The Iowa Legislature has voted this session to legalize firearm suppressors, as well as let landowners carry loaded guns when they drive ATVs and snowmobiles on their property. But both bills were scaled back to win passage. A fundraising email from the Iowa Gun Owners group accuses the “naive…establishment gun lobby” of getting hoodwinked by the “gun grabbers” in the legislature. Representative Matt Windschitl of Missouri Valley — a trained gunsmith — says he wants to set the record straight.
Windschitl praises the Iowa Firearms Coalition and the National Rife Association for their work on the bills.
Windschitl works in his family’s gun store in Missouri Valley. Iowa Gun Owners touts itself as the only “no compromise” gun group in Iowa and it vows to defeat “anti-gun” legislators this fall.
