UPDATE on H.R. 5717!

As we recently told you, Elizabeth Warren and dozens of anti-gun socialists in Washington, D.C. have declared open war on gun owners with H.R. 5717/S. 3254! This bill is a whopping one hundred and eleven pages of freedom-crushing tyranny that would permanently alter your right to keep and bear arms here in Iowa. From a national gun owners permit, to ‘Red Flag Gun Seizures,’ to a ban on the sale

Massive Gun Control Bill Filed in D.C.

  While America is on lock down across the country, radical socialists in Washington, D.C. are working overtime to advance the biggest gun control bill that I’ve seen in the 12 years that I have been fighting for gun rights! You might think that with the Dow plummeting 35% percent in the last month and with America facing the potential of 20% unemployment in the coming weeks, that these people

Details on the Stafford Act...

  As the state and federal response to the Coronavirus gets larger by the hour, Iowans want to know just how far this power can extend where their gun rights are concerned. If you missed our email about the limitations of Governor Reynolds’ power during a disaster declaration from last week, read that here. (The short version is that your rights are protected here in Iowa from any state, county,

Restricting Gun Rights During a Crisis...

  If you had told Iowans a month ago that they were 30 days away from it being against the law to eat in a restaurant, go to their gym, go to a movie, or worship in their church, people would have assumed you were crazy! And if you told people that it would be against the law to be in any group of ten or more people, they probably

This Is Why We Need Constitutional Carry!

  Travel bans. Empty store shelves. State of emergency declarations. State/counties ending concealed carry permit applications. If there was ever a doubt in your mind as to why it is essential that Iowa pass Constitutional Carry legislation, I trust the news of the last few days has answered that question for you, once and for all. While it’s hard to separate prudent preparation from mass panic on the part of

Everyone in Council Bluffs Will Know

Politicians lie.  Everyone knows it, and everyone hates them for it.  As Iowa’s leading gun rights organization, we expect politicians to keep the campaign promises that they made to gun owners. And when they break those promises, we hold them accountable!  Sure, there are plenty of organizations in the Capitol who will protect liars because they are desperate to remain in their good graces, but Iowa Gun Owners has never

Share This Ad with Every Gun Owner You Know!

Moments ago, the 2020 legislative session kicked off in Des Moines With Michael Bloomberg’s announcement that he is spending $250,000 to advance ‘Red Flag Gun Seizure’ legislation (H.F. 2367) here in Iowa, everything has changed. His digital ad buy is going to be generating a massive amount of pressure on targeted Senators, tempting them to ‘make a deal’ on this bill. And given the weakness that we’ve seen from moderate

Buy a Gun, Get Hit with a Red Flag Gun Seizure!

As nasty as ‘Red Flag Gun Seizure’ legislation is in general, I wanted to call your attention to one part of that bill we are fighting against here in Iowa, in particular. Again, ‘Red Flag Gun Seizure’ laws would allow you to have your guns confiscated and your permits seized through secret, ex-parte court proceedings that you know nothing about — and before you’ve been convicted of a crime! It

Watch Out for This Red Flag Bait and Switch!

  As thousands of Iowans have learned over the last few days, ‘Red Flag Gun Seizure’ legislation (H.F. 2367) has been filed and is on the move here in Iowa. We detailed this bill in our alert last night, and also gave you a link to enable you to automatically email your lawmakers in opposition to this bill.

Red Flag Gun Seizure Legislation Filed in Iowa!

We’ve been preparing gun owners for this fight for some time, and now it’s here. ‘Red Flag Gun Seizure’ legislation has been filed in the Iowa House of Representatives, and folks, this is one of the worst versions of this legislation that we’ve ever seen. And that’s why I hope that you’ll take immediate action to help us shut down House File 2367, before it gets too high off the
