I saw a letter to the editor of the Des Moines Register this morning from an area clergyman stating, in effect,'we told you this would happen when citizens were allowed to carry weapons'.
What was overlooked by the author of the letter was that the suspect in custody is a convicted felon who is prohibited from owning a firearm of any type, let alone being eligible for a permit to carry any sort of weapon. If he'd applied for one, no sheriff would have issued it, or even an Iowa Permit to Acquire Pistols and/or Revolvers. He most likely acquired the handgun unlawfully in the first place, namely in that he did not have the permit to required to purchase or otherwise acquire it.
Ultimately, this has nothing to do with licensing people to carry a firearm, concealed or otherwise. This man was, and is, a criminal doing whatever he pleases regardless of what any statute proscribes.

He didnt have a concealed weapons permit....It happens everywhere...you would be suprised about what you can Find if you look hard enough and have enough money...Guns arent exacttly a rareity and neither is problems....The Gun policy in Iowa has made them easier to aqquire and Mr. MERRETT wouldnt have been applicable due to past convictions...
