    Iowa Governor Terry Branstad signed a comprehensive bill, HF 517, to modernize Iowa's gun laws on Thursday, 14 April, 2017.The reforms had been bottled up for years by a few legislators, mostly Democrats, that were voted out of office last year. An archaic provision prevented children form receiving safety training for handguns.From wcfcourier.com: One of the provisions of the bill that took effect immediately allows children below the age of 14 to handle pistols or revolvers under the supervision of an adult parent, guardian or instructor — which directly affected the Gibson sisters ages 13 and 11.“I think the...

    The Iowa Omnibus gun law reform bill is close to passing the legislature, and is likely to be signed by Governor Branstad.From the desmoinesregister.com:House File 517, which has already passed the Iowa House, was approved on a 33-17 vote. Because the bill was amended, it must return to the House. But House Republican leaders are expected to accept the changes, which means it will likely be headed soon to Gov. Terry Branstad, who is expected to sign it.House File 517 is a weapons law reform bill. The authors of the bill appear to have searched through various weapons laws...

    Multiple gun law reform bills are advancing in Iowa. Just before noon on 23 February, 2016, the House had accomplished the following: HF2279 Hearing Protection Act – Removes ban on gun mufflers. Approved in the Senate last year, did not clear the House. Today, passed the House 74-24.From iowafcorg:  Iowa is one of just nine states in the entire country that prohibits its citizens from owning a firearms suppressor. Despite how they’re portrayed by Hollywood and gun control advocates suppressors do not silence a firearm. In reality they cut the noise signature of a gunshot by approximately 20-25%. While...
  • Iowa Supreme Court labels all stun guns as ‘dangerous weapons’ (deem permit is needed)

    02/20/2016 11:24:03 AM PST · by Red in Blue PA · 32 replies
    DES MOINES, Iowa (AP) — The Iowa Supreme Court says a stun gun, under Iowa law, is a dangerous weapon. The court made the conclusion as it affirmed the conviction of a woman charged with carrying a dangerous weapon after police found a stun gun in her purse in 2013 during an arrest for theft at a Waterloo Walmart. Taquala Howse, who is 25, appealed saying her small hand-held stun gun isn’t dangerous. A district judge convicted Howse, finding the state had proven it was dangerous.

    Politico ^ | February 11, 2016
    A pair of Texas litigators are following Cruz's lead as they gird for a Supreme Court battle this April. On the campaign trail, Ted Cruz has vowed to rescind President Barack Obama's controversial executive actions on immigration - but it's two of his former aides who could actually kill it. Scott Keller and Chip Roy - who served in top roles in Cruz's Senate office - are now litigators on behalf of Texas, leading the lawsuit against Obama's unilateral actions, which are at the cornerstone of the president's immigration legacy. The duo's positions also underscore Cruz's enduring influence and reach...

    CNN is not only desperate to absolve itself of its legitimate responsibility for spreading the false idea that Dr. Ben Carson was dropping out of the presidential race last week, CNN is also hoping to complete a three-bank shot that will damage Sen. Ted Cruz (R-TX) in the process. Saturday night, CNN went so far as to have their phony left-wing "fact-checker" Tom Foreman lie about Cruz. For all of this to make sense, let's start at the beginning...

    Politics is a fast-paced and unpredictable game, and sometimes, unfortunate things happen. That's the best way I can describe what occurred on caucus night in Iowa when CNN implied that Ben Carson was dropping out of the Republican race, and the Cruz campaign swiftly alerted caucus-goers that they should consider voting for Ted Cruz ï»żinstead. Let's start from the beginning. Shortly before the Iowa caucus was set to begin, CNN's Jake Tapper reported: ...

    A day after the Iowa caucuses and a week from the New Hampshire primary, Senate Minority Leader Harry Reid is back blasting the lack of diversity in the states that come before his home of Nevada in the presidential nominating process. Asked about the outcome in Iowa, where Sen. Bernard Sanders, I-Vt., finishing very narrowly behind former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton, Reid highlighted his role in changing the process to put more focus on the subsequent contests in states with more diverse Democratic electorates. His efforts helped move Nevada’s Democratic caucuses earlier in the electoral calendar.

    One more day to the Iowa Caucuses - and the public is pretty sure they know what will happen. Voters aren't necessarily happy about the influence the first caucus and primary states hold. Still, many potential voters admit that what happens in Iowa and New Hampshire will be important in deciding how they will cast their ballot. In the latest national Economist/YouGov Poll, pluralities of both Republicans and Democrats think Iowa and New Hampshire have too much influence on who wins the parties' presidential nominations. Half the public isn't sure whether the Iowa-New Hampshire dominance needs to change, and partisans...

    If Donald Trump wants to make sure no Ted Cruz supporter will ever vote for him, he's doing a terrific job of it. How else to explain his most recent insult calling Cruz "an anchor baby in Canada"? This is pure insanity... and it's an entirely different kind of attack than what we're used to in politics, especially because it involves two people from the same party...

  • Radio ads hit Iowa: 'Politicians like Ted Cruz are the worst kind'

    Ted Cruz is under attack. The Texas senator's rise in Iowa presidential surveys has attracted criticism from all sides. America's Renewable Future, a bipartisan political group with the support of ethanol and agricultural industry workers, unleashed new digital and radio ads attacking Cruz in Iowa. The senator's opposition to ethanol mandates has drawn the ire of ARF, whose ads claim that Cruz's policy proposals "threaten rural Iowa and thousands of jobs." "Politicians like Ted Cruz are the worst kind: Hypocrites," the ad says. "There are millions of reasons Ted Cruz supports Big Oil instead of Iowa farmers. Call politician Ted...

    Ted Cruz, buoyed by tea party support and the backing of much of the conservative wing of the Republican Party, has surged to a virtual tie with Donald Trump in Iowa, generating the kind of momentum his team thinks will carry him deep into primary season. “Sixty-eight days until Iowa,” said Cruz spokeswoman Catherine Frazier, when asked whether the Texas senator was peaking too soon. “It’s game time.” A Quinnipiac University survey released Tuesday found Cruz essentially deadlocked with longtime poll-leader Donald Trump in Iowa: Trump stood at 25 percent and Cruz at 23 percent, within the margin of error....

    Rep. Steve King,an influential conservative who represents Iowa's Fourth Congressional District, is warning Americans and Iowans that a massive amnesty for all of America's illegal aliens may be unstoppable if Sen. Marco Rubio (R-FL) is elected president. "With Rep. Paul Ryan (R-WI) as Speaker, we have this big question about what amnesty might be not in this Congress but with the next president," King said on Breitbart News Daily on SiriusXM 125 the Patriot Channel with Breitbart News’ Executive Chairman Stephen K. Bannon. “I have apprehension about that.” King says he thinks that the final battle ahead of Iowa's caucuses...
