right to carry in Iowa

This kind of challenge has been needed for a long time in this state. Iowa is technically a right to carry state, but the law is pretty twisted. The state of Iowa basically gives the county sheriff in the county you reside in full power in granting or denying a "non professional" CCW permit. What it amounts to is that you need a very good reason to be able to carry in this state, or be on good terms with your local sheriff. He alone has the say so in whether or not a person is approved. A lot of times it comes down to the good old buddy system... There is no "shall issue" wording in the law here, and the sheriff's word is final.

Trial Set for Suit Challenging Iowa Gun Permit Law | KCRG-TV9 Cedar Rapids, Iowa | Local News

DES MOINES (AP) - A trial date is set for next year for a father and son from Osceola County who filed a federal lawsuit challenging an Iowa law giving local authorities power to decide who gets permits to carry weapons.

The lawsuit was filed last fall by Paul Dorr and his son Alexander Dorr, both of Ocheyedan.

The suit names Osceola County Sheriff Douglas Weber, the sheriff's department and the county. It claims the law used to deny them nonprofessional carry permits is unconstitutional.

According to the lawsuit, Paul Dorr was issued nonprofessional permits to carry a weapon from 2001 to 2006, but his application was denied in 2007.

The Dorrs believe the sheriff's denial was personal.

Trial is scheduled for June 14, 2010.
