Introduced by state Representative Matt Windschitl (R-17), this important legislation would prohibit the publication of the names and addresses of individuals possessing permits to acquire and carry.
In other parts of the country, anti-gun media outlets abused their privileges under the Freedom of Information Act and have jeopardized the safety of law-abiding citizens by publishing the names and addresses of registered gun owners. Contrary to their claims, these media elites have not increased public safety. Rather, they have simply provided a map for criminals to use for their next burglary and firearm theft. This legislation would prevent this from happening in Iowa, and would also crack down on straw purchasers and other people who knowingly attempt to illegally or fraudulently purchase firearms. HF 81 now moves to the House floor for consideration.
Please contact your state Representative TODAY and urge him or her to support HF 81.
