    Security provided at the Iowa State Fair by State Patrol troopers reduces the need for individual fairgoers to carry firearms, Iowa Gov. Terry Branstad said Monday.

    Hmm...IA has a great many troopers to protect every individual fairgoer.

    From a man who has 24 hour armed security. For thee, not for me.

    The answer is right there in the story from Desmoines, at least one of the
    ...significant number of state troopers that are there to protect the safety of citizens.
    ...will be standing near your vehicle while you enjoy the fair. Another trooper, one of the "significant number" will follow you around as well...no charge...as in El Freebo!

    Wonder if it can be arranged that troopers meet me at home to provide escort to the fair and then back home after. I do so want to make the trips safely and enjoy my visit, but that didn't work particularly well for JFK, Bobby Kennedy or Reagan either.
