The Fight for Gun Rights is On in Des Moines!

Moments ago, the gavel fell on the start of the 2019 legislative session in Des Moines! Iowa Gun Owners staff was on hand, as we know this session will have major ramifications on our gun rights in the years ahead. And while we’ve only just begun this session, insiders report that it may be a very short session — meaning we have to act fast! That’s why IGO has prepared

Gun Rights Battle Starts Tomorrow in Des Moines!

It all starts tomorrow! The 2019 legislative session starts tomorrow, and with it, our fight to defend and expand the Second Amendment will go into overdrive. And while we’re going to be focusing heavily on passing Constitutional Carry law, it’s imperative that we stop ‘Red Flag Gun Seizure’ legislation, too. That’s why I hope you’ll take a moment to sign the petition that we’ve prepared for you below. More on

Announcing Constitutional Carry Sponsor in the Iowa House!

With the 2019 legislative session starting on Monday, Iowa Gun Owners is pleased to announce that in addition to Senator Brad Zaun being our lead sponsor in the Senate, we have secured a strong bill sponsor in the House, too. Representative-Elect Jeff Shipley (R-Jefferson Co) has been a long-time proponent of the Second Amendment and, having recently won his election to the Iowa House, happily agreed to sponsor this critical

Help us Stop Nancy Pelosi’s War Against Gun Owners!

It’s game time for gun owners! Nancy Pelosi’s war against gun owners is officially underway, as the 116th United States Congress kicked off about an hour ago in Washington D.C. And let me tell you, Pelosi has vowed to make passage of radical gun control a major priority in this session of Congress! So while we focus the majority of our efforts on passing Constitutional Carry (as well as blocking

NRA Exposed: Their Deadly Support for Red Flag Gun Seizure Laws

I take no great pleasure in writing this email. But it’s an email I have to write, to prepare you for the coming onslaught of ‘Red Flag Gun Seizure’ legislation not only here in Iowa — but across the country. ‘Red Flag Gun Seizure’ legislation would empower left-wing judges to order your firearms confiscated without due process. No charges, no day in court, no conviction of anything whatsoever — just

Senator Brad Zaun Sponsoring Constitutional Carry!

When the fight over Constitutional Carry first started here in Iowa, only two states had similar legislation already on the books. The two states, Alaska and Vermont, were chalked up as flukes and rural areas by anti-gun legislators who laughed at gun owners and tried to downplay this legislation in Iowa. Then Wyoming, Arizona and Arkansas followed suit. In 2015, Kansas and Maine became Constitutional Carry states. In 2016, Idaho,

Church Leaders Demanding Red Flag Gun Control in Iowa!

Repeal our cherished Stand-Your-Ground law. Set up a statewide registry of every gun owner in Iowa. And, most importantly, pass ‘Red Flag Gun Seizure Order’ legislation in 2019. That was the gist of the statement issued by leaders of the Catholic Church here in Iowa this week, with bishops from Sioux City to Dubuque adding their name in support. Make no mistake, for lawmakers who are on the fence about

Red Flag Gun Seizures!

The 2019 legislative session will be here before you know it, and you and I have to be ready to FIGHT to stop ‘Red Flag Gun Seizure Orders’ from becoming law in Iowa. Lawmakers in state after state have been pre-filing this legislation in their efforts to ram this legislation into law before grassroots gun owners like you and I can fight back! In Missouri, for example, Senator Jill Schupp

Michael Bloomberg in Iowa!

We’re only days away from the November 6 elections and frankly, it’s “do-or-die” time. Our radio and TV ads, direct mail, mass email, and online ad programs are running full tilt but we need your help to keep them going. The fact is, our backs are against the wall. Michael Bloomberg — safely tucked away in his mansion over 1100 miles away from Iowa — is funding a massive assault

They Want Him GONE!

Nothing mobilizes gun owners faster than taking our message up on TV. That’s just a reality. And with ‘Whacky Jackie’ Smith just buying up another $50,000 for TV ads in the final days of this election cycle, gun owners in Iowa need to stand up! The fact is, Jackie Smith is the most anti-gun candidate running in this 2-year cycle. She supports every gun control proposal that you can think
