I am moving to MN soon from a very gun-friendly state in the south.
I have a pre-ban AK and a post-ban AR.
What laws, rules, or regulations should I be aware of before I move? Am I required to register these rifles with the local LE? State LE? Should I just leave them behind?
Please advise. Thanks in advance.

You don't have to register post-bans. Pre-bans, however, are a different story. You must be a resident of the state for at least 6 months before you're able to legally possess a pre-ban.

There is a loophole. You can do a private transfer to a resident, who can then transfer the weapon back to you after your 6 month residency requirement has been met.

I'd be happy to help you out with this situation. All I ask in return is 1000 rounds of ammo for said pre-ban (non-refundable).

I'll be needing mags too.





Just kidding - we're a Socialist state, but we're not as bad as MD.....yet. There are no specific state restrictions on assault weapons, other than needing a permit to acquire if you're buying a new one.

No special requirements... The only caveat is that if you want to purchase hadnguns or black rifles you will need to obtain a "permit to purchase". No charge for this. It reall amounts to getting your backround check done in advance.

No charge FedGunner? Then why did I have to pay $10? Did I get the "greenhorn" fee?

Jakezor.....you should get your money back when they give you the permit to buy.......there is no charge for the permits......the Cottage Grove PD tried that and got burned......

Welcome to MN giacutter!


I hope you have a great time here.


If you don't mind me asking, whereabouts in the state are you moving to?
