Iowa: Senate Committee Chairman Refusing to Hear Suppressor Legislation

Tuesday, March 4, 2014

With Deadlines Approaching Next Week, Senate Committee only has Days Left to Consider this Widely-Supported Bill

Last week, on the heels of powerful grassroots support, the Iowa House of Representatives passed legislation to legalize suppressor ownership and use, House File 2381, with overwhelming bipartisan support.  HF 2381 has been assigned to the Senate Judiciary Committee, chaired by Senator Robert Hogg (D-33), and at this time has not been assigned to a subcommittee.  Last year, Senator Hogg refused to give a fair hearing to another bill which received strong bipartisan (95-3) support in the House: NRA-backed House File 535.

Now, Senator Hogg has stated publicly that he does not plan to take up any firearms legislation this year, even going so far as to declare that he does not see anything urgent about this legislation, and according to this article, to challenge Iowans to make it a campaign issue.

The Iowa Senate has consistently failed to pass even the most strongly supported pro-gun legislation in recent years.  Your NRA-ILA has been diligently working with members on both sides of the aisle to change this.  However, it appears that the Senate is set to repeat this cycle.

To the NRA, this is simply an unacceptable attitude for your elected officials to take when it concerns your rights and freedoms, on any scale.  Your rights deserve a fair hearing and now is the time for you to demand one.  Contact Senator Hogg and members of the Senate Judiciary Committee IMMEDIATELY to express your support for HF 2381 and request a fair hearing for it.
