Iowa: State constitutional amendment and allowing guns in cars at schools are active in House.

Last year, a push by the NRA to pass a constitutional amendment in Iowa failed on a technicality. If it passed during consecutive two years, it would be placed on the ballot. The amendment would guarantee guns as an individual right. If this would happen, no gun regulations could ever be passed. Concerned citizens should advocate against this bill.

Also coming up for a vote soon is House File 636. Do you want loaded guns left on the seat of a car when your children are picked up from school? If not, advocate against this bill.
