Just in time for the Fourth of July Revolution!

Iowa governor signs bill allowing permitless purchase, carry of handguns
[thehill.com]

Iowa Gov. Kim Reynolds (R) on Friday signed a bill that allows people to purchase and carry handguns in the state without a permit.

“Today I signed legislation that protects the 2nd Amendment rights of Iowa’s law-abiding citizens while still preventing the sale of firearms to criminals and other dangerous individuals,” Reynolds wrote in a statement.

“We will never be able to outlaw or prevent every single bad actor from getting a gun, but what we can do is ensure law-abiding citizens have full access to their constitutional rights while keeping Iowans safe,” she added.

The legislation, which some advocates are calling “constitutional carry,” according to the Des Moines Register, will go into effect on July 1.

The bill makes it optional for Iowans to obtain handgun carry permits and go through background checks when purchasing firearms through unlicensed sales, including websites and gun shows, The Associated Press reported.

If individuals in Iowa opt to not receive permits, however, they must pass a background check when purchasing from a federally licensed dealer, the Des Moines Register noted.

In addition, Iowans who do not have a permit or go through safety training will be permitted to carry a gun into public places, including grocery stores and malls, according to The Associated Press.

The bill does, however, require courts to report to a state law enforcement database when an individual is deemed ineligible to be in possession of a firearm because of mental health reasons, the Des Moines Register reported.

Lemme understand.

1. I can buy from a licensed dealer and get a background check.

2. I can buy from *anyone else* skip the background check.

3. Permits = worthless, meaningless.

Something about this doesn’t sound right, and a lot of it has to do with #2.

Minnesota did this already, and it was terrible - and we have a constitutional right to hunt and fish.

Glad to know, I will be avoiding wandering south unless I absolutely have to.

About 18 states had some form of permit-less carry before Iowa, they are just the latest. Many states have this for both handguns and long guns.

Except in the 1800s,' many frontier cities did not allow for open carry. Even then, guns were tools, not weapons.

We underestimate the stupid, and we do so at our own peril.

Stupid people, Carlo M. Cipolla explained, share several identifying traits: they are abundant, they are irrational, and they cause problems for others without apparent benefit to themselves, thereby lowering society’s total well-being. There are no defenses against stupidity, argued the Italian-born professor, who died in 2000. The only way a society can avoid being crushed by the burden of its idiots is if the non-stupid work even harder to offset the losses of their stupid brethren.
