OC…IOWA SUPREME COURT. ;21

TUESDAY, THE WOODBURY COUNTY BOARD OF SUPERVISORS VOTED TO ALLOW GUNS IN THE COURTHOUSE, EXCEPT FOR COURTROOMS, CITING A LAW PASSED BY THE IOWA LEGISLATURE IN THE SPRING.

DREW WAS OUT OF TOWN WHEN THE BOARD TOOK THEIR VOTE BUT WAS PREPARED FOR THEIR DECISION:

THE SHERIFF SAYS HE WILL NOT ABIDE BY THE BOARD’S DECISION TO IGNORE THE COURT ORDER.

DREW SAYS HE WOULD RATHER BE IN CONTEMPT WITH THE COUNTY BOARD THAN THE IOWA SUPREME COURT.
