    Des Moines Register - Pleasant Hill City Council says no to gun ban

    http://www.desmoinesregister.com/art...un-ban?RAGBRAI

    SNIP

    The Pleasant Hill City Council tabled a resolution banning firearms from city property at the council meeting Jan. 25.

    The proposed resolution stated that city buildings such as the library, city hall and buildings in Doanes Park should have notifications posted in entryways restricting firearms. If an individual were to not obey the posted restriction, law enforcement officers would be called and the individual would be charged with trespassing.

    . . .

    Scott Jones of Reasnor addressed the board during public input.

    “The resolution will carry no weight with the law,” he said. “Just saying you can’t do something, criminals won’t follow that anyway.”

    Iowa Code 724.28 is Clear in that Pleasant Hill has NO Authority to Regulate Firearms beyond what is Permissable under Iowa Law.

    Any Pleasant Hill Regulations that are Inconsistent with, or otherwise more Stringent than, State Law on this Subject-matter are Null and Void.

    You were right when you said void

    724.28 Prohibition of regulation by political subdivisions.
    A political subdivision of the state shall not enact an ordinance regulating the ownership,
    possession, legal transfer, lawful transportation, registration, or licensing of firearms when the
    ownership, possession, transfer, or transportation is otherwise lawful under the laws of this state.
    An ordinance regulating firearms in violation of this section existing on or after April 5, 1990, is
    void.
