Chuck Grassley NEEDS to Hear from You!

Just days ago, a hero in Texas used his AR-15 to shoot and wound a madman who was killing dozens of people in a church with his own AR-15. The case highlights the fact that guns are just tools, as good or evil as the person holding it. But never one to waste a tragedy, the anti-gun left is seizing on the Vegas and Texas shootings as a way to

VIDEO UPDATE on Gun Control Bill in D.C.

As the demands for gun control continue to mount in the wake of the Las Vegas shooting, members of the Iowa Congressional delegation are beginning to give in to the pressure. That’s why we’ve prepared this video update for you. Please take a moment to watch this video now! When you’re done, please do four things right away. >>> First, share this video with all of your pro-gun friends and

We're Not Giving An Inch!

It’s been over a week since a madman launched a deadly attack in Las Vegas that killed and wounded hundreds of people. An Iowa mother, who went to high school just miles from where I grew up, was amoungst the dead. The pictures and videos that have emerged from that night are difficult to watch and even more difficult to understand –- and compounded by the fact that we may

We're Giving Away Six Glocks!

“Mike Gronstal loses his re-election!” This was the shot heard around the state last November as mobilized gun owners threw Gronstal out of office over his blockade of the pro-gun legislation. Of course, Mike Gronstal wasn’t the only legislator that Iowa Gun Owners worked so hard to expose with TV and radio ads, mail, slicks, social media efforts and more. In all, six of six Iowa Senate incumbents were bounced

Major Fight Coming Over Constitutional Carry!

Politicians listen to one thing — political pressure in their districts. Anyone who tells you otherwise, especially if it’s your local legislator, is naïve or trying to sell you something. We’ve seen this time and time again, most recently in our fight to advance Stand-Your-Ground law: grassroots pressure works! That’s why, during the summer and fall months before the 2018 legislative session, Iowa Gun Owners is working overtime trying to

I Support Constitutional Carry But...

As the liberal media here in Iowa continues to try to demonize the gun bill that was passed here in Iowa this year, I can hardly wait to see them explode as we push for Constitutional Carry next session! Of course, they are going to scream bloody murder, but all of their bluster and hype will be more of the same FAKE NEWS that you and I have come to

The Next Step for Iowa

For years, former Senate Majority Leader Mike Gronstal said, “No!” For years, former Judiciary Chairman Steve Sodders said, “No!” For years, the liberal media here in Iowa smugly said, “No!” All of the ‘cool kids’ in Des Moines have been saying “No” to Constitutional Carry for a long time -– but now it is our turn! The members of Iowa Gun Owners sent a deafening message last year to gun-grabbers

Rep. Baudler Files Bogus Charges Against Iowa Gun Owners!

My attorney advised me not to utter a peep about it until after the case was wrapped up. He told me what I knew all along. That the trumped-up “ethics charges” I was being hit with by Iowa Public Safety Committee Chairman, Clel Baudler — an outspoken opponent of Constitutional Carry — was payback . . . Payback for our success in FORCING the General Assembly to pass Stand-Your-Ground and

Stand-Your-Ground Takes Effect Here in Iowa!

On behalf of the Board of Directors, I wanted to be one of the first to congratulate you on making Stand-Your-Ground law a reality here in Iowa! Stand-Your-Ground law (House File 517) officially takes effect today! None of this would have happened without your nonstop work! All of your calls, all of your emails, and all of your financial contributions combined to make this issue one of the hottest in

Constitutional Carry on the Move!

Texas legislators want to call a special session to pass it. North Carolina voted it through the House yesterday. The Wisconsin State Senate had their first public hearing on it just last week. And gun owners in Michigan are making us look bad by passing it through committee and sending it to the House for a full vote soon. “It” is Constitutional Carry, and this legislation is on the move
