Do you want to know how to get your Iowa FFL? Are you overwhelmed by the heavy handed Federal regulations and confusing laws and rules about being an FFL in Iowa? Don’t worry, you aren’t alone!
Iowa is famous deer hunting country. Vast cornfields and other crop land create and ideal place for monster bucks to grow, and there are plenty of people eager to acquire the tools to harvest those bucks! Iowa FFL holders can quite readily find an eager market for everything from basic hunting rifles to fancy precision long range guns and everything in between.
NFA items are also quite popular in Iowa. Iowa FFL’s can find a steady market selling silencers and other popular NFA devices to an eager and waiting market.
Ready to get your Iowa FFL? Great! Let’s look at the simple steps you need to get it.
The ATF has pretty basic requirements to get an FFL. So basic in fact, we’ll only glance at them, because the real problem lies with Iowa licenses and rules.
To get an FFL, the ATF requires that you basically be a law abiding US citizen or permanent resident over 21 years of age who can legally own a firearm. Pretty simple stuff really. The paperwork is annoying, and you have to demonstrate you are planning to operate a business, but that’s not too hard.
What is hard for would-be Iowa FFL holders is that the ATF also requires that you have all appropriate state and local licenses before you can be in business. And that is where the “fun” starts…
Iowa makes it very easy to get an FFL, because there are no state-specific firearms licenses. While some states require a redundant sort of “state issued FFL” Iowa only requires you to get regular business licenses.
While there are no state level gun dealer licenses, you must still be successfully licensed with the state and the local area you are doing business in. You also have to operate in a correctly zoned area that matches the type of business you are doing.
It isn’t too hard to get an Iowa FFL. In fact, there are absolutely no redundant state licenses to get. Just get your Iowa FFL and a regular business license and you are good to go!
You must still be successfully licensed with the state and the local area you are doing business in. You also have to operate in a correctly zoned area that matches the type of business you are doing.
Iowa has a lot of small towns and rural areas with less restrictive zoning regulations than developed population centers. That means if you want to get a home based FFL in Iowa, it should be pretty easy.
As you can see, you cannot get your Iowa FFL until you are licensed to do business at the location you choose. Both the ATF and the State of Iowa require that you be properly licensed locally before you can do business.
It is impossible to describe all the possible local problems getting a business license in Iowa for your FFL. Typically your biggest issue will be zoning. If you are in town that’s usually pretty cut and dried. If you are trying to set up a home based FFL, you need to make sure that you can get a zoning variance for the kind of business you are trying to operate.
To get your Iowa FFL, you’ll likely mostly have to satisfy the ATF that you’ve done your homework. Local business licenses shouldn’t be a problem, but there is always the chance that local offices could try and hold you up.
