Iowa: Legislature to Reconvene, Range Protection & Preemption Bill Still In Senate

Gun Rights

On June 3rd, the Iowa Legislature is scheduled to reconvene. Before the COVID-19 crisis forced the suspension of the 2020 legislative session, the House passed important legislation to protect shooting ranges from being shut down by unreasonable local ordinances and ensure that Second Amendment rights remain protected across the state. This bill, House File 2502, is still awaiting action on the Senate floor. Please contact your state senator and ask them to resume work promoting Second Amendment rights by supporting HF 2502.

House File 2502, previously House Study Bill 615, protects shooting ranges from onerous or burdensome zoning regulations. Law-abiding citizens utilize shooting ranges to practice marksmanship skills, to ensure that their self-defense and sporting arms are in order, for recreation, and to teach the responsible use of and respect for firearms to others. This critical legislation will protect shooting ranges and the Second Amendment for present and future generations.

In addition, HF 2502 also strengthens Iowa’s firearm preemption law by affirming that modifications, firearm attachments, and other weapons are also protected. Preemption legislation is designed to stop municipalities from creating a patchwork of different laws throughout the state that may potentially turn a law-abiding citizen into a criminal for simply crossing a jurisdictional line. It also ensures that Second Amendment rights are equally protected for all Iowans, regardless of where they reside.
