  1. Help Iowa Become Shall Issue -call now

    I posted this here because even though it is specific to Iowa we need help from everyone!

    With just two weeks left for Governor Culver to sign Senate File 2379, anti-gun forces are actively urging Governor Culver to VETO the bill. Senate File 2379 would make Iowa a “shall issue” carry state and would require Sheriffs to issue an Iowa Permit to Carry Weapons to all applicants, unless they are subject to certain specific disqualifiers. Senate File 2379 was a huge victory for gun owners in the Hawkeye State but it won’t become law without the Governor’s support.

    Please contact Governor Culver TODAY and respectfully urge him to sign this important pro-gun legislation into law. This Bill contains a provision to honor all out of state permits.

    You can also call the Governor's office at 515-281-5211.

    Folks, we are almost at the finish line. We are two weeks away from a drop dead date. If Governor Colver decides to NOT sign this bill, it will automatically die, and we are back to square one. The Governor MUST hear from you, even if you've already contacted him once. Or twice. Let your voice be heard, and let him know that you expect him to sign this important piece of legislation into law!

    I wanted to emphasize what IAJack has already outlined in his post. This is a big step forward for the residents of Iowa and anyone who visits the state. I encourage all of you to take the time to contact Governor Culver's office and show your support for SF-2379. This new legislation will be a huge reform of the carry permit process and will be a great benefit for all.

    Specifically this NRA-backed bill would change Iowa from a "May-Issue" state to a "Shall-Issue" state. This legislation would require sheriffs to issue a permit to carry weapons to all applicants, unless they are subject to certain specific disqualifiers. This pro-gun legislation would:

    Increase the term of a permit from one year to five years

    Narrow the disqualifying circumstances for a permit to the federal minimum in most cases, while further narrowing state-specific disqualifiers

    Prevent the issuing officer from placing limits on or restricting the scope of a carry permit

    Ensure that denials, suspensions, and revocations of permits would be subject to both administrative and judicial review

    Grant recognition to all valid out-of-state permits

    Broaden the types of training that would fulfill the state-mandated training requirement for permit applicants

    Provide a means for persons who are prohibited from owning firearms under broad mental health-related disqualifiers and who do not pose a public safety risk to regain their rights


    Limit the information that can be required of a permit applicant and prevent the application process from being used as a de-facto firearm registration scheme

    Until the new system goes into effect on January 1, 2011, you will still be able to obtain a one year permit under the old system.


    Please help us out and contact Governor Culver's office and urge him to sign this legislation into law.

    Many thanks,

    Steve
