NYT: "Senators Quietly Seeking New Path on Gun Control"

Since the crushing defeat that President Obama suffered two weeks ago while trying to force his radical agenda on us, we’ve never believed that this fight was over. We warned you that this was not over. In fact, the very day that his bills died in the Senate, President Obama announced at his press conference that “this is just the first round” in this fight. Well get ready, because the

The Next Step for Gun Owners

It feels good to win one once in a while, doesn’t it?! Yesterday, after being subjected to 4 months of withering attacks against our character and our way of life, gun owners watched as 7 out of 7 anti-gun amendments went down to defeat in the US Senate! The assault weapons ban was defeated, the ban on “high cap” magazines was shot down, and the much talked about “Manchin-Toomey” sellout

Sold Out!

It’s been quite a week in the fight to defend the 2nd Amendment. After our last email, thousands of you contacted Senator Grassley’s office and insisted that he join with over 20 of his colleagues and support the filibuster – a procedural move designed to stop the advance of the gun control proposal that was on the Floor last week. Thanks to your calls, emails, and in person conversations at

Emergency!

This is it. After all the lies, the spin, the media’s false portrayals, as well as all of your calls, emails, and attending town hall meetings – the next 2-3 days will likely tell the tale on President Obama’s gun control agenda. The stakes couldn’t be higher. Recognizing their inability to pass their ultimate goal of firearms confiscation, the anti-gunners are working overtime to strike a back-room deal with “A”

UN Passes Small Arms Treaty - Action Needed!

Two days ago, the United Nations passed their “Small Arms Treaty” with an overwhelming 155-3 vote. IGO members have been warned that this was coming for some time. The White House put their full support behind this proposal as you can imagine. In fact, it was no less than 24 hours after President Obama’s reelection, that the Obama administration announced it would pursue the U.N.’s Gun Ban. This has been

"Chuck Grassley is crafting an alternative Republican gun control bill" - Politico

“Sen. Chuck Grassley is crafting an alternative Republican gun control bill…” I had to read it twice when I saw this story on Politico last night. I shouldn’t be surprised, Iowa Gun Owners has been warning about this for some time. Gun owners’ biggest fear, ever since President Obama and his team began their crusade against gun owners 4 months ago, has been a “back room deal” between Republicans and

Des Moines Register's Stupidity Threatens School Safety!

They are at it again. The Des Moines Register’s incredible bias against guns, gun owners, and our basic freedoms is so intense that several months ago they allowed their editorial board to call for violence against pro-gun politicians. Of course, if you or I did this to anti-gun politicians we’d likely wind up in jail. But for them, it’s “protected speech.” Well, in that same vein, yesterday’s “protected speech” from

Now is Your Chance to Meet with Senator Grassley - Tell Him to Oppose ALL Gun Control!

Next month, Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid will be moving President Obama’s gun-control package to the Floor of the Senate for debate. This is the moment that gun owners having been preparing for, for four months. For months gun owners have been attacked virtually every day by the White House, the liberal media, and the anti-gun lobby. Their message is the same: demonize gun owners incessantly until they just quit

Act Now to Protect CCW Permit Holder Information!

Earlier in the year, we watched the members of the Iowa State Sheriffs and Deputies Association (ISSDA) come to Des Moines and begin to do what they do best: lobby against your gun rights. Using the intimidation power of their office, these elite anti-gun lobbyists are effective at stalling and killing pro-gun legislation – because they get to use YOUR tax money to accomplish their agenda. As we documented in

Potential Gun Vote Coming up in the Iowa Senate!

Early next week in the Iowa Senate, there will likely be a vote on allowing all school employees to carry concealed weapons on school property. Iowa Gun Owners supports this legislation, a variation of the legislation that Senator Sorenson sponsored for us earlier this year in the Senate. While not mandating that school employees be armed, this legislation would allow any employee who wants to carry a gun for self-defense
