Connie Ryan of the Interfaith Alliance Action Fund said legislation to make gun rights more uniform across Iowa ignores issues of safety.

“When we talk about guns and gun safety, any issue that comes before the legislature, we look through the lens of the safety of children and communities,” Ryan said. “And nothing in this bill tells me that that lens is what the priority is. I was opposed walking into the room on this bill, I’m even further opposed after listening to my colleagues.”

Ryan said she is gravely concerned about the legislation and “the danger that it can place our children in and our communities in.”

It’s an interesting statement from Ryan, who routinely opposed pro-life legislation for unborn babies and staunchly supports abortion.
