THE IOWA SENATE HAS GIVEN FINAL APPROVAL TO A BILL THAT WOULD NO LONGER REQUIRE IOWANS TO GET STATE PERMITS FOR BUYING AND FOR CARRYING HANDGUNS IN PUBLIC.

REPUBLICAN SENATOR JASON SCHULTZ OF SCHLESWIG, SAYS THE BILL FUNDAMENTALLY CHANGES THE RELATIONSHIP BETWEEN THE STATE AND ITS CITIZENS.

DEMOCRATS LIKE SENATOR TONY BISIGNANO OF DES MOINES SAY EASING GUN LAWS ISN’T A PRIORITY FOR MOST IOWANS.

IF THE GOVERNOR SIGNS THE BILL INTO LAW, THERE WILL STILL BE FEDERAL BACKGROUND CHECKS FOR PURCHASES AT LICENSED GUN DEALERS, BUT A STATE PERMIT — AND THE REQUIRED BACKGROUND CHECK — WOULD NO LONGER BE REQUIRED FOR PRIVATE SALES OF PISTOLS AND REVOLVERS.

THE IOWA SENATE HAS ALSO SENT THE GOVERNOR A GUN-RELATED BILL THAT PROVIDES LEGAL PROTECTION TO COMPANIES THAT MAKE GUNS AND AMMUNITION.

SENATOR SCHULTZ SAYS THE PROPOSAL PREVENTS FRIVOLOUS LAWSUITS FROM BEING FILED

SENATOR NATE BOULTON , A DEMOCRAT FROM DES MOINES WHO IS AN ATTORNEY, SAYS PEOPLE WHO ARE INJURED BY A MALFUNCTIONING GUN WOULD HAVE NO LEGAL RECOURSE.
