Kim Reynolds on Gun Control
Supports "stand your ground" provisions
Gun Control: Support more restrictive gun control legislation? Restrict semi-automatic weapons?
Hubbell: Yes, but not much specificity. Wants public conversation about how gun laws can balance gun rights and public safety. Opposes arming teachers.
Reynolds: No. Supports 2017 sweeping gun rights law as "responsible and reasonable," including "stand your ground" provisions and prohibitions on local restrictions. Decisions on arming teachers should be local.

Concealed carry at statehouse okay
Reynolds says she has no reservations about Iowans carrying guns inside the State Capitol, even after the shooting of a US Congressman. Earlier this year the Iowa legislature approved new gun legislation that
allows Iowans to legally carry handguns into the Capitol if they have a permit to carry. That new law takes effect on July 1st. Reynolds says she doesn't anticipate any problems.
