As part of Republicans of Black Hawk County’s Topics and Tidbits Series, we are sponsoring a town hall event on Red Flag laws. Red Flag laws and universal background checks are currently on the minds of everyone, including the president, congress and the media. What is the Black Hawk County communities’ thoughts about these issues? We have asked a number of individuals to be panelists, to give their viewpoint on the advantages and disadvantages a Red Flag law in Iowa would raise, and to answer the public’s questions. Panelist will include Black Hawk County Sheriff Tony Thompson, Rob Boots, police science teacher at Hawkeye Community College, and Jenni Laughlin-Stevenson, NRA instructor.
LeaAnn Saul, chair of Republicans of Black Hawk County, will act as moderator. Upon arriving at the town hall, attendees will be given an opportunity to submit a question to the panel. The questions will be randomly drawn.
The event is Thursday, September 19, 2019, and starts at 7:00 p.m. at the Waterloo Center for the Arts, 225 Commercial Avenue, Waterloo, IA. Tickets can be acquired for the town hall on Eventbrite’s website https://www.eventbrite.com/e/red-flag-law-townhall-tickets-72542383221 (no cost). A photo ID will be required to enter the event.
