DES MOINES, Ia. (KMTV) - A bill that relaxes restrictions on gun permits and background checks is now in the hands of Iowa Governor Kim Reynolds.
The Iowa Senate passed the bill 31-to-17 on Monday.
If signed, it would eliminate the requirement to get a state permit before buying a gun.
It would also get rid of required federal background checks for person-to-person gun sales.
A federal background check would still be required by licensed dealers.
