|Will you be visiting the capitol to speak with your legislators or attend rally events? If you intend to legally carry your firearm inside any of the buildings within the six block capitol complex, you'll need to send notice to the commissioner of public safety before doing so (and you must have a valid permit to carry recognized by the state of Minnesota). You do not need to give notice if you will not be entering the buildings (ex: if you gather on the capitol steps for a rally).
It's best to include a photocopy of your valid permit to carry and both sides of your drivers license or ID, and send the notification Certified Mail and request a return receipt for proof of delivery.
Here's a link to a form letter you can print out and use to send your notification:
Notify Commissioner of Public Safety of your intent to carry inside capitol buildings
