Iowa: Remind Your Representative to Support The Family Defense Act

Under current law, Permit to Carry Weapons (PCW) holders are left defenseless when they choose to pick-up or drop-off their loved-ones at school or have to comply with the anti-self-defense policies their employer sets for parking lots.  Legislation is currently sitting in the Iowa state House of Representatives awaiting further action that would ensure law-abiding citizens can defend themselves and their families as they go about their daily activities.  House File 636, The Family Defense Act, remains a priority for the National Rifle Association and our members in Iowa.  Please contact your state Representative and remind them to SUPPORT HF 636.  Click the “Take Action” button to contact your state Representative

House File 636, introduced by Representative Matt Windschitl (R-17), would allow Iowa 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 firearms in their locked 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.

Again, please click the “Take Action” button above to contact your state Representative and urge them to SUPPORT HF 636.
