Iowa permit to carry weapon applicants

CENTERVILLE — Gary D. Anderson, Appanoose County sheriff, said effective Jan. 1 Iowa Code 724 as amended by Senate File 2379 will become effective. As this new law approaches you should be aware of some very important information concerning the new law.

1. All renewal applications must be filed at least 30 days prior to the expiration of the current permit. Example: If your permit expires Jan. 2, 2011 you must file your renewal application no later than Dec. 2, 2010.

2. All renewal applicants must provide proof that they have completed the required training within the 12 months prior to the expiration of a currently held permit. Please note that since renewal applications must be filed at least 30 days prior to the expiration of the current permit, the effective training period is no greater than 11 months.

3. Training for a renewal application can be:

• Completion of any NRA handgun safety training course.

• Completion of any handgun safety training course available to the general public offered by a law enforcement agency, community college, college, private or public institution or organization, or firearms training school, utilizing instructors certified by the National Rifle Association or certain other firearms training certifying bodies (such as the Iowa Law Enforcement Academy).

• Completion of any handgun safety training course offered for security guards, investigators, special deputies, or any division or subdivision of a law enforcement or security enforcement agency approved by the Iowa Department of Public Safety.

• Completion of small arms training while serving with the armed forces of the United States as evidenced by any of the following:

• For personnel released or retired from active duty, possession of an honorable discharge or general discharge under honorable conditions. Form DD-214.

• For personnel on active duty or serving in one of the national guard or reserve components of the armed forces of the United States, possession of a certificate of completion of basic training with a service record of successful completion of small arms training and qualification.

• Completion of a law enforcement agency firearms training course that qualifies a peace officer to carry a firearm in the normal course of the peace officer’s duties.

• Qualifying on a firing range under the supervision of an instructor certified by the National Rifle Association or certain other firearms training certifying bodies.

4. Failure to file your renewal application at least 30 days prior to the expiration of your current permit will cause your application to be considered a new application. You will have to pay the $50 new application fee. Documented training for a new application that occurred any time in the past will be accepted for a NEW application.

5. New permits cost $50 and are valid for five years (unless revoked).

6. Renewal permits cost $25 and are valid for five years (unless revoked).

If you do not meet the requirements under the new law, you do have the ability to renew your permit until Dec. 31, 2010 under the current law and current requirements. Your permit will be valid for one year and you will only be required to pay the current renewal fee.
