Vote Pending on Iowa Gun Bill
Vote expected on HF517 (formerly HSB133)
Now that HSB133 has advanced out of committee it has been reassigned a new bill number. HSB133 is now House File 517 (HF517).
Leadership in the Iowa House of Representatives has done something pretty extraordinary. They’ve reached out to IFC and indicated that they’re going to do everything they can to get our bill HF517 to the floor for debate and a vote on Tuesday, March 7th.

Why is this a big deal? Well, March 7th is when IFC is hosting Second Amendment Day in the capitol.
To put it another way, House leadership has told us they’re adjusting their schedule so our members can see HF517 voted on in person. This kind of thing never happens. Politicians don’t operate this way. For House leadership to reach out on their own accord and tell us this says a lot how much they respect us, and that’s all because of you!
HF517 is the biggest quote unquote “gun bill” in state history. If we get this bill passed your Second Amendment freedoms will take the biggest leap forward since 1846 when Iowa became the 29th state in union. Second Amendment Day 2017 will offer a prime opportunity to watch history in the making. The day starts with a presentation at 10 A.M. and ends once the House wraps up its vote on HF517.
10:00 – 10:45 A.M. – Presentation and speakers – Room 102
10:45 – 12:00 P.M. – Lobby time
12:00 – ??? – Potential House of Representatives vote on HSB133
