Iowa GOPer Dubs NRA-Backed Legislation ‘Give-A-Handgun-To-A-Schizophrenic Bill’ | Talking Points Memo

Republican Iowa State Rep. Jeff Kaufmann, speaker pro tem of the Iowa State House, was caught joking on a hot mic that a proposal which would allow state residents to carry weapons in public without permission from a sheriff and without any training or a background check might better be called the “give-a-handgun-to-a-schizophrenic-bill.”The Des Moines Register reports that the comment was caught on video during a discussion of House Study bill 219, the so-called “Alaska carry” legislation after a similar law in Alaska.
