their numbers might be permit renewals. Regardless, there still was a drastic increase in Minnesotans who wish to exercise their Second Amendment rights: Since the beginning of the new year, there have been at least 221,712 active permit holders — a 6,189 increase from December 2015, according to a monthly data report from the state's Bureau of Criminal...

    There's a new push to combat youth homelessness in the Twin Cities. It's specifically targeting youth who identify as gay, lesbian, bisexual or transgender. A report published in May by the Wilder Foundation says at least 2,200 youth are homeless any given night in Minnesota. One in six are LGBTQ. That's just a fraction of the young people all across the country looking for answers. Approximately 1.7 million young people across the country are homeless every year. The reasons vary, but there's one group who has an additional obstacle. "With LGBT youth in particular there's the added component of family...

The program is part of a three-city pilot project, which includes Boston and Los Angeles, launched more than a year ago by the Obama administration. Minneapolis' program, called Building Community...

This early in the primary season, with so many other contenders, receiving well over 1/3rd of the votes puts him in an enviable position. Marco Rubio also pulls in a significant number of voters at 20%, which puts him in line to get a fair share of the available delegates....

    Parents of a five-year old "transgender" child are asking the school's kindergarten class to take up the task of educating students on gender dysphoria, the condition of identifying as a sex that is opposite of one's biological makeup. The request has prompted opposition from a number of parents, while several others have voiced their support. According to the Daily Caller, it began when the parents of a gender-confused boy, who remains unidentified, sent their child to Nova Classical Academy, a charter school in St. Paul, Minnesota, wearing a girl's jumper and pink shoes. The parents, Hannah and Dave Edwards, indicated...

    Controversy over symbols and relics leftover from the American Civil War is hardly new. Earlier this year editorial and journalistic outrage was directed at supporters of the Confederate battle flag; but now in Minnesota a new angle on Civil War controversy is brewing. Gov. Mark Dayton, a Democrat, wants up to six paintings of Civil War events currently displayed in the state Capitol potentially removed to less visible locations. None of the paintings present Confederate forces in a positive light, and none of them feature a Confederate battle flag. In fact, each painting depicts Minnesota soldiers bravely charging into battle...

The resolution in no way referred to Islam or to whether Islam itself is to blame for global terrorism. It did not require anyone to contemplate the fact that the terrorists responsible...
