SF 2379 was enacted in 2010 and took effect January 1, 2011. The bill made significant changes to Iowa Code Ch. 724 regarding weapons permits. Given that the Nonprofessional Permit to Carry Weapons is valid for five years, many permit holders issued a permit in 2011 are now seeking information about renewals. Frequently asked questions about renewal of the permit to carry weapons, as well as other common questions, is available in a new FAQ. Frequently asked questions regarding SF2379 may be viewed here.
