Some areas around Iowa have posted signs saying, “Weapons Free Zone,” or “No Firearms.” Since they are not governed by the State they have no formal backing. Weapon Free Zones are rules put in place by the facility and governed by the facility. Thus if you break that rule you will be charged with trespassing. Same rule goes with some one’s private residence, if they don’t want firearms or weapons in their home you don’t have the right to break their rules. It is your Constitutional right to be able to carry a firearm in these places, legally you can carry in these places as long as the businesses don’t know you have a weapon.

In your residence if a burglar was in your house, just his presence isn’t enough to take his life. You have to feel like your life or your family is at risk. You can use other forms of force just not deadly force. If that burglar did have a weapon and he threatened to take your life then you can be justified. Your best line of defense is dialing 911 The Police are there to help you and to catch the bad guys, so give them as much information as you can. Tell them your address, what you are wearing, and the location of the burglar, and do it all from the safety from your home. If and when you are carrying a weapon, no matter where it is or what it is, getting pulled over by an officer shouldn’t be a nightmare. Give the officer your driver’s license, registration, insurance, and also your concealed carry permit. Also, you may want to inform the officer were the weapon is so he/she can take the situation in to their hands. Every person is different and every situation is different so there is no good answer to this. If you do not have your concealed weapon permit on you and you are questioned it will be a misdemeanor charge. When choosing the firearm for you, make sure it fits your needs, Don’t purchase something that you don’t like or doesn’t feel comfortable. If you don’t like it, you won’t carry it. Always be prepared to use it, so make sure its loaded with ammunition you can trust. Keep your gun is clean and in working order.
