It is a common sight to see prisoners on work detail picking up trash along the side of the road. With any luck, they won’t run into the latest group to take on roadside cleanup: the Minnesota Carry Permit Holders.
In October, about a dozen gun enthusiasts deployed along a two-mile stretch of highway in Mendota Heights, Minn., for the group’s inaugural trash cleanup. All members displayed loaded (and legally registered) firearms. The MCPH had the blessing of the Minnesota Department of Transportation, and said they wanted to do a good deed. The relative usefulness of a loaded gun in picking up litter is subject to debate, but it is safe to assume that passing motorists took the courtesy of using an interior lane.
