Iowa passes massive expansion of gun rights, more states to follow?

Iowa passes massive expansion of gun rights, more states to follow?

It also lets gun owners bring weapons into the state capitol with a permit.

Radio Iowa reports that the legislation - HF 517 - also makes it legal for "children under the age of 14..."

Permit Privacy - The bill restricts the use and disclosure of information acquired about holders of nonprofessional permits to carry weapons and permits to acquire firearms.

Efforts to protect the Second Amendment rights of law-abiding citizens during natural disasters and emergency powers were birthed during the aftermath of Hurricane Katrina (2005), where the confiscation of firearms left law-abiding citizens vulnerable to looting and attack.

Terry Branstad (R) said Monday that he wanted polls to close earlier so as to "not have to wait up so late to see what the election results are". "Expanding the freedoms and solidifying the constitutional rights of Iowans should always be a goal".

The bill would allow officers to pull over drivers specifically for texting.

The National Conference of State Legislatures says noneconomic caps have been declared unconstitutional in 10 states, but several states have upheld such liability limits.

This report includes material from the Washington Post.

Tom Ferguson, executive director of the Iowa County Attorneys Association, said because the bill does not exempt city halls or courthouses, local jurisdictions would face a constant threat of lawsuits and damages.

"Iowans get their freedom back today", Windschitl said.

Gun control organizations pushed hard to derail HF 517 during the legislative process and urged the governor for a veto, arguing the package was a danger to public safety.

"As parents, we're deeply concerned about the effects the Stand Your Ground portion of this law will have on our communities", said Amber Gustafson, volunteer chapter leader with the Iowa Chapter of Moms Demand Action for Gun Sense in America.
