State Representative and Minneapolis mayoral candidate Raymond Dehn is calling for major policing changes, proposing to take away guns from the majority of officers.
Dehn is one of several candidates running to beat current Minneapolis Mayor Betsy Hodges in the fall.
Fox9 reports that he recently won the support of voters at the Democratic Farmer Labor convention and now his call to disarm police of their side guns is garnering major attention.
Dehn believes that officers should leave guns in their cars and only access them when needed.
But not to worry, Dehn would be open to officers using a night stick or pepper spray to protect themselves.
