Iowa Constitutional Amendment Affirming 2nd Amendment Survives Funnel

This week is the first funnel week for the 2018 Iowa Legislative session. Non-appropriations bills must pass through a committee by the end of the week to continue to be considered. HJR 13, a “right to keep and bear arms” amendment that would amend the Iowa Constitution to add language affirming the 2nd Amendment to the U.S. Constitution, passed in the Iowa House Judiciary Committee on Tuesday.

The text that would be added to Article I (Iowa’s Bill of Rights) of the Iowa Constitution should the Amendment be adopted would read:

Right to acquire, keep, possess, transport, carry, transfer, and use arms. SEC. 1A. The right of the people to keep and bear arms shall not be infringed. The sovereign state of Iowa affirms and recognizes the fundamental right of the people to acquire, keep, possess, transport, carry, transfer, and use arms for all legitimate purposes. Any and all restrictions of this right shall be subject to strict scrutiny.
