Branstad says don't expect big changes to Iowa gun laws

DES MOINES (KWWL) -

 

Governor Branstad says don't expect any big changes to Iowa's gun laws.
He spoke about it Friday on Iowa Public Television's "Iowa Press."

"I also think that the issues of violence in schools can best be addressed by things like the Bullying Prevention Summit we had, and reform that we're doing on the mental health system, trying to identify and help people with mental problems. I also am very careful when it comes to restoring rights to convicted felons... make sure that we don't have dangerous people getting possession of weapons," Branstad said.

 

Branstad stressed his support of the 2nd Amendment, but said he's more focused on things to rebuild the Iowa economy.
