Today, the House Public Safety Subcommittee voted 2-1 to advance House Study Bill 254, which greatly improves self-defense in Iowa. The full House Public Safety Committee will hear HSB 254 tomorrow. Please contact committee members and ask them to SUPPORT HSB 254.
House Study Bill 254 allows a law-abiding adult to carry a concealed firearm, without first needing to obtain government permission. This ensures that citizens have their right to self-defense without government red tape or delays. In addition, it also adds the option for law-abiding citizens to pass a federal background check to acquire a handgun without obtaining a Permit to Acquire, ensures that public housing cannot deny Second Amendment rights to tenants, ensures that local governments cannot restrict lawful carrying of firearms, expands the types of training accepted for a Permit to Carry Weapons, and other Second Amendment provisions.
Again, please contact committee members and ask them to SUPPORT HSB 254.
