Iowans should consistently ask permission

The guest column from Iowa Sportsmen's Federation, Craig Swartz, adds his thoughts for more testing, more fees, background checks...
If one has demonstrated competence and safety with firearms, knowledge of the laws, and has no criminal or mental illness history, every applicant should receive a permit.

Only those people who are willing to accept this solemn responsibility will put themselves through the process and expense to obtain a permit.
Although I would agree with this:
Conversely, to lay out the expense, time and to complete all aspects of the course work in every detail, yet be denied a permit merely upon the arbitrary whim of an elected official, is, and has always been, ludicrous at best.
but I don't think for the same reasons.
