A gun control hearing hosted by the Minnesota Senate Public Safety and Judiciary Committee is set to hold gun control hearings on Tuesday in Hibbing. The move comes after Sen. Warren Limmer, committee chair, announced last month that the panel would hit the road to discuss plans for requiring background checks at the time of transfer of a firearm. Also up for discussion: allowing law enforcement to remove a person’s firearms if they’re believed to pose a danger to others or themselves. Here is a rundown of what to expect at Tuesday’s event.

What: Committee on Judiciary and Public Safety Finance and Policy to present an informational hearing. No votes will be taken, and no amendments will be considered.

When: 1 p.m. Tuesday, Jan. 21
