Iowa: House Passes Permitless Carry & Frivolous Lawsuit Prevention

Last night, the House voted 60-37 to pass House File 621, to protect Second Amendment rights from frivolous lawsuits, and also voted 60-37 to pass House File 756, for permitless carry and other pro-gun measures. They will now go to the Senate for further consideration. Please contact your state senator and ask them to SUPPORT HF 621 and HF 756.

House File 621 protects firearm dealers, manufacturers, distributors, etc., from frivolous lawsuits for the criminal or unlawful use of their product. While federal law currently has this protection, as the Protection of Lawful Commerce in Arms Act (PLCAA), President Biden has promised to repeal it as a main part of his assault on the Second Amendment. Prior to Congress passing PLCAA in 2005, 34 states passed similar laws on their own. With this bill, Iowa will add 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.

House File 756, previously House Study Bill 254, allows a law-abiding adult to carry a concealed firearm, without first needing to obtain government permission. This ensures that citizens have their right to self-defense without government red tape or delays. In addition, it adds the option for law-abiding citizens to pass a federal background check to acquire a handgun without obtaining a Permit to Acquire, ensures that public housing cannot deny Second Amendment rights to tenants, ensures that local governments cannot restrict lawful carrying of firearms, expands the types of training accepted for a Permit to Carry Weapons, and other Second Amendment provisions.

Again, please contact your state senator and ask them to SUPPORT HF 621 and HF 756.
