    Since the Iowa forum isnt very active, I figured I would post my question here.

    My freind who lives in Iowa, a very restrictive state, wants to open carry in national parks, and he said that the decision lastFebruary wouldnt make any difference because laws in his state would prohibit him from doing so.

    Im not familiar with this part of the law, so I thought it best to ask around over here.

    ask friend to reasearch Iowa code to see if Iowa restricts hun carry in National parks - its an easy task.

    I wasnt sure, (because of the february ruling,) IF Iowa or any other state could regulate this any longer.

    There was no "ruling" - Coburn Amendment simply invalidates Reg. 2.4 for firearm conduct allowed under state and all federal law beyond Reg. 2.4/

    Thats why I asked, thank you. I dont want to give bad info.

    So to be clear, Iowa can still regulate/ prohibit guns in their own, and national parks within the state? Thats how I am reading this at this point.

    Yes, that is how I see it. If your friend goes to other states, the National Parks in those states will fall under those states laws.
