    Last line of the first article:

    So, in Iowa, you need a permit just to OWN a gun? That surprises me...

    Yeah, because that's the case in so many other shall-issue states. Permitted people can't wait for some one to tailgate them or steal their parking space at the mall to justify skinning their smoke wagon. :roll:

    The sheriff can't possibly believe this. Even a cursory glance at anecdotal evidence from neighboring states would completely destroy this ill conceived opinion. This has to be rationalization to justify his anti position.

    Seems the good people of Iowa still have a ways to go. But this law is a good first step.
