Bill/Issue: IA SF 13 - Punishes Carrying Weapons on Marked Properties

  • Position: Opposed
  • Author: Sen. Bolkcom (D-43)

SF 13 would allow any property owners or places of business to prohibit firearms from being carried on their property and could punish violators with 30 days in jail and a $625 fine. This bill would allow for the discrimination against firearms carriers and cause the exclusion of people expressing their Second Amendment rights from places generally open to the public. SF 13 stands to marginalize the gun community and use law enforcement to disarm law-abiding gun owners in many public places.

UPDATE: IA SF 13 failed in Senate!
