Thank you for your emails,
phone calls and letters regarding a Dove Season in
You should be advised that the “Anti-Dove” people are organizing strongly against the proposed Senate File No. 83 and will be out in numbers trying to discourage the Legislature voting for this dove bill.
As you all know, the Right to Carry, has been amended and signed by the Governor and is presently apart of the Iowa Law regarding Sheriff’s no longer can deny a permit to carry at their discretion, only way it can be denied is for specific reasons which includes: a felony charge, drug / alcohol addictions, domestic violence convictions, being subject to a restraining order, a past commitment to a mental institution, unlawful immigration status and dishonorable discharge from the military. These are the only reasons why a Sheriff would be unable to issue a permit. Of course if they deny a permit, it could be appealed to the Administrative Court Judge. In the past, it had to go to a District Court Judge.
We have to thank the NRA and it’s members for allowing and pushing the Legislature to make this amendment. It being remembered that the Iowa Carry Permit allows for open or concealed carrying of hand guns, rifles, and/or shot guns. This new permit to carry will affect the DNR as far as law enforcement goes, which hasn’t been clarified to this point yet.
