Iowa Lawmaker Introduces RKBA Constitutional Amendment

An Iowa lawmaker has introduced a measure for a state constitutional amendment protecting the right to keep and bear arms.

Republican state Sen. Brad Zaun offered Senate Joint Resolution 2, which was co-authored by all members of the majority Senate caucus. Forty-four states currently have Right to Keep and Bear Arms (RKBA) constitutional amendments.

According to NRA-ILA, SJR 2 would provide the strongest possible protection for Iowans’ gun rights, guaranteeing in the state constitution the Right to Keep and Bear Arms against any infringements or restrictions. The measure is expected to be considered in subcommittee next week.
