(ABC 6 News) -- A well-known gun dealer in Albert Lea has announced his bid for the Minnesota House.

Milan Hart, is the owner of Hart Bros. Weaponry in Albert Lea and while he recognizes his own business may be off-putting to some voters, he wants people to look beyond the weapons and focus on the more important issues.

"There's people that are extremely anti-gun that won't vote for me because they know I'm pro-gun, I'm pro-Second Amendment, and there's people that will vote for me simply because I am pro-gun, " he says, "but I want them to know the issues, I don't want to be a one issue person," says Hart, who is a Republican.

Hart will be running against current member Shannon Savick, DFL-Wells for House District 27A.
