Some sheriffs don't like the idea that these citizens are able to get a permit.
Scott County Sheriff Dennis Conard says short of a felony, Iowa's new gun law allows nearly anyone with a misdemeanor record to get a gun permit.I guess we can add the Scott County sheriff to the group with Linn and Johnson County sheriffs, who don't like the loss of power over the permit process.
"Most of the sheriffs in Iowa were not fans of the new law," said Conard.
And he's repeating the 20% line.
I doubt that if he doesn't appreciate the income generated to the county:
The cost of the new gun permits are more expensive than in the past. The new permits have generated $150,000 in revenue. $120,000 of that stays in Scott County.
