    OT:Iowa Supressors...

    I heard through the grapevine that that was legislation in the works making supressors legal for purchase. Ive done a search and cant come up with anything. Anyone know any details?

    There 1 one thing preventing the bill from passing -- only ONE thing. It's name is Rob Hogg, and it chairs the Senate judiciary committee, and it hates freedom and firearms. It is appointed by the Democrat Senate Majority Leader Gronstol, supported by a whole bunch of other Democrats in the Senate, and they hide behind him so that they won't have to vote on the issue because Hogg won't let it be voted on. There is so much stupid hi-jinx going on there is is nauseating.

    There are 2 ways Hogg's 100% road-block power can be bypassed:
    1) remove Hogg from office (but he may be replaced by another equally bad Democrat)
    2) remove the Democrat majority in the senate, so that Gronstol will not be the majority leader, so that a non-Democrat will be appointed to the Judiciary chair.


    If you want the full play-by-play recap, see here (prepare for blood-pressure increase): http://www.ar15.com/forums/t_8_42/55...coreboard.html
    It gets good (bad) around page 22 or so when the bill bounces back and forth literally ALL NIGHT with Hogg's committee continually refusing to pass the silencer language.
