Iowa: Important Self-Defense Legislation Introduced

On February 6th, The Family Defense Act, House File 259, was introduced to improve the ability of law-abiding citizens to defend themselves and their families by reducing arbitrary boundaries that leave them defenseless.  HF 259 has not yet been assigned to a committee for further consideration.  Please contact your state Representative and urge them to SUPPORT HF 259.  Click the “Take Action” button below to contact your state Representative.

House File 259, introduced by Representative Matt Windschitl (R-17), would allow Iowa Permit to Carry Weapons (PCW) holders to go onto school grounds to pick up and drop off students without having to first unload and lock up their firearms in their vehicles.  In addition, it would also prevent employers from prohibiting employees to store locked firearms in their personal vehicles while on the employer’s parking lot.  So called “gun-free-zones” are arbitrary boundaries that only disarm law-abiding citizens and leave them defenseless while doing nothing to affect criminals.
