Constitutional carry is dead? Not so fast.

Jim over at Travis McGee Reader pointed out that Rep. Tom Sands of Wapello (my old stomping grounds), revived the "Constitutional Carry" bill at the statehouse. The Des Moines Register article, Republicans revive gun bill to make Iowa’s permit-to-carry system optional, noted that since the permit process requires a fee (essentially a tax) then it is not subject to the legislative funnel. HSB 219 (Correction for previous wrong bill number)

It's about time someone other than liberal democrats use the system to their advantage.

Of course the sheriffs are against it and the hoplophobes came out in force to post their snide, humorless comments.

Well played, Tom.
