Welcome from your Neighbor to the Northwest, and a former IA resident.
I hope you live in a favorable CCW county!
Welcome from a fellow Iowan. Hope to hear more from you.
If you're interested in helping change Iowa's CCW law, feel free to check us out at IowaCarry.org, too. Not as inclusive as CombatCarry.com, but we're an active bunch working to make Iowa a Shall Issue state.
Pramunitus is right, the IC folks are really ramping up. We should all be helping them with our support. I believe IA is a "resident carry only" state, in addition to being a "may issue". If they should go to "shall issue" someday, those of us from neighboring states may be able to get our permits recognized there. This is of special interest to me as I live squarely sandwiched between IA and NE, neither place recognizes Non-resident permits currently. Almost daily I need to do the old Border Disarm procedure as I do business in those states. (under 15 minutes from home).Originally Posted by Pramunitus
IACarry.org is having a fund-raiser/membership drive these days too. I am mailing 5 bucks to them to voice my out of state support for their cause.
Sorry for the thread drift, but Iowa's policy is a real sore spot for me and I felt it a good opportunty to spout off about Iowa Carry.. I used to live in one of the "ruled" counties.
