Why is this recent legislation such a victory for Iowa gun owners? As we've pointed out in NRA Family before, suppressors help reduce hearing damage due to firearm-generated noise...and they also reduce recoil, which makes shooting much more fun. "After three years of hard work alongside the Iowa Firearms Coalition and the National Rifle Association," said Knox Williams, President and Executive Director of the ASA, "Iowans will finally be able to use suppressors to protect their hearing while enjoying the shooting sports." Continued Williams, "This rally is an opportunity for us to show the people of Iowa why we have all fought so hard to legalize suppressors in The Hawkeye State. Hearing is believing, which is why we want you to join us as we celebrate the new law and recognize those who helped this legislation become reality."
"Iowans can now enjoy the same freedom as those in many other states and countries," said Brownells CEO Pete Brownell. "I suffer from hearing loss myself. Being able to dampen the noise associated with firearms will help protect the hearing of all Iowans who shoot, including future generations of Iowa gun owners. We hope anyone wanting to learn more about suppressors can make it to the rally."
Representatives from the Iowa Firearms Coalition, National Rifle Association and American Suppressor Association will be on hand at the rally.
Big Springs Shooting Complex is located at 4945 Highway 146, just east of Searsboro, Iowa.
