Save the Date for a Machine Gun Shoot in Iowa!

With our gun rights under attack from what seems to be all sides right now, I want to personally invite you to attend the Iowa Gun Owners 2018 membership rally on June 16! This is going to be the gun rights event of the year here in Iowa, and you don’t want to miss it. With the media and anti-gun lawmakers across the state screaming for gun control — not

Will Iowa Become the Next Constitutional Carry State?

Anti-gun activist Michael Bloomberg must be grinning from ear to ear. With only weeks left in the 2018 session of the Iowa General Assembly, elements of House and Senate Republican leadership are scheming to do the gun-grabbers’ work for them by KILLING Constitutional Carry! You and I began the year with a head of steam, adding 18 Senate cosponsors to S.F. 2106 and looking like we were going to breeze

Bloomberg Funded War in Iowa!

“This is crazy! I never thought I’d live to see so many people in Iowa fighting to destroy the Second Amendment. I need to become a member now!” That’s what Owen, from Spencer, told us over the phone last night as many of you have contacted us about the massive gun control protests going on in Iowa — and across the nation — this weekend. Simply put, many Iowans were

Video Update on Federal 'Assault Weapons' Ban!

As the Feinstein ‘Assault Weapons Ban’ picks up supporters, including Iowa’s Congressman Dave Loebsack, many of you are asking us questions about it. That’s why we’ve taken a few minutes to produce this video update for you on the details of the bill. Simply put: you won’t believe how many firearms that you and I can legally own today would be confiscated under this bill. More, there is no grandfather

Attack in Maryland!

Tuesday morning the Fake News, anti-gun lawmakers, and gun control groups were jumping up and down as another school shooting was playing out on national TV. Like all of the shootings before it, gun grabbers were hoping to use the news of the Maryland school shooting to further their ant-gun agenda. But by noon, the story seemingly vanished. That’s because — far from making the case for gun control —

Assault Weapons Ban!

In the wake of the Florida shooting, the radical gun-grabbers in Washington D.C. are moving as fast as they can to ‘cash in’ in any way they can. That’s exactly what is happening with Senator Feinstein’s newly filed Assault Weapons Ban, a bill that would specifically ban 196 different firearms! 196! And this isn’t just a listing of exotic firearms; this listing includes rifles, handguns, and shotguns. Of course, with

Tell Iowa Lawmakers to Stand and Fight!

The entire political world changed overnight with the February 14 killings in Parkland, Florida that left 17 dead and another 14 wounded. Our anti-gun media both nationally and here in Iowa are still doing all they can to “cash in” on those killings, effectively blaming law-abiding gun owners for the tragedy! Never mind the fact that the gun-grabbers’ “fixes” don’t stop horrific events like in Parkland.  They cause them. Never

The Fight for Gun Rights is Raging!

Everywhere you look — from legislators in Des Moines to the White House in D.C. — politicians are banging the drums for gun control. The only force capable of stopping the destruction of our Second Amendment rights are grassroots gun rights activists. Over the last two weeks, IGO members and supporters responded in mass, making their voices heard by sending off waves of email to our Congressional leaders in D.C.

Utter Contempt

“They don’t give a rip about us, the ones who put them in office in the first place. They have utter contempt for us –- and that’s a two-way street.” That was the reaction I got on the phone when I first walked into the office this morning and began receiving calls from IGO members who saw our video last night. In a display of sheer cowardice, the Iowa Senate

Constitutional Carry Scheduled for a Full Committee Vote This Week!

Constitutional Carry continues to advance in the Iowa Senate, and is now scheduled for a vote in the full Judiciary Committee! The committee is scheduled to vote on the bill THIS THURSDAY! This is a fantastic step, but now we need your help to ensure that this bill moves through the Judiciary Committee as soon as possible. It is not a ‘done deal’ that we are going to pass this
