Today Iowa's Supreme Court issued a Statewide weapons ban in all Iowa courthouses.
Chief Justice Mark Cady says all visitors will be banned from carrying firearms into Iowa courthouses, but the order does not impact peace officers.
Currently 72 Iowa counties prohibit weapons in courthouses, but very few have ways of enforcing that. Twenty-seven have no ban and Cady says the inconsistencies between the counties must be corrected "to uniformly protect all Iowans."
