Iowa State Senator Rick Bertrand, R-Sioux City, is starting off the 2015 Iowa legislative session with his usual goal in mind: to pass legislation that would help boost the economy.

But this year, he's sponsoring one bill that is a bit unusual for him.

And one that, while he says is "moderate," could stir up a debate in Iowa.

And the reason behind this moderate bill is because of a case in West Des Moines.

The 2015 legislative bills co-authored by District 38 Representative Heath VanNatter and District 69 Representative Jim Lucas will not be heard this legislative session, but have garnered attention from across the United States.

The three bills presented aim to limit the restrictions placed on gun owners in Indiana, which already has some of the more lenient and undefined laws in the nation.

“We’ve been talking about these bills for a few years, and Rep. Lucas and I decided to pull the trigger and do it,” explained Rep. Heath VanNatter. “I’ve had a lot of contact with people who have wanted a constitutional carry law, which means you can carry a gun without a license.”

Advocates Duel Over Who’s Winning Gun Control Battle in the States

After being thwarted in Congress following the 2012 school shooting rampage in Newtown, Conn., gun control activists have scored some important victories in states around the country.

One of the biggest wins came in Washington State. In November, voters by a wide margin approved a state ballot measure extending, to gun shows and other private firearms transactions, a requirement for buyer background checks.

But which side has the momentum in the struggle around the nation pitting advocates of tighter controls against supporters of expanded gun rights? That remains a tough call.

Some big names in Southern Nevada are supporting an initiative aimed at closing what they call a loophole in state regulations governing firearms purchases.

Wynn Resorts cofounder Elaine Wynn, former Clark County Sheriff Bill Young and former Las Vegas Mayor Jan Jones Blackhurst have been named as board members of Nevadans for Background Checks. The advisory board is pushing an initiative that could appear on the 2016 ballot.

Under Nevada law, a background check is required for guns purchased from licensed dealers but not purchases from private sellers or those made at gun shows.

Stand-up comedian Bill Engvall was supposed to be the solution to the National Shooting Sports Foundation’s problem of finding someone to perform Tuesday night at its massive annual trade show. Engvall seemed safely pro-gun. He even does a bit about going deer hunting with his wife.

But Engvall instead became a prime example of just how contentious and rigid the gun debate has become.

A Lithia man has been charged after he tackled another man Tuesday who had a handgun in a holster -- and a permit to carry -- at a Wal-Mart.

About 11:58 a.m., deputies responded to the store at 11110 Causeway Blvd. where Clarence Daniels had been taken to the ground by Michael Foster, according to the Hillsborough County Sheriff's Office.

Foster had seen Daniels getting out of his vehicle in the lot with handgun, under his coat and in a holster. Foster followed him into the store and then attacked the Daniels, the sheriff's office said.

In the wake of a November shooting at Florida State University, a bill that would allow guns on college campuses in Florida cleared its first legislative committee Tuesday.

The House Criminal Justice subcommittee approved the bill (HB 4005) by an 8-4 party-line vote. It would repeal the current prohibition on concealed-weapon license holders from bringing a firearm onto the grounds of a public college or university.

A school superintendent, highway patrol lieutenant, union official and North Dakota Supreme Court justice were among those who voiced concerns Tuesday about a bill that would allow elected officials to carry concealed weapons in the state Capitol and other public buildings.

Lt. Tom Iverson of the North Dakota Highway Patrol said a gunman in the House or Senate chambers would create “mass chaos,” and the patrol is concerned that having multiple people drawing weapons would make it hard for officers to identify the real threat.

Enter Sheriff Thomas Lorey. Lorey has been a lawman in the county in one form or other for nearly 45 years. Before becoming a police officer he was a Navy man. Somewhere in-between he became an “Oath Keeper.” Oath Keepers are former military and law enforcement/first responders who still pledge to, “Defend the Constitution against all enemies, foreign and domestic.”

Lorey is intending to uphold his oath against those Second Amendment hating politicians in the state capitol.

An influential Democratic state senator says he’s unlikely to support a bill requiring background checks on gun purchases because the checks are unnecessary and unconstitutional in Vermont.

“I need to be convinced that Vermont needs a background check. I doubt it’s necessary,” state Sen. Dick Sears, D-Bennington, told Vermont Watchdog.

A federal appeals court has set oral arguments over the constitutionality of a Maryland law banning 45 assault weapons and gun magazines that hold more than 10 rounds.

The 4th U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals in Richmond, Virginia, scheduled arguments in the matter for March 24.

In court papers filed Friday, gun-rights advocates say the law violates the Second Amendment and that a federal judge in Baltimore erred when she upheld the law last summer.

DOWN THE street or across the country, a valid driver’s license is all you need to lawfully get behind the wheel of a car. If you’ve met your state’s conditions to be issued a license — passed the test, submitted your fingerprints, paid the fee — there’s not a state in the country that won’t honor it.

A valid license to carry a firearm should be treated the same way.

In many respects, Americans who esteem the Second Amendment have reason to be upbeat these days. In opinion polls, a majority of respondents says protecting gun ownership is more important than enacting stronger gun control.

The Republican-controlled N.H. House of Representatives voted on Jan. 7 to allow guns on the floor and in the visitors' gallery of the House. This misguided vote was not a continuation of a long-standing policy. According to Rep. Steve Shurtleff, "Deadly weapons were first prohibited in the House back in 1971 after a fellow lawmaker threatened (to shoot) House Speaker Marshall Cobleigh. Aside from the two-year period that (Republican) Speaker Bill O'Brien wielded the gavel, the policy (not to allow guns in the House) has remained in place since."

Proclaiming the dawn of "a new day in Texas," Lt. Gov. Dan Patrick was inaugurated on Tuesday stressing themes of conservative values and the need to get to work on the people's business.

In a speech interrupted repeatedly by applause, the 64-year-old senator and Houston talk-show host pledged to fulfill campaign promises to reform public education by allowing school choice for parents, to curb skyrocketing college tuition costs, to fund infrastructure improvements by stopping the diversion of revenues from the gas on fuel, to lower property and business taxes and to secure Texas' border with Mexico.

He also said he will stand strong in support of the right to bear arms.
 

 QUOTES TO REMEMBER
Without freedom there will be no firearms among the people; without firearms among the people there will not long be freedom. Certainly there are examples of countries where the people remain relatively free after the people have been disarmed, but there are no examples of a totalitarian state being created or existing where the people have personal arms. — Neal Knox
