One of the most hot button issues in modern day politics came to a head in Iowa today. Governor Kim Reynolds set a firm precedent on the Hawkeye State's position on gun control. Friday afternoon the Governor signed a bill into law, making it legal for Iowans to carry pistols and revolvers without a permit. In addition, it eliminates background checks for private person to person sales.
On Monday, flags will be flown at half staff to honor the individuals who were killed in the deadly attack at Anamosa State Penitentiary. Two staff members died at the hands of inmates at the facility.
