At approximately 9:30 Thursday morning the Iowa Senate passed House File 2279 by a vote of 46 to 4. HF2279, the Hearing Protection Act, removes suppressors from Iowa’s list of so-called “offensive weapons.” If signed into law this would legalize the civilian ownership of firearm suppressors in the State of Iowa. For years the Iowa Senate has a literal dead end for most every gun bill introduced in the Iowa legislature.
When given an opportunity to speak out against the legalization of suppressors in Iowa not a single Senator chose to do so. In fact the only Senator who said anything was Senator Julian Garrett of Warren County who noted how long overdue this bill is and long we’ve been working to legalize suppressors in Iowa.
