Dear Commissioner Campion,


Minn. Stat.609.66, Subdivision 1g specifies that a person who “possesses a dangerous weapon, ammunition, or explosives in any state building within the capitol area described in section 15.50, other than the National Guard Armory” is guilty of a felony, except for several classes of persons, including “persons who carry pistols according to the terms of a permit issued under section 624.714 and who so notify the sheriff or the commissioner of public safety, as appropriate.” (Minn. Stat. 609.66, Subd 1g, (b)(2))


This letter is my notification to you that as a citizen, I may visit buildings in or near the Minnesota State Capital Area. As long as I have a valid permit to carry a pistol, it is likely that when I do so, I will have my pistol in my possession.


Please consider this as the required notification, securing for me the exemption specified in Minn. Stat. 609.66 Subd 1g, (b)(2). A copy of the front and back of my:


Current permit to carry a pistol which expires June XX, 200X,


Minnesota Drivers License are included.


Thank you.


Very truly yours,
