Several new firearms related bills have been introduced in the Iowa House over the past several days. Here is a rundown of each of them:
* HF 2113 This bill would restore Constitutional Carry rights to Iowans. This bill is currently assigned to a Public Safety Subcommittee of Reps. Tjepkes, Baudler, and R. Olson.
* HF 2114 This bill would put and end to the patchwork of anti-carry ordinances, rules, and regulations that localities have adopted since Iowa went to a Shall Issue system of permit issuance on 1/1/11. This bill is currently assigned to a Public Safety Subcommittee of Reps. Windschitl, Alons, and R. Olson.
* HF 2115 This is a clean-up bill that will fix some of the problems that currently exist in Chapter 724. This bill is currently assigned to a Public Safety Subcommittee of Reps. Windschitl, Baudler, and Wolfe.
* HF 2116 This bill would make the Iowa Permit to Acquire optional instead of mandatory, and it is currently assigned to a Public Safety Subcommittee of Reps. Tjepkes, Baudler, and R. Olson.

Yes we Iowan’s need to keep fighting for our second amendment rights. We’ve come a long way baby.
Surely Michael Gronstal, the ‘RAT majority leader with all the power in the do-nothing Iowa Senate, won’t let any of this see the light of day. He’s probably confident their passing the shall-issue law should be more than enough to keep us gun nuts happy for a good, long time.
Hopefully we can add castle doctrine to that list next year. Right now it’s all the blood on the floor inside the door.
