When an apology just isn’t enough (see our original story on this here):
Iowa Secretary of State Paul Pate recorded a video apologizing to members of the Iowa Firearms Coalition for his office’s failure to meet a requirement that would have advanced a pro-gun amendment to Iowa’s Constitution.
The error set the gun rights amendment back years.
“Dear members of the Iowa Firearms Coalition: I want to take this opportunity to express my sincere regrets and apologies for the bureaucratic oversight in my office that resulted in a setback in making the right to keep and bear arms part of the Iowa Constitution,” Pate said in the video and in a written apology.
Pate said in the video that his office has instituted a system to make sure a similar error does not happen again.
