House File 59 - Preemption Clarification
HF59 amends IA Code 724.28 which says local municipalities and governing bodies shall not preempt or supersede state firearms law. Iowa has had a preemption law for almost 25 years, but every year many local municipalities continue to try to work around this law and illegally in fringe on Iowan's rights. This bill would strengthen the current code and provide citizen's rights greater protections from over zealous governing bodies.
House File 92 - Stand Your Ground
This legislation would remove a person's "duty to retreat" from an attacker in any location. This would allow law-abiding citizens to protect themselves or their family anywhere they are lawfully present. This legislation would also expressly enhance the protections against criminal prosecution and civil lawsuits when justifiable force is used.
House File 99 - Repeal the Youth Shooting Ban
Currently anyone under the age of 14 is strictly prohibited from holding or shooting a handgun in Iowa - regardless of whether or not that minor is under parental supervision. HF99 would amend the state code to allow a person under 14 to lawfully shoot a handgun, with proper supervision, as long as their parent, guardian, or spouse who is 21 years of age or older has provided consent.
