Iowa Governor Chet Culver (D) signed Senate File 2379 into law today making Iowa the 41st state to be a 'shall issue' state. It previously passed The House of Representatives by a vote of 81 to 15, and the Senate by a vote of 44 to 4. It seems to be a very well crafted bill that has got most of the issues straightened out on the first go-round. It is a permit to carry ... period, with no requirement for concealment. I expect the reciprocity requests to commence shortly ...

I can't believe it took this long for IA to pass this bill. The state of the Union is grievous indeed, this step is a necessary step toward the re-establishing of the RULE OF LAW in our REPUBLIC.

Yes, it is about time this happened. It sucks trying to drive through that state without even having a peaceable journey law.
Prez. Jugears Hussein SHOULD show proof of, if nothing else, competence of something at the very least.
Just found this little tidbit today ... the Sheriffs aren't too happy about loosing their 'god-like'control over who gets the permits.

It is good to see Iowa pass a 'shall issue' law. It is even better to see that the law does not require concealment.
