• Legislative Alert – Pro-gun owner bills filed in IA legislature

    January 20, 2016


    Pro-gun owner bills filed

    Iowans,

    We’ve got our first real action of the 2016 legislative session. Several pro-gun owner bills have been officially filed and are beginning their journey through the legislative process. These bills address several items, they are:

    Youth Safety and Parental Rights Act
    HF2042
    Repeals Iowa’s ban on supervised youth handgun training
    Hearing Protection Act
    HF2043
    Legalizes suppressors in Iowa
    Emergency Protection Act
    HF2044
    Guarantees Second Amendment rights are not suspended during a state of emergency
    HF2066
    Allows lawful Permit to Carry holders to carry while using off-road vehicles

    These are the first of several pro-gun owner bills we’ll be lobbying for in 2016. We’ll be updating you as additional bills are filed (including gun control bills filed by anti-gunners in the Iowa legislature).

    We’ll be doing our part to get these pro-gun owner bills passed, but it’s crucial that we get you to do two things: 1) Contact your legislators and tell them you want to see them support these pieces of legislation. 2) Educate your friends and family about these issues.

    We try to do everything we can to make it as easy as possible for you to accomplish both of these tasks. Our Guide to Talking with Your Legislators gives easy step-by-step instructions on how to be a strong advocate for the Right to Keep and Bear Arms, and our Legislative Action Center makes it extremely easy to get in contact with your legislators. And we have a number of great resources on our website www.IowaFC.org to help you get educated and help educate your family and friends.

    We’re now firmly in the opening round of this year’s legislative fight.

    More updates to come.

    Thanks for your ongoing support.
