Votes on Hearing Protection & ATV Carry Acts scheduled for Tuesday

Iowans-

It appears Tuesday will be another big day for Second Amendment advocates in Iowa. The House is tentatively scheduled to vote on the Hearing Protection Act and the Senate is tentatively scheduled to vote on the ATV Carry Act. We say tentatively, because as we saw last week, the legislative calendar is not set in stone.

We fully expect the House to pass the Hearing Protection Act putting us one step away from legalizing suppressors in Iowa. ATV Carry Act and the Senate, well that’s not quite as clear-cut. Remember, this bill passed the House 78 to 20 and is unopposed by any official group of ATV riders, snowmobilers, or off-road vehicle clubs. Yet despite these irrefutable facts many Senate Democrats have got it in their heads that they should rewrite this bill and gut its original intent. They’re playing politics and attempting to add a poison amendment. There could be some real fireworks on the Senate floor when HF2283 is up for debate.

For those of you who are able to watch, here’s the link to live stream the Senate debate and vote on the ATV Carry Act – HF2283.

You can also follow this link to live stream the House debate and vote on the Hearing Protection Act’s (HF2279) amendment.

As always, there will be more updates to come. Don’t forget we’ll be updating our Facebook and Twitter pages throughout the day tomorrow with news from the capitol.
