Iowa Gun Owners -The REAL Right-to-Purchase Bill

Iowa Gun Owners

Iowa Gun Owners

Iowa – -(Ammoland.com)- As we’ve told you before in these alerts, Iowa is one of only 14 states that requires law abiding citizens to get government permission to buy and sell handguns between private parties for self-defense.

In most of the rest of the nation you and I can legally sell handguns between ourselves, provided that none of us are felons, without a permit. Not so in Iowa.

This is wrong and Iowa Gun Owners is trying to stop it with our REAL Right-to-Purchase legislation.

This bill, currently without House or Senate numbers, would allow private transactions of handguns to take place without needing government permission first.

As some have already pointed out eliminating this permit would require a NICS check at a gun show or gun store. That’s only partially true, as a concealed weapons permit in Iowa allows you to buy a handgun.

So when this bill passes, you would be able to buy and sell handguns freely amongst yourselves, and for those sales that are conducted in a FFL situation, your concealed carry permit (should you choose to obtain one) would cover you there.

This is the best of both worlds!
This bill is being sponsored in both chambers and already we have 14 cosponsors in the House!

Please contact your elected officials today about this bill and urge that they co-sponsor while there is still time.

Dear Representative _______________,

It is alarming that Iowa is one of only fourteen states that requires law abiding citizens to get government permission to purchase handguns for self-defense.

As a mid-western state Iowa should be a leader in the fight for the 2nd Amendment.

That’s why I’m writing you today to ask for your support for the REAL Right-to-Purchase bill being introduced into the Iowa House this session by Rep. Kent Sorenson.

This legislation would allow all law abiding Iowans the option to buy and sell handguns, as private parties, without government intrusion, the way most of the rest of the states do.

For those who buy at gun shows or from gun stores, their concealed carry permit will still provide the necessary background check that the NICS system requires.

Please cosponsor and fully support this important legislation today!

Sincerely,

As a mid-western state Iowa should be a leader in the fight for the 2nd Amendment.

That’s why I’m writing you today to ask for your support for the REAL Right-to-Purchase bill being introduced into the Iowa Senate this session by Senator David Hartsuch.

This legislation would allow all law abiding Iowans the option to buy and sell handguns, as private parties, without government intrusion, the way most of the rest of the states do.

For those who buy at gun shows or from gun stores, their concealed carry permit will still provide the necessary background check that the NICS system requires.

That’s why we are working so hard to get a Vermont/Alaska style carry law passed in Iowa. In these states, unless you are a convicted felon or otherwise barred from possessing weapons, you don’t need a permit to carry a gun for self-defense! Join us now! Visit: www.iowagunowners.org
