Iowa: Gov. Reynolds Signs Constitutional Carry Legislation

H/T AmmoLand.

Thank you Governor Kim Reynolds(R-IA)for making Iowa more Second Amendment friendly.

U.S.A. -(AmmoLand.com)- Friday, April 2nd, Governor Kim Reynolds signed House File 621 and House File 756 into law. With HF 756, Iowa joins the 18 other states that have constitutional/permitless carry. Gov. Reynolds had this to say yesterday about taking this strong stance to affirm the right to self-defense:

“Today I signed legislation that protects the 2nd Amendment rights of Iowa’s law-abiding citizens while still preventing the sale of firearms to criminals and other dangerous individuals. This law also takes greater steps to inform law enforcement about an individual’s mental illness helping ensure firearms don’t end up in the wrong hands. We will never be able to outlaw or prevent every single bad actor from getting a gun, but what we can do is ensure law-abiding citizens have full access to their constitutional rights while keeping Iowans safe.” – Gov. Kim Reynolds 

In addition, HF 621 also sends a strong message. President Biden has promised to repeal the federal law protecting the firearms industry from frivolous lawsuits as the main part of his assault on the Second Amendment. With her signature on this bill, Gov. Reynolds ensures that Iowa has an additional layer of protection to prevent anti-gun extremists from attempting to bankrupt law-abiding businesses by suing them for the third party, criminal misuse of their legal products.

NRA thanks Gov. Reynolds for protecting and promoting the Second Amendment rights of law-abiding Iowans. Please stay tuned to www.nraila.org and your email inbox for further updates.

Iowa: Gov. Reynolds Signs Pro-Gun & Pro-Hunting Bills

Thank you, Governor Kim Reynolds(R-IA)for standing up for the Second Amendment and hunting rights of Iowans.

U.S.A. -(AmmoLand.com)- Yesterday, Governor Kim Reynolds signed House File 2502 to protect shooting ranges from being shut down by unreasonable local ordinances and ensure that Second Amendment rights remain protected across the state. On June 18th, she signed House File 716 to improve hunting opportunities in Iowa by defining the types of cartridges that may be used for deer hunting and expanding opportunities for youth hunters to hunt under the supervision of an adult.

House File 2502 protects shooting ranges from onerous or burdensome zoning regulations. Law-abiding citizens utilize shooting ranges to practice marksmanship skills, to ensure that their self-defense and sporting arms are in order, for recreation, and to teach the responsible use of and respect for firearms to others. This critical legislation will protect shooting ranges and the Second Amendment for present and future generations.

Preemption legislation is designed to stop municipalities from creating a patchwork of different laws throughout the state that may potentially turn a law-abiding citizen into a criminal for simply crossing a jurisdictional line. It also ensures that Second Amendment rights are equally protected for all Iowans, regardless of where they reside.

House File 716 clarifies which cartridges are allowed for use in hunting deer by establishing a minimum muzzle energy rather than ambiguous physical characteristics. This will expand hunting opportunities by allowing hunters to use commonly-owned firearms chambered in modern calibers such as those that have been available to American consumers for over a century. In addition, HF 716 ensures that supervised youth hunting is protected throughout Iowa.
