Gun Permit Background Check

To begin the process of a background investigation for a permit to purchase or permit to carry a firearm (not a "Conceal and Carry" permit), you must complete an application in person at:

MPD Licensing Division
Minneapolis City Hall
350 South 5th Street, Room 1A
Minneapolis, MN 55415-1389
(612) 673-3002 

Public service hours are 8:30 a.m. to 3:30 p.m., Monday through Friday.

The Hennepin County Sheriff's Office is responsible for issuing all "Conceal and Carry" permits for the County of Hennepin.

To inquire about whether you have passed the gun permit background check, call the Police Department’s License Investigations Division at (612) 673-3002.
