Under current Iowa law parents with a valid Permit to Carry who carry while picking up or dropping off their children at Iowa schools are committing a Class D felony.
SSB1017 would decriminalize the act of carrying while taking your son or your daughter to school. Please contact the members of the Senate’s Judiciary Committee and urge them to pass SSB1017 as soon as possible.
Make sure these elected officials understand that:
Iowa’s Permit to Carry holders are peaceful, lawful citizens who’ve passed background checks and want nothing more than to be able to protect their most valuable assets — our children! There’s no reason we should risk felony charges for protecting our families!
