Culver to sign gun bill

Governor Chet Culver just told Bob Fisher, news director at KLSS, KRIB in Mason City, that he will sign the gun bill into law.  This is the bill that sets a statewide standard for issuing permits to carry a concealed weapon.  Under current rules, Iowa’s 99 county sheriffs have the discretion to grant those permits.  Here’s the Radio Iowa story, contributed by the aforementioned Mr. Fisher.  The key quote:

“I’m a strong supporter of the Second Amendment,” Culver said. “I think we have to level the playing field to make all of the rules universal in terms of concealed weapon permits in all 99 counties and I want to make sure that if people want a concealed weapon permit and they’re eligible for one that they get one.”
