    Constitutional carry dead in Iowa

    I lack the mental bandwidth to find the link at this late hour but I did see on the Des Moines Register website that the constitutional carry bills in the Iowa House did not survive the final passage date to be handed off to the Senate. I can only hope we have better luck next year.

    Iowa Constitution
    Article 1 Bill of Rights
    Section 1 Rights of persons
    Section 2 Political Power
    Section 25 Rights Reserved
    Because the Right to bear arms pre-dates the Constitution
    it is one of the Rights retained by the people.
    And with the incorporation of the 2A, you have the Right to carry.
    Where does it say the people have to ask permission to exercise a right.
    Git together with like minded people and do it.
    Force Government to honor your Rights.
    Life is tough, its tougher when your stupid.

    I don't mean to be rude but I have to say this, that is exactly what the bills were doing. We tried for a few years now and each year it seems the bills get one step closer to passing. We failed (again) this year to get the bills passed and next year we will try again.

    Perhaps you had a different method in mind to "force" the government to honor our rights. Please enlighten me since I am growing impatient at the pace in which legislative measures are progressing.

    Not sure Constitutional Carry is dead yet. Here are two articles from today, 3/9/2011:

    There's still hope, though it's unlikely. Politics is a strategy game, and things get added and ammended all the time at the last minute. It's the same situation with the enhanced preemption with penalties bill.
