HF 2092, a "Shall Issue" bill, will be coming up for a vote in the Iowa House sometime this next week. It passed the House Public Safety Committee on an 18-3 vote. This bill is "Shall Issue", but a sheriff can still deny for cause, much like the Minnesota law. Any denial or restriction must be explained in a certified letter to the applicant within 15 days of the filing of the application. Training is made uniform across the state, with acceptable trainers including certified NRA instructors. A shooting test is made mandatory for the initial issue. Reciprocity (recognition, actually) will be extended to all states' permits with equal or greater training standards, as posted on the website of the Iowa Department of Public Safety website. Finally, sheriffs will be given civil immunity for issuing in good faith.
Now is the time for action. If you live in Iowa, or travel to Iowa, please contact members of the Iowa House of Representatives and ask for their support of HF 2092.

Nice, particularly if IA will recognize CO permits.
Iowa people start writing letters. Not petitions.
Put your name on it and tell your law critters vote for it or be gone.
E-mail isn't bad either.

I hope this passes. I was born and raised in Iowa and have affection for the state. I'd like to see Iowa modernize the CCW law to be compatible with most other states.
