GUN SAFETY: Lawmakers Loosen Hunting Laws


Lawmakers came to an agreement on new laws for Iowa hunters on Tuesday.

Both the House and Senate overwhelmingly approved a measure to do away with gun handling classes for adults.

Hunters born after 1972 are currently required to take a 10-hour course on hunting safety and pass a written test before getting a hunting license.

The new measure does away with the gun-handling class for anyone over 18 years old, but adds an adult online course in it’s place.

The bill must be signed by Governor Branstad before it becomes law.
