People could buy firearms and carry a concealed handgun without first obtaining a state permit in the state under a bill the Iowa Senate approved and sent to Gov. Reynolds

Davenport, IA – According to the statement, the bill was approved with only Republican support.

Last week it cleared the House with the backing of only one Democrat.

According to the officials, the bill would eliminate current state permit requirements and the accompanying background checks that ensure the person obtaining or carrying a gun isn’t disqualified from ownership due to past felonies or abuses.

The bill now goes to Gov. Kim Reynolds.
