Sweeping change: New state gun law begins
Law enforcement is about to get more complicated.
Take this scenario: It's after midnight at a local convenience store. A clerk at the counter spots someone browsing by the magazines. A handgun appears to protrude from the person's jacket pocket.
Fearful of robbery, the clerk dials 911.
With that information, River Falls Police Chief Roger Leque says his officers would respond quickly to check out the armed suspect.
