Kim Reynolds on Gun Control



It's impossible to understand why school shootings happen

Last week, the unthinkable happened in Iowa when shots were fired in the halls of Perry High School, taking the life of 11-year-old Ahmir Jolliff, and injuring seven others. Our hearts are still heavy and our prayers continue for the victims and their families, and for the entire Perry community. It's impossible to understand why things like this happen. The senselessness of it shakes us to our very core.

Supports "stand your ground" provisions

Gun Control: Support more restrictive gun control legislation? Restrict semi-automatic weapons?

Hubbell: Yes, but not much specificity. Wants public conversation about how gun laws can balance gun rights and public safety. Opposes arming teachers.

Reynolds: No. Supports 2017 sweeping gun rights law as "responsible and reasonable," including "stand your ground" provisions and prohibitions on local restrictions. Decisions on arming teachers should be local.

Concealed carry at statehouse okay

Reynolds says she has no reservations about Iowans carrying guns inside the State Capitol, even after the shooting of a US Congressman. Earlier this year the Iowa legislature approved new gun legislation that allows Iowans to legally carry handguns into the Capitol if they have a permit to carry. That new law takes effect on July 1st. Reynolds says she doesn't anticipate any problems.
