Iowa House passes bill changing several gun rules

Posted: Updated:
DES MOINES (AP) -

The House has passed a bill that would make several changes to Iowa's gun laws, including removing the age limit for children to use pistols and revolvers under a parent's supervision.

The House voted 75-24 Tuesday to advance the bill to the Senate, where lawmakers are considering a similar bill.

The bill would make it legal for a child under 14 to use pistols and revolvers under a parent's supervision. It would also block public access to the names of people with permits to carry guns.

The bill would legalize the use of suppressors to help silence guns. It also makes changes to how some people acquire and renew their permits.

It's unclear what kind of support the bill will get in the Democratic-controlled Senate.
