Of

Victory in North Liberty!

We did it again! Last night, in the heart of the traditionally liberal bastion of Johnson Co., North Liberty joined the ranks of other towns like Nevada, George, North Burlington, Dubuque, Kalona and others who walked into a grassroots buzz-saw when they tried to crack down on the 2nd Amendment! From day one, it was clear to us that Mayor Amy Nielson was ready to “go to the mat” with

Massive Response in North Liberty!

“I was wrong… …you CAN fight city hall and win!” That’s what one North Liberty resident and Iowa Gun Owners member told me after last night’s climatic showdown in the City Hall in North Liberty.

Gun Ban Pending in Winnebago County - Action Needed!

It’s been some time since a county or city here in Iowa tried to ban guns in public places. The word got out in 2014, after the members of Iowa Gun Owners shut down seven such attempts in a row, that gun owners are sick and tired of being treated like second class citizens and will take action to defend their freedoms, often embarrassing anti-gun local officials in the process.

Victory in West Chester: IGO Members Come Through Again!

“Thank you, from the bottom of our hearts, for all that your membership did here in West Chester!” That was a familiar phone call heard in the IGO office all day Saturday, after the West Chester City Council was forced to remove their proposed gun ordinance from the agenda, in response to your calls and emails, effectively killing the proposal to crack down on gun owners’ rights.
