US Senate to NSA: Are you tracking gun owners??

For several years, Iowa Gun Owners’ members have been pushing to repeal the Iowa permit to purchase law on the grounds that having it in place is unconstitutional. Having to obtain a permit to exercise a constitutional right is just backwards. More, it harkens back to the era of “Jim Crow” laws from last century where one group of citizens denied the right to own firearms to another group of

"Mental Health Reform" - Gun Control in Camouflage!

This week the Governor of Florida is being asked to sign HB-1355 into law. HB-1355, a reaction to what happened last year in Connecticut, is similar to legislation proposed in Iowa this year and is something that we may be dealing with again next year. HB-1355 would vastly expand the growing list of “prohibited persons” in Florida who are blocked from possessing firearms – over 100,000 gun owners would lose

The IRS and Your Gun Rights

By now you’ve likely heard about the growing scandal in Washington D.C. The IRS just admitted that they were using the full power of their agency to target conservative political organizations in an attempt to shut them down or keep them from ever getting started. Organizations similar to Iowa Gun Owners, or perhaps your local Tea Party organization, or a regional pro-life organization, have been targeted in a disgusting abuse

Iowa Congressman Dave Loebsack Supporting Gun Control!

Since the day that gun control died in the US Senate last month, we’ve been warning that this fight was not over. President Obama made it clear that it was just the first step in a long process. Vice President Biden said that, “…the political dynamic has changed. So I think we’re going to get this anyway. I think this will pass before the year is out, within this Congress.”

Act Now to Stop the UN Small Arms Treaty!!

The number-one item on President Obama’s anti-gun agenda is anything but dead. And after the Boston bombing, gun-grabbers think they have the perfect excuse right now to RAM the so-called “United Nations’ Small Arms Treaty” down Americans’ throats. With Treaty language finalized by the UN on April 2, 2013, you and I could be headed straight for a showdown in the U.S. Senate in just a matter of weeks. And

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


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
