Anyone know how one establishes "residency" in Iowa?

over and over, and it does not work.
what is that saying, about trying the same things over and over and expecting a different result?

City Folk amuse us with their "gun control" antics.
True story: Last time I was pulled over by the local cop (singular, we have *one*, only!) she asked me if I was carrying. I told her I was. Her replay was precious: "Good. I always like to know who my back-up is".

That said, I am also a supporter of most, if not all, of the executive orders that President Obama signed. He did not use them to make law. He used them in a manner appropriate with provisions for them in the Constitution.
I feel that the executive orders make sense and are the kind of "common sense gun control" that most gun owners have desired to see for a long time.
They are policy directives that have been sorely needed. They are focused on studying, controlling, and preventing violence without restricting law abiding gun owner's rights.
I am interested to see how they work.
I support gun laws that effectively address problems without interfering with law abiding citizens. Laws like the current requirement for background checks. Laws (where in effect) that suggest or mandate secure storage of firearms. Laws that don't allow weapons in courthouses.
When many gun owners say that they are against gun control they don't mean no laws, just good laws.

I'm not sure that being required to support a regimes foriegn policy is a good thing....however!!, I think in THIS country, with a second amendment, requires mandatory training. A required course on gun safety, may be all that's needed, to bring everyone on the same page. I hate the concept of a "Draft", but I think we would be well served to have knowledge of firearms.
