Municipalities consider gun bans in response to new law

Posted:

DES MOINES (KWWL) -- A new state law allowing more Iowans to carry guns is now leading to debates over gun bans in courthouses, city halls, and other public areas. 

Waterloo passed a city ban last week and proposals are being floated in Dubuque, Johnson, and Washington counties as well. 

The gun law took effect Jan. 1 limiting the discretion local sheriffs previously had in denying permits.
