Legislative update week 14

Legislative update week 14


The 2016 legislative session will be over very soon. Some legislators are predicting the session could be complete as soon as Friday. Lawmakers’ per diem payments end Tuesday, and it’s an election year. So you can bet they want to get this session wrapped up and get home as quickly as possible.

We need to you to make it clear that they have unfinished business in the Senate. HF2314, the Privacy Protection Act, is fully eligible for a vote in the full Senate. This bill protects hundreds of thousands of Iowans who have a Permit to Carry or Permit to Acquire from having their personal information collected and broadcast worldwide. This has happened before here in Iowa, and it’s had very real consequences for a number of our members. We’ve been working for the last two years to get this law changed. This year we’ve pushed this bill farther than ever before. But the clock is ticking on the 2016 session, and we need all the help we can to make this meaningful bill unavoidable for the Senate in the final days of the 2016 legislative session.


Finally, thanks to the hundreds of you who joined us yesterday at the American Suppressor Association’s suppressor rally in Searsboro. The event featured the biggest suppressor manufacturers, free ammo and plenty of cans to try out. We joined the ASA, the National Rifle Association and the folks from Brownell’s for this great event.

We were proud to accept the American Suppressor Association’s 2016 Partnership Award on behalf of all of you who helped us legalize suppressors in Iowa. We’re extremely proud to have you all on our team. You can read our After Action Report from the suppressor rally on the website.
