Iowa: Vote to be Held Tomorrow on Arbitrarily Restricting Hunting Firearms

On May 10th at 9:30AM, the Iowa state Natural Resource Commission will be voting on potential rule changes to Chapter 94, including Item 10 on the proposal to change subrule 106.7(2) in order to arbitrarily restrict handguns that may be used for hunting and set an arbitrary limit on the number of cartridges that may be loaded in a firearm.  The Commission previously heard the proposal on May 1st.  Please click the “Take Action” button below or email Tyler Harms directly at [email protected] to submit a comment to the Natural Resource Commission opposing these changes.  In addition, supporters of our hunting heritage are invited to attend this meeting.  Details may be found here and below.


One change would prohibit hunting deer with handguns equipped with accessories that could potentially allow them to be fired from the shoulder.  Such accessories do not affect muzzle velocity, muzzle energy, or bullet construction: metrics typically considered to determine how effectively and humanely a firearm may harvest game.  In fact, these accessories are often used by hunters in order to stabilize handguns and allow them to shoot more accurately and thereby harvest game more humanely.

Another change would limit firearms to having no more than six rounds of ammunition loaded at a time while hunting.  Regulations already set the number of game animals that can be harvested in bag limits.  This arbitrary limit would not contribute to wildlife conservation or law enforcement efforts.

Again, please click the “Take Action” button below or email Tyler Harms directly at [email protected] to submit a comment to the Natural Resource Commission opposing these changes.  Supporters of our hunting heritage are invited to attend this hearing.  Details may be found here and below.
