Longer straight trucks get final OK from Iowa Legislature

Gun rights bill passes Iowa Senate, likely headed to Branstad

The Iowa Senate voted Tuesday to approve legislation making sweeping changes to the state's firearms laws, including a controversial stand-your-ground provision authorizing deadly force.

House File 517, which has already passed the Iowa House, was approved on a 33-17 vote.  Because the bill was amended, it must return to the House. But House Republican leaders are expected to accept the changes, which means it will likely be headed soon to Gov. Terry Branstad, who is expected to sign it.
