A group that includes gun rights advocates in Iowa are calling on the governor to sign a bill that includes new restrictions on firearms possession by people convicted of misdemeanors.

The new gun law — wh더킹카지노ich critics say will unfairly target criminals and keep them off the streets — is one of dozens of legislative gun bills considered by Democratic legislators that could see their passage through the Republican-controlled legislature.

Iowa State Rep. Ron Brinkley (R) introduced a bill to add background checks for all gun purchases from private sellers, including online, to state law and to require firearm owners to obtain a permit after a background check. The bill is the subject of a public hearing Tuesday before Iowa Gov. Terry Branstad (R).

However, Rep. Dan Brimmer (R-Gulliver, one of the bill’s sponsors) told HuffPost that the legislation that would require background checks for gun purchases from private sellers would only apply to a limited, narrow range of domestic violence misdemeanors.

His co-sponsor, state Rep. Jon Brunsma (R), said he believes there’s no connection between those two terms and a connection between gun violence and domestic violence.

“This legislation is not a blanket attempt to expand background checks from online to private sellers. It’s not the same thing. It’s not a blanket gun control legislation. It’s not the same thing for everybody,” Brimmer said.

While Brimmer and Brunsma have been outspoken in their support for the gun bill, those backing a different bill have been less vocal, citing concerns that it could target people with mental illnesses with severe emotional breakdowns.

The bill’s co-sponsors include the Democratic Party of jarvees.comIowa; the Iowa Democratic Party; the National Rifle Association; and the Iowa Association of Gun Owners.

The Iowa Family Action Council and the National Federation of Independent Business are not endorsing the legislation, according to the group’s president.

The bill’s co-sponsor, former U.S. Rep. Dan Burton (R), is the only U.S. Republican lawmaker to sign on to an earlier version of the bill fro
