Nobody Denied is an unprecedented review of how a change in Iowa law two years ago resulted in nearly 150,000 people obtaining permits to carry guns in public, including people who are blind or registered as sex offenders. The law change was prompted by the desire to standardize Iowa's weapon permit system, which had been riddled with disparities between counties. But the quickly passed law also contains loopholes that had been previously ignored or overlooked. Noteworthy in this series is the massive number of public record requests the series required. This investigation involved two separate record requests to each of Iowa's 99 counties in addition to many records requests of the state's public safety department.
