Iowa: Right to Keep and Bear Arms Constitutional Amendment Introduced

This week, state Senator Brad Zaun (R-20) offered Senate Joint Resolution 2, a bill that offers the first consideration of a Right to Keep and Bear Arms constitutional amendment.  SJR 2 was co-authored by all members of the majority Senate caucus.  Forty-four states currently have Right to Keep and Bear Arms constitutional amendments.  It’s time for Iowa to join these states by protecting the Second Amendment rights of Iowans in their own constitution!

SJR 2 would provide the strongest possible protection for your gun rights, guaranteeing in the state constitution your Right to Keep and Bear Arms against any infringements or restrictions for you and future generations of Iowans. 

The Senate Judiciary Committee is expected to take sub-committee action on SJR 2 next week.  Your NRA-ILA will keep you apprised of upcoming legislative action on this important constitutional measure.
