Backlog in carry classes in Iowa

According to this article at KCRG regarding the carry law going into effect January 1, there is a backlog of 6 to 8 weeks to get a class.

In response to concerns of local sheriffs, a director of one of the companies conducting classes had this to say:
“As long as the person has done the firearm safety course that’s required and can successfully complete the background check, I don’t think it’s really about personal opinion,” [Rob] Shewmake said.

I looked at the story, and saw the headline for this: http://www.kcrg.com/news/local/Clerks-Killed-In-Two-Iowa-Robberies-Suspect-In-Custody-108417344.html

Get your training, get your carry permit, and be prepared! It's too late to think about it when you run into someone who wants to murder you.

A thug by all accounts that has been in trouble with the law and never straightened out.

It appears to be a random shooting that makes no sense.

Just by chance, two store clerks are gone.

I agree, Sam. Be prepared.
