Legislative Priorities

Short term

Items that could theoretically be passed right now IF they were brought to a vote in both chambers of the legislature:

Legalize NFA items

Repeal the ban supervised youth shooting

Gun owner privacy protection

Emergency powers protection for Second Amendment rights

Preemption cleanup

Permit to Carry uniformity

Permit to Carry training clarification

Long term

Items that realistically stand little chance of passage right now because of the current make up of the Iowa legislature:

Constitutional amendment – adding the right to keep and bear arms to the Iowa Constitution

Stand Your Ground

Constitutional Carry
