What if everybody had a gun?

The Iowa Legislature is working on many interesting bills.

For instance, there is Senate File 25 — a “stand your ground” bill.

There is Senate Joint Resolution 2, which allows people to carry guns without permits.

There is Senate File 108, which calls for eliminating federal prohibitions on machine guns and sawed-off shotguns.

And there is Senate File 145, which wants to eliminate requirements for annual permits; it also calls for allowing permits from other states to be valid in Iowa. That includes the states, which have limited, if any, background checks.

What if these bills become laws? With lots of people running around with different guns, it would be impossible to distinguish good people with guns from bad people with guns. The results could be drastic.
