The Iowa legislature has adjourned for the year. And while lawmakers are slapping themselves on the back for ‘what a great year it was,’ the truth is that gun owners were betrayed this year in Des Moines. While gun owners stopped a lot of bad bills, power hungry lawmakers stopped all of the good ones, too. Watch our 2019 legislative session video recap here! As you just heard, Republican leaders
With the 2019 legislative session nearing the end, I have to tell you, I’m more nervous than ever that we may see a last minute move on ‘Red Flag Gun Seizure’ legislation in Des Moines. As you’ll see below, Iowa’s House and Senate leaders have totally buckled under the pressure from both radical anti-gun activists and moderates in their own caucuses all session –- and anti-gunners are sensing an opportunity.
If you listen hard enough, you can hear Michael Bloomberg laughing from his NYC war-room all the way out here in Iowa. That’s because the US Senate Judiciary Committee just gave Bloomberg and Dianne Feinstein exactly what they wanted -– a public hearing on S.7, the ‘Red Flag Gun Seizure’ legislation that we have been warning you about! The truth is, the fight over ‘Red Flag Gun Seizure’ legislation is
Outrageous! Back-stabbers! Liars! These are just some of the words that gun owners have been using to describe the Iowa Senate Judiciary Committee after they announced they killed Constitutional Carry this year in their committee — and lashed out at Iowa Gun Owners in the process! I have to tell you, it’s hard to disagree with this sentiment when you consider what gun owners have done here in Iowa in
In the wake of the hearing on ‘Red Flag Gun Seizures’ a few days ago in the US Senate Judiciary Committee, gun owners across the state have been calling us in disbelief. That’s because not a single US Senator stood up in opposition to this legislation and fought for gun owners or the Second Amendment. Not a single one! More, all of the witnesses testified in favor of the bill.
With the hearing on ‘Red Flag Gun Seizure’ legislation just days away from kicking off in Washington, D.C., gun owners across the country are furious! Afterall, this hearing is not taking place in the Democrat-controlled House of Representatives at the direction of Nancy Pelosi. Instead, the Republican-controlled Senate is conducting these hearings, meaning that we are being betrayed by our ‘friends.’ But it gets much worse than that. To find
We’ve just released our new ad entitled: “Stop Red Flag Gun Seizures!” The ad encourages Second Amendment supporters to contact Iowa Senators Chuck Grassley and Joni Ernst insisting they oppose “Red Flag Gun Seizures” (Senate Bill 7) when the bill comes before them on the Judiciary Committee next week!

While many gun owners are focused on what’s happening to our gun rights — or not happening to our gun rights — in Des Moines, we can’t take our eye off of Washington, D.C. As we’ve warned you about for some time, ‘Red Flag Gun Seizure’ legislation is the most dangerous threat that gun owners have faced in decades! That’s because rather than attack a specific firearm or accessory, ‘Red
Despite tens of thousands of calls and emails from gun owners across the state, Senate Republicans REFUSED to allow Constitutional Carry to move through the Judiciary Committee during the end of the ‘funnel week.’ Gun owners are outraged! But if you’re angry about this betrayal — especially as it happened while three other states passed the same bill –- your blood will boil when you hear how Senator Jason Schultz
I spent most of Monday afternoon in the Capitol, meeting with key lawmakers asking them why they were holding up Constitutional Carry legislation. (If you’ve missed our previous updates and need to get caught up, you can read this, this and this.) As I walked from the back of the ‘well’ (the area behind the Senate floor) down to the first floor to cut a live video update, I bumped
