Technically it is legal for you to own them as long as they are carried in the confines of your own home or on private property that you possess. Iowa does not do a very good job of clarifying this as they do not expressly mention brass knuckles or anything like them in the wording of their laws.
However, read Chapter 724.4, subsection 1 which I have paraphrased below.
724.4 Carrying weapons.
1. Except as otherwise provided in this section, a person who goes armed with a dangerous weapon concealed on or about the person, or who, within the limits of any city, goes armed with a pistol or revolver, or any loaded firearm of any kind, whether concealed or not, or who knowingly carries or transports in a vehicle a pistol or revolver, commits an aggravated misdemeanor.
Nowhere in Chapter 724 do they mention brass knuckles and do not define brass knuckles under offensive weapons in Chapter 724.1. However, from the quote above, "a dangerous weapon" could be construed to mean brass knuckles. Having done a little bit of quick case law search from Iowa, brass knuckles generally fall under this category of "dangerous weapon" making them illegal. The exception to making them illegal if they indeed are lies in Chapter 724.4, subsection 4, part a which can be seen below.
4. Subsections 1 through 3 do not apply to any of the following:
a. A person who goes armed with a dangerous weapon in the person's own dwelling or place of business, or on land owned or possessed by the person.
There are 34 states in the Unted States that have a stand-your-ground law. Of those 34 states, Iowa, Virginia, and Washington have their own version of the stand-your-ground law.
Procedural law: The part of the law that specifies the methods to be used in enforcing substantive law.
A law can't just be cancelled. It has to be replaced with another law. If you pay attention to what is happening with the health care law you can see the process of what happens.

Only in a theoretical context because there is no written 'moral law' that governs actions in society
It depends where you are. In many places they could be classed as offensive weapons.Added: (in the US) brass knuckles (of any description) are classified as Prohibited Weapons. The mere possession of them is against the law.

University of Iowa College of Law was created in 1865.
Iowa has laws in place that limit the amount that can be taken from wages. The law in Iowa states that creditors can only garnish up to 25 percent of wages.

No, it goes against the "metal knuckles" law.
Yes you will, if you're caught. In America, brass knuckles are an illegal weapon if you're not law enforcement, within the boundaries of the US. While citing chapter and verse of each State law in this context, you'll find that this is controlled at the State level, but in cases of air travel, there may also be Federal consequences as well. While stowed leggage *may* not be scanned, policy on this varies quite a lot over time and location. Ironically, if properly registered, declared and stowed, a rifle or handgun will not raise an eyebrow. I'd avoid possession of that weapon myself.
The Iowa State law, declares it illegal to kill bats that are out in the wild.
Yes It Is
Depends on if you are breaking the law.
No, Iowa is one of the 13 states which does not have such a law. (It's still a good idea to use one though)
There isn't an exception to the front license plate law in Iowa. Regardless of the car type, the car must have a front license plate.
