Iowa: Bill to Legalize Suppressor Ownership Needs Your Immediate Help to Get a Senate Hearing

Monday, March 10, 2014

There are only days left for House File 2381 to receive consideration by the Senate subcommittee and committee

As previously reported, House File 2381 -- NRA-supported suppressor legislation -- is in jeopardy of not receiving a hearing in the Senate Judiciary Committee, chaired by state Senator Robert Hogg (D-33).

Before it can be heard and voted on in the Senate Judiciary Committee, HF 2381 must first be heard by a subcommittee.  At this time, HF 2381 has been assigned to a subcommittee but no hearing has been scheduled, and time is now running out.  HF 2381 needs your strong support to move through this subcommittee, led by state Senator Thomas Courtney (D-44).

As reported here, even pro-gun legislation with the strongest bipartisan support has failed to pass in the state Senate in recent years, having repeatedly died in committee.  Your NRA-ILA has been diligently working with state Senators to ensure this trend does not continue, and that HF 2381 receives the fair hearing and vote a bill with such support deserves.  Your e-mails will make the difference!  Contact Senator Courtney and members of the Senate subcommittee IMMEDIATELY to ensure this bill gets a hearing in time for it to be considered by the Senate Judiciary Committee.  It must be heard by the full committee by Thursday.

Please also contact your state Senator and urge him or her to contact Senator Hogg and Senator Courtney and demand they schedule HF 2381 for a hearing.  To find your state Senator, click here.  To reach your state Senator by phone, call the Senate switchboard at (515) 281-3371.
