Iowa: Dubuque City Council Declines to Take Up Discriminatory Ordinance

Early this week, the Dubuque City Council announced that it will decline to take up a proposal that would ban future home-based firearms businesses.  This deeply flawed proposal would have targeted law-abiding gun owners and home-based Federal Firearms License (FFL) dealers by prohibiting future conditional use permits for gun sales from residential homes.  Your NRA-ILA previously reported on this issue last September as the Dubuque City Council voted 6-1 to table the discriminatory city zoning ordinance amendment.
