    School Ground Carry Bill advances!
    Full Senate Debate and Vote Expected

    A short time ago the Senate Judiciary Committee passed SSB1017 by an overwhelming 12 to 2 margin!

    This is a big step forward. Not only does the School Ground Carry bill now go to the full Senate for floor debate and a vote, but it is also now “funnel proof.” Meaning it cannot fall victim to a procedural method sometimes used to kill bills via “scheduling” issues.

    The Iowa Firearms Coalition thanks Senator Jason Schultz of Crawford County for authoring this valuable bill! The two votes against this bill came from Senators Rob Hogg of Cedar Rapids and Janet Peterson of Des Moines.

    This bill will directly benefit tens of thousands of Iowa parents. There’s simply no reason why these loving parents and lawful citizens should have to risk becoming a felon for simply having the legal means to protect their most valuable assets — their children!

    Please help us spread the word to your co-workers, family members, and friends about the School Ground Carry Bill.
