Thread: I'm surprised

    I'm surprised

    I'm surprised that this site hasn't been discussing the recent events in Iowa.

    Both houses of the Iowa legislature have overwhelming approved a bill, which the governor is expected to sign, making Iowa a "shall issue" state as of January 1, 2011. (As we all know, Iowa had remained strangely retrograde in its policy on CCW.) The language in the bill also states that Iowa will grant reciprocity to all other states. So starting next year, if you have a CCW permit in any state, you're good in Iowa. Apparently, your permit doesn't have to be resident, either, so a Maryland or New Jersey resident with a Florida or Utah permit will be able to carry in Iowa. (Iowa residents will need an Iowa permit, though.)

    Not sure about what Iowa will do about non-resident permits, but for most of us, that won't matter.

    That's great news. Keep us informed. I think the issue with the health care vote has been overshadowing most other "good" news these days.

    Thanks for the update,
    Peace...

    I think the reason it wasn't discussed is because NOBODY goes to Iowa except some politicians every four years.

    Ahem...I pass thru Iowa several times a year on my way to visit my son in Kansas. So, make that "some politicians and JJF". It'll be nice to be legal.
