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

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

Republicans in the House Publicly Opposing Constitutional Carry!

In Oklahoma, Constitutional Carry cleared its final committee hurdle two days ago by a vote of 18-4, with two Democrats voting in favor! In Maine, Constitutional Carry passed just a few years ago and was rammed into law by Democrats who controlled the House of Representatives. In Missouri, members of the House Democratic caucus voted in favor of Constitutional Carry, when it passed into law in 2016. But here in
