Iowa: Your Urgent Action Needed to Ensure Pro-Gun Bills Advance in Des Moines!

This past Tuesday was a big day for Second Amendment rights in The Hawkeye State.  As previously reported, five pro-gun bills were passed by the Iowa House of Representatives with bipartisan support.  The work done by gun rights activists across Iowa made the difference in having these bills move through the House, but our work is just beginning. 

The bills now move to the state Senate.  The time is NOW to double our efforts and prove to Iowa’s Senators that law-abiding gun owners are watching their actions and demanding these bills be passed.  Please contact the members of the Senate Judiciary Committee and the Senate Natural Resources & Environment Committee in SUPPORT of these critical pro-gun bills.  Please click the “Take Action” button below to contact the committee members in support of these bills!

Four of the five pro-gun bills have been referred to the Senate Judiciary Committee for consideration.  These bills include:

  • House File 2279 – Hearing Protection Act, which would allow for the sale, use and possession of firearm suppressors in Iowa.
  • House File 2280 – Freedom Protection Act, which would prevent gun and ammunition confiscation during a state of emergency.
  • House File 2281 – Youth Safety & Parental Rights Act, which would correct a discrepancy in current law that prevents individuals under 14 years of age from learning gun safety and target shooting with a handgun under their parent’s permission and supervision. 
  • House File 2314 – Carry Permit Reform & Personal Information Protection, which would provide clarification to the Iowa’s current carry permit law and respect law-abiding gun owner’s right to privacy by keeping all personally identifiable information of applicants and holders of permits to carry weapons and permits to acquire pistols/revolvers, confidential. 

The fifth bill, House File 2283, which would allow for law-abiding citizens to carry a firearm while riding in an ATV or snowmobile, has been referred to the Senate Natural Resources & Environment Committee. 

Now is the time to voice your support for these measures, as the committee process will determine if these bills will be given full consideration by the Senate.  This is an urgent request, as we have only TWO WEEKS to move these bills out of committee.  By legislative rule, the Senate must move all House proposals out of committee by March 11.  Those bills that fail to pass are not eligible for floor action.  Once again, please click the “Take Action” button to contact the committee members in support of these bills!

Your personal contact will go a long way in ensuring these pieces of legislation are given the attention and consideration they deserve.  Please forward this email to friends, family and fellow Second Amendment supporters in Iowa and encourage them to do the same.
