    Does Iowa have state level preemption?

    Does the Chief Judge think the judicial branch can set its own gun control policy as part of the "inherent power of courts" (an implied constitutional power) without any regard to the legislatur's statutory law?

    Is the judiciary a "political subdivision of the state"?
