    New Iowa open carry law

    The video talks about Kalifornia marijuana law first so let that roll thru.

    Wow! Lots of misinformation there.

    It's a shame the media doesn't do any research to see if what there going to say is actually true.

    It's quite possibly they simple don't know how. That's why they're reporters, not scientists.

    Kudos to Iowa for having the good sense God gave a goose to endorse open carry.

    Open carry in Iowa was already legal. The new law doesn't change anything with regards to open carry. It takes away a sheriff's discretion in deciding who to issue permits to and what restrictions to put on the permits.

    Yep, the new law does several things, but OC wasn't one of them. You also notice that the information bar on the screen while he is talking says "Iowa will let people carry guns visibly with no permit"

    Hopefully people don't see that and think they can go OC whenever and wherever they want without a permit.

    A couple of things that did change with the new law are:
    IA permit is now valid for 5 years instead of 1
    IA accepts all other state's permits

    OT Darkshadow62988: I have seen your post on the IA board. I'm not sure if you would be interested, but a few of us are getting together on the Jan 15th at Shooting Sports in Moline, IL for some target practice, then some lunch at Culvers off 53rd.

    FoxNews just did a "new laws for 2011" report. They also erroneously reported that Iowa just instituted open carry. I sent them an email. We'll see if they correct the report before the program is over in another hour.
