IA: Seeking gun rights back, Iowa farmer gets arrested instead

Retired farmer Allan Phillips had been out of legal trouble for 40 years when he asked Iowa's governor to restore the gun rights he lost in 1978.

Phillips, 76, wrote in his 2017 application for clemency that it was time for him to get past the consequence of his misdemeanor conviction for having a loaded hunting gun in his vehicle. But his request would ultimately land him in legal jeopardy.

As his application slowly moved forward, Phillips received a surprise visit earlier this year from state investigators conducting a background check. They found that he had access to firearms at his home in West Branch in violation of the gun ban that his 41-year-old conviction had triggered.

It's hard to believe that law enforcement didn't have better things to do than harass a farmer that never should have lost his gun rights in the first place.

Living on a small rural property it is also hard to imagine not having any guns to deal with varmints.
