    IA's new carry laws

    I may be going to IA from time to time. In the coming year, where is carrying legal and where it is not?
    No free man shall ever be debarred the use of arms. Thomas Jefferson (1776)

    I ask sir, what is the militia? It is the whole people except for a few politicians. - George Mason (father of the Bill of Rights and The Virginia Declaration of Rights)

    In Iowa, you need a permit to carry weapons, be they knives, firearms, tasers, you need a permit. A non resident of Iowa can have a permit issued by any state and Iowa will recognize is as of 1-1-11. You cannot carry: on school grounds, in/on the capitol complex, in casinos, in/on the fairgrounds(this is an administrative rule not law and if you have a permit will only result in trespassing). Permits are considered invalid if you become intoxicated (being under the influence of a controlled substance of having a BAC greater than .08) Do I even need to mention the federal laws? It's pretty simple here in Iowa.

    Seems to be fairly similar to WI laws then. Can you carry in the wayside buildings?

    I assume you mean the rest stops on the sides of the highways/interstates. As far as I understand it, carry is not prohibited at rest stops in Iowa.

    Yes, that is what I meant. Thanks.

    There is an extensive and detailed discussion of this topic in the forums at the Iowa Firearms Coalition website (www.IowaFC.org). Iowa has very few restrictions on permitted carry.
