Senator Jason Schultz Sells His Soul...

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

Iowa Senate Democrats: Republicans Doing Our Work for Us!

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

Five Days for Constitutional Carry!

If you have been following our updates via Facebook and email, you know that gun owners are enraged across the state as Senate Republicans tabled Constitutional Carry last week. At the exact same time that Oklahoma had their final vote on their Constitutional Carry bill last week, Iowa lawmakers ‘tabled’ ours. And while lawmakers were lecturing me on the pressure they are tired of receiving from gun owners in their

VIDEO of Senator Dawson Lying to Gun Owners!

In case you missed it, the Senate Judiciary Committee ‘tabled’ Constitutional Carry in a hearing earlier this week — because they were a vote short of passing the bill. One of the Senators who refused to support Constitutional Carry was none other than Dan Dawson, who replaced Mike Gronstal in Council Bluffs back in 2016, thanks to gun owners! Now Dawson is lashing out at gun owners who are holding him

Republican Committee Delays Constitutional Carry!

Yesterday afternoon, for the second year in a row, the Senate Judiciary Committee removed Constitutional Carry from the day’s agenda — refusing to vote on the bill. As things stand, unless the Judiciary Committee moves this bill by next Thursday (3/7) our most direct method of passing Constitutional Carry will expire. Let me explain what happened as simply as I can. Committee (In)action: The Judiciary Committee has fifteen members, ten

If you missed our email late last night, you might have missed the fact that the Senate Judiciary Committee is scheduled to take up Constitutional Carry law at 2pm today! But Bloomberg-backed forces are doing everything they can to shut this bill down. That’s why I hope you’ll send the PRE-WRITTEN EMAIL that we have prepared for you, by clicking on the button below.

Senate Judiciary Committee Voting on Constitutional Carry Tomorrow!

This is an urgent action alert! I know it’s late, but we have just received final confirmation that Constitutional Carry legislation (S.F. 165) will be voted on in the Judiciary Committee tomorrow at 2pm! This means that you have time to communicate with the Judiciary Committee one more time, to urge their support of Constitutional Carry. But you have to act fast! So please send your PRE-WRITTEN EMAIL to the

Rep. Linda Upmeyer Needs to Hear From You Now!

If you care about the Second Amendment, then your State Representative needs to hear from you immediately! You see, Constitutional Carry is moving in the Iowa Senate. The bill (SF165) has fifteen cosponsors and has already passed a critical sub-committee. In fact, the bill will likely be voted on as early as this week, as Senate leaders are fighting for gun owners. Sadly, that’s where the good news ends. That’s
