I believe gun laws should only be for banned weapons (AK's, etc.) We, the people, should be able to keep a firearm around our homes to
protect ourselves & families. It is only the people who illegally use guns that are in the wrong! A law-abiding citizen is NOT going to go around shooting people "just for the heck of it" or "robbing" stores, etc. GUNS don't kill: "PEOPLE KILL"!

What do you expect? Ottumwa is just a low class version of the "People's Republic of Iowa City"

So what are they afraid of in Ottumwa? There might be a law abiding person that can defend themselves against a thug?

ps... Ak's and verious other "scary" guns are not different than anything else. They are just semi automatic and you get one round when you pull the trigger once. Don't let the media make you think they are all fully automatic weapons like you see on movies.

Guns are for protection from people who want to harm you and protection from the goverment if they ever go to far...O and for hunting delicious animals.

The AK 47 is not banned in Iowa. as long as it is not full automatic and a 30 round capacity limit it is just a rifle. I use to own a AK 47 they are great for home defense and are very durable dependable weapons. With police killing people all a across the country like rabid dogs these days I carry conceal thanks to my permit. It only cost 60 dollars to get a carry conceal permit after taking a 30 dollar course . Keep in mind guns dont kill people people do. Responsible gun owners are a necessity , it keeps the Police State limited.
