'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,

Happy Independence Day from Iowa Gun Owners!

Happy Independence Day from the board of directors of Iowa Gun Owners! On this day, 242 years ago, our nation adopted it’s Declaration of Independence, telling England that we would be a sovereign nation forever more. During the run-up to the 4th of July, private individuals and loose affiliations of people began to purchase and store weapons fearing all-out war with England. Hearing that everyday men and women were arming

They Smell Blood in the Water

I’m not sure I’ve ever seen the gun-grabbers’ allies here in Iowa so brazenly radical . . . Not long ago, their main objectives were primarily derailing Constitutional Carry and Stand-Your-Ground while mouthing support for “common sense gun safety.” Of course, you and I both know Michael Bloomberg’s pals here in Iowa have never really been as “harmless” to our Second Amendment freedoms as they want you and me to

In Case You Didn’t Make it to Mt. Auburn

With the heat index above 105 degrees last weekend, I know that many of you were forced to cancel your plans to attend our 2018 Iowa Gun Owners membership rally.

As the 2018 Iowa Gun Owners membership rally gets closer, I wanted to make you aware of another speaker that you will get a chance to meet and hear from. By now, every gun owner in Iowa has likely heard about gun rights champion and State Senator, Rick Bertrand. After all, it was Senator Bertrand who lead the charge for Stand-Your-Ground law for six long years, a fight that was
