Iowa: Time for the Second Amendment Preservation Act!

Last week, the Ohio House Government Oversight Committee advanced the Second Amendment Preservation Act (SAPA) through committee by a party line vote of 7-4. Even better, the Speaker of the House just announced a date for the floor vote meaning SAPA is rocking and rolling in Ohio! Following on the heels of Missouri’s ground-breaking legislation, SAPA is spreading across ‘red’ states. I don’t know about you, but I think it’s HIGH TIME that the Iowa General Assembly stops locking SAPA down in committee and defends gun owners here in Iowa from Joe Biden!


SAPA law is simple: it says that Iowa cops are to enforce Iowa laws when it comes to firearms, ammunition, and accessories.  In other words, if Biden wants to have his unconstitutional Executive Orders against our gun rights enforced here in Iowa — he’d need to use federal authorities to do it! And that’s a problem for Biden…he doesn’t have the manpower. This is simply the 10th Amendment applied. Iowa is a sovereign state. Biden can’t force us to carry out his agenda. Passing SAPA — peacefully refusing to help Joe Biden enforce gun control — is the single most important thing the General Assembly can do to defend Iowans right now.


You see, if we don’t take away the manpower that Biden has been using to enforce his Executive Orders, at a certain point, it won’t matter how many gun bills we pass into law in Des Moines… …because we’ll end up being the mere pawns of the federal government. Our Founding Fathers gave us the 10th Amendment because they knew that at some point the federal government would go full-blown tyrannical, and the states needed their own sovereignty.  We’ve got it. Now it’s time the legislature uses it. Session begins soon! So please sign your petition urging your State Senator and State Representative to support the Second Amendment Preservation Act next session.


After you’ve signed your petition, please consider a donation to help Iowa Gun Owners mobilize an army of gun owners across the state!
