Gun deaths reportedly surging in US state of Iowa

Pistols and other weapons are displayed at a shooting range during the Rod of Iron Freedom Festival on October 12, 2019 in Greeley, Pennsylvania.

The number of people losing their lives over gunshots, whether suicide or homicide, is reportedly rising in the US state of Iowa.

A record 353 Iowa residents have suffered died from gunshot wounds this, including 263 suicides and 85 homicides, the Associated Press reported.

Iowaís previous high in 2019 was 287, which shows a 23% rise in the figure.

Earlier this year, Iowa joined several other Republican states to pass laws allowing carry of guns with no permit.

Iowa Gov. Kim Reynolds signed a bill in April, which is set to go into effect Thursday.

GOP Sen. Jason Schultz has defended the citizensí "right" to carry guns without any permission or fees.

"The relationship between your state government and the citizen is going to be flipped 180 degrees," Schultz said. "You can bear that firearm without permission from the state in the form of a concealed weapon permit or in violation of any open-carry laws."

The United States has been gripped with a gun violence epidemic as gun regulations lag in protecting citizens.
