REPRESSION CONTINUES TO COLLAPSE

The Quad City Times (Davenport, Iowa)

Firearm instructors eagerly anticipate right-to-carry
legislation giving Iowa sheriffs less discretion in denying
concealed weapons licenses, while at least one local sheriff
is concerned by some of the changes.

The legislation, taking effect Saturday,
loosens the license application process
and moves Iowa from a “may-issue” state to a “shall-issue” state.

“I’m glad it got changed,” Darin Oberhart, owner
of QCI Firearms Training in Bettendorf, said.
“We’re going to have more good guys out there appropriately armed.”

He said Iowa has been one of the hold-out states
for shall-issue concealed carry licenses, adding
that Illinois does not issue such licenses.

Iowa Gov. Chet Culver signed Senate File 2379
into law in April. The law creates uniform standards
in all 99 counties for issuing licenses to carry a
concealed weapon in public. The old law allowed
sheriffs discretion whether to issue or deny licenses.

State National Rifle Association leaders called the
legislation the first time in nearly a century that a
major step had been taken to enhance right-to-carry freedoms.

Concealed carry licenses should not be granted on a subjective basis
using an indiscernible set of criteria
,” said Chris W. Cox, executive director
of National Rifle Association-Institute for Legislative Action.

Scott County Sheriff Dennis Conard said the law
makes the issuing of licenses “much less stringent.”
Those requesting licenses still must undergo course
instruction by a NRA-certified instructor, Conard said.
There is no longer a shooting range requirement
for a license, which is a concern of Clinton County
Sheriff Rick Lincoln.
“I’m concerned new applicants don’t have to
prove proficiency at the firing range before being
issued a license,” Lincoln said. “They only have to
pass a classroom portion.”
Lincoln also is concerned that the law relaxes
alcohol consumption as it relates to carrying a weapon.
“An individual carrying a weapon can go consume
alcohol to the point of intoxication,” he said

Its a good way to begin the New Year.

Government has too much
domestic jurisdiction.

@bleedlikeme,
I don't own a gun. I do have a large dog. I'd have to wake him up first, though lol (he's a very sound sleeper, plus he's hearing-impaired).

I don 't mean this to distress your sensibilities too much; forgive me,
but I knew someone who kept a large dog against burglars.

When he returned to his house from work,
he found that the dog had been murdered
by burglars who also disabled his alarm.

U need the gun to protect the dog.
I suggest a .44 special revolver
loaded with hollowpointed slugs, for better STOPPING POWER.

@OmSigDAVID,
That's a scary story! We were traveling last week when our neighbor called to tell us our alarm tripped in the middle of the night. Twice. We felt bad for her. Her husband went over with the police, but didn't find anything out of the ordinary. The alarm company told us it wasn't a window or door zone, but the motion detector in the kitchen. Eek. Our dog, Jack, was safely boarded in a doggie hotel. We cut our trip short by a day.

Not sure about that gun, though. It's a big step. Does it come in pink?

@Irishk,
Sure. I'm not sure of the advantage of color if it's going to be concealed, but I've heard rumors of colored undies.

@roger,
Now that I think about it, that is a left hand gun. Somehow, I think Taurus is more likely to have reversed the negative than to have set up a production of left hand, pink revolvers.

There is a defensive-minded homosexual group called "The Pink Pistols".

I don 't know of any called "The Pink Revolvers".
I remember a pink revolver in a gun store
in Phoenix, Arizona in either the 1940s
or the early 1950s.
I left it there, untouched.
It may be gone by now.

@OmSigDAVID,
Really? Pink was pretty advanced for the 50's. The good colors are normally anodized aluminum, which is why the Taurus pictured has pink frame, with everything else remaining blued steel. I don't offhand when S&W came out with the Airweight Chief's Special, but it was one of the first.

Is this of any interest?

Maybe a gunsmith will paint it pink.
(Note that this is only a .38, not a .44.)

The mere sight (at nite) of my .44 Taurus Revolver, in Stainless Steel Mirror,
was enuf to scare away some criminals who shot out my driver's side window.

I prefer to avoid light weight guns, with Newton's 3rd Law of Motion in mind.
A heavier gun = lighter recoil.
