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.
Iowa is one of just nine states in the entire country that prohibits its citizens from owning a firearms suppressor. Despite how theyre 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 this doesnt eliminate the noise of a gun shot (as many would have you believe) it does lower it enough that the ear damaging effects to the shooter and those around them are reduced by a significant margin. Many European countries require gun owners to own suppressors as a common courtesy to those around them.
HF 2280 Removes power to suspend Second Amendment rights during an emergency. Passed the House, 67 31
This bill would prohibit the confiscation of firearms, ammunition, and other Second Amendment rights during a disaster emergency proclamation or public disorder declared by the governor, or any other state official, or any community within the State of Iowa. In essence this bill would keep Hurricane Katrina style confiscation of firearms from happening in Iowa.
HF 2281 Removal of a ban on parents teaching children about handguns under supervision. Passed the House 62-36
Here is the relevant portion:

...I, for one, will not be happy until all state and federal authorities comply with the 2nd amendment as written:
...the right of the people to keep and bear Arms, shall not be infringed."
I would hope that they already know the definition of the word 'infringe'.
Yippee, maybe we Iowans will finally get to pay the same, $200 FEE everyone else pays to the Nanny State for the privilege of buying a suppressor.
We The Sheeple!
