Vote Smart's Synopsis:

Vote to pass a bill with an amendment limiting weapons restrictions, including prohibiting cities and counties from enacting bans on carrying firearms.

Highlights:
  • Authorizes use of force, including deadly force, if an individual reasonably believes that a forcible felony is being or will imminently be perpetrated (Sec. 35).

  • Authorizes the use of force when an individual has incorrectly estimated the present danger or the force necessary to repel such danger as long as there is a reasonable basis for such estimation (Sec. 31).

  • Specifies that an individual who is justified in using reasonable force against an aggressor in defense of oneself or another individual is immune from criminal or civil liability for all damages (Sec. 36).

  • Authorizes an individual under the age of 21 to possess a pistol or revolver while under direct supervision (Sec. 23).

  • Defines direct supervision as supervision by a parent, guardian, or spouse who is 21 years of age or older and who maintains a physical presence and visual and verbal contact at all times with the supervised individual (Sec. 23).

  • Requires an applicant for an initial permit to carry weapons to complete a hunter safety course that covers handgun safety training, which may be conducted over the internet (Sec. 9).

  • Prohibits possession of a short-barreled rifle or short-barreled shotgun, resulting in a class “D” felony (Sec. 2).

  • Prohibits an individual from openly carrying a pistol or revolver in the capitol building and on the grounds surrounding the capitol building (Sec. 27).

  • Authorizes a peace officer to carry firearms anywhere in the state, including school grounds and the capitol grounds, if that peace officer has a permit to carry firearms (Secs. 7, 27).

  • Authorizes an individual adversely affected by a measure that regulates the ownership, possession, legal transfer, lawful transportation, registration, or licensing of firearms in a political subdivision, but not the law of the state, to file a civil suit (Sec. 26).
