Iowa: Carry Permit Reform and Information Protection Bill Amended and No Longer Favorable

Today, the Senate Judiciary Committee voted to amend House File 2314, the Carry Permit Reform and Information Protection Act.  In its original form, HF 2314 would’ve helped clarify Iowa’s carry permit law; however, the amendment added to the bill in committee only makes the process more confusing.  HF 2314 was passed along party lines by the Senate Judiciary Committee 8-4-1.

HF 2314 passed the Iowa House of Representatives in its original form with an overwhelming, bipartisan vote of 97-1.  The Senate took a highly-supported and favorable piece of legislation and turned it into a misguided bill that no longer benefits law-abiding gun owners as originally intended. 

Thank you to everyone who contacted the Senate Judiciary Committee members with your support for HF 2314 without this amendment.  Please stay tuned to www.nraila.org and your email inbox for further updates on other critical bills as Iowa’s 2016 legislative session progresses.
