Iowa House File 756 Signed Into Law: Permitless Carry, Private Gun Purchase; HF 621 Protecting Firearm Businesses

Carrying a firearm will no longer require a permit in Iowa as of July 1, 2021. They still have to undergo the Federal background checks from licensed gun dealers to acquire a firearm, but are not prohibited from purchasing a gun from a private person. The bill, House File 756, also has portions that deal with mentally ill persons. House File 621 was also signed into law, which prohibits frivolous 3rd party lawsuits intended to bankrupt gun distributors and manufacturers.

House File 621: A bill for an act establishing which actions may be brought against firearm, firearm accessory, and ammunition manufacturers, distributors, importers, trade associations, sellers, or dealers.

Permitless carry has been a trend lately, since the Biden administration made it clear that they were coming after law abiding gun owners. His statements about pulling protections from gun manufacturers are also in the fight for the 2nd amendment.

From House File 756:

… [Carrying a firearm has been included in House File 756]

ordinance, motion, resolution, policy, or amendment regulating
the ownership, possession, carrying, legal transfer, lawful
transportation, modification, registration, or licensing of
firearms, firearms attachments, or other weapons when the
ownership, possession, carrying, transfer, transportation, or
modification is otherwise lawful under the laws of this state.
An ordinance regulating firearms, firearms attachments, or
other weapons in violation of this section existing on or after
April 5, 1990, is void.

House File 756 was backed by the NRA, and Governor Kim Reynolds signed it into law on Friday.

People who fail to commit to the new law will be charged with a Class D felony, which is punishable by up to five years in prison. It will become a felony if a person sells, rents, or loans a firearm to someone the seller “knows or reasonably should know” isn’t legally allowed to get a gun or is intoxicated.

“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 said in a statement after signing the bill.

The Epoch Times

Biden has promised to repeal the Federal protection of firearms manufacturers (the PLCAA). House file 621 puts an extra layer of protection over firearms businesses, according to the NRA:

In addition, HF 621 also sends a strong message. President Biden has promised to repeal the federal law protecting the firearms industry from frivolous lawsuits as a main part of his assault on the Second Amendment. With her signature on this bill, Gov. Reynolds ensures that Iowa has an additional layer of protection to prevent anti-gun extremists from attempting to bankrupt law-abiding businesses by suing them for the third party, criminal misuse of their legal products.

NRA-ILA

The states we’ve seen moving toward more 2nd amendment rights instead of less are virtually all Republican. There is a divide in America that grows ever wider both over voting and over the 2nd amendment. The threat of gun confiscation started the American Revolution…what happens next?
