Help Us Draw a Line in the Sand!

I know it seems like school just started last week and the heat just dropped out of the 90’s yesterday, but we’re already a week into October. That means that the election season is almost upon us. In fact, early voting is just days away. You see, in Iowa, over 40% of all votes cast in the general election are done via early voting. This year, some estimate that that

Gun Control Freight Train!

Everything changed in Iowa in the fight for gun rights on February 14 — the date of the Parkland, FL shooting. Within a day, our Constitutional Carry bill was pulled for the year. Within a week, House leadership signaled that they were officially in retreat and began talking about advancing ‘Red Flag Gun Seizure’ legislation. Within a month, two thousand Iowans came out and mobbed the Iowa Capitol demanding a

Video Update on ‘Red Flag Gun Seizure’ Legislation -- TAKE ACTION!

Michael Bloomberg is probably smiling from ear to ear right now in NYC, as he plots the eradication of Second Amendment freedom in Iowa. That’s because the support for ‘Red Flag Gun Seizure’ legislation continues to grow — being sold as a ‘common sense compromise’ amongst lawmakers when they reconvene in Des Moines. It’s already passed in ‘red states’ like Florida and Indiana, and with Republican Speaker Pro-Tem Matt Windshitl

Terry Branstad Did It...

As you know, Iowa Gun Owners has been working to get both Fred Hubbell and Kim Reynolds to sign our short, 8 question, gun rights candidate survey for several weeks. So far, neither candidate will go on the record and pledge to fight for gun owners and to oppose all forms of gun control. As a reminder, you can view the survey for yourself here. As gun owners, we should

Don't Let Bloomberg's Cronies Shut Iowa Gun Owners Down!

Any day now, I expect a loud knock at my door. A slick anti-gun government lawyer — armed with trumped-up legal complaints from Michael Bloomberg-backed gun control organizations and their pals in the General Assembly — will be grinning from ear-to-ear as he tells me, “SEE YOU IN COURT!” When I first started Iowa Gun Owners I thought things like this didn’t happen in America. But today, with the critical

Will She Pledge to Fight for Gun Owners?

Will Kim Reynolds sign the Iowa Gun Owners gubernatorial survey? That’s the question that I have been asked almost 100 times since we announced that we sent both Kim Reynolds and Fred Hubbell their surveys just over a week ago. The purpose of the survey is very simple — we want to know what both of these candidates would do as our next Governor when it comes to our gun

SIG P229 Winner Is...

As you know, Iowa Gun Owners recently asked our members to sign our ‘Second Amendment Turnout Pledge,’ promising to support only pro-gun candidates in the upcoming elections. Everyone who signed their pledge, whether online or through the mail, was automatically entered to win a FREE SIG P229 from Iowa Gun Owners. I’m pleased to announce that the winner of this incredible firearm — the very piece carried by members of

'Red Flags Gun Seizure’ Legislation Signed Into Law!

Late last month, Illinois Governor Bruce Rauner signed a sweeping gun control bill into law in nearby Illinois. The legislation, referred to as ‘Red Flag Gun Seizures’ allows the government to come into your home and seize your firearms before you’ve even been arrested — much less convicted — of anything! Perhaps even worse, the court hearings where these decisions are made are usually done ex-parte style, meaning you wouldn’t

Urge Iowa's Gubernatorial Candidates To Fill Out the Iowa Gun Owners Candidate Questionnaire

“Which gubernatorial candidate will stand up and fight for gun owners next session in Des Moines?” I have been asked that question hundreds of times since the June primaries have come and gone. On the one hand, Fred Hubbell claims to be a supporter of the Second Amendment, using some of the same talking points that moderate Democrats across that country use at election time. That said, in his primary,

But just in case you have missed out on this, we have produced this video update for you explaining what’s at stake here in Iowa. You can watch that right here!
