Note: Some Cities and Counties are passing ordinances stating their property is off limits. They will post signs. The Iowa Attorney General in Opinion No. 03-4-1 stated:
….narrowly and find that the statute does not interfere with the authority of a city to exercise its home rule
power to place restrictions upon the possession of weapons which apply only to buildings owned or directly
controlled by the city….
If City/County Property is posted you can be arrested and be the test case. RKBA groups are working
to get proper legislation to void this AG Opinion. Until then I would not carry on any City/County
Property that is posted.
