      What part of this do you not comprehend?

      “724.4C Possession or carrying of firearms while under the influence.
      A permit issued under this chapter is invalid if the person to whom the permit is issued is intoxicated as provided in section 321J.2, subsection 1. and is classified as an aggravated misdemeanor.”

      He was stupid enough to drive drunk not once but twice, then the idiot also has a firearm in his possession while intoxicated.
