HF716 Advanced in Iowa House

The debate over HF716 (Deer Hunting Improvement) boiled down to whether or not Iowans can be trusted to take their kids’ hunting and who trusts the people of Iowa.

“I don’t have that same degree of trust of all the parents in Iowa,” said Rep. Staed. “Read the paper. All parents that are 21 years old are not responsible.”

Rep. Staed hasn’t met a gun restriction that he doesn’t like, but we were pretty proud of the response delivered here by Rep. Matt Windschitl.


The measure passed 57-40 in the Iowa House and is ready for the Senate.
