Iowa Governor Signs Omnibus Pro-Gun Bill

posted on April 14, 2017

Strengthened self-defense rights for law-abiding citizens. The restored right of legal gun owners to carry in the Capitol. Restriction of the state’s powers during a state of emergency. And restored rights of parents to make decisions about their youth and handguns. 

These are just a few effects of the bill signed into Iowa law Thursday by Gov. Terry Branstad. House File 517 is just one of many firearm bills that are being passed across the nation. 

“In state legislatures across America, lawmakers are expanding law-abiding citizens’ constitutional right to self-protection,” said Chris W. Cox, executive director of the NRA Institute for Legislative Action. “The NRA and our 5 million members thank the Iowa legislature and Gov. Branstad for working to strengthen Iowans’ Second Amendment rights so they have the freedom to protect themselves and their families.”
