Linn County Supervisors have doubts about Iowa gun bill

CEDAR RAPIDS, Iowa (KCRG-TV9) - Linn County Supervisors also have doubts about a gun bill also that lawmakers passed last week.

Supervisors met Monday where they discussed this and many other topics.

Part of the gun bill measure might interfere with the security rules that currently keep guns and any weapons out of the courthouse.

"Currently we have sheriff's deputies that screen people as they come in and there was confusion about whether we would be allowed to do that anymore," said Supervisor Brett Oleson.

The sheriff told supervisors local rules could still prohibit guns or any weapons inside the courthouse. But under the House-passed bill, gun owners with carry permits could sue the county.
