State Legislation

A New Tool in the Fight for Gun Rights!

Do you ever get the idea that your lawmakers only want to hear from you every two years, when they are looking for your votes around the time of their re-election? If you’ve ever thought that way, it’s because it’s true. Sure, they may shake your hand at a county function or give you 30 seconds at a forum one Saturday every couple of months, but that’s mostly a chance


The 2020 session of the Iowa legislature kicked off with a bang yesterday in Des Moines! In the opening hours of the 2020 session, over 2,500 emails descended into the legislature from all corners of the state reminding lawmakers of two things: First, Iowans want Constitutional Carry law passed in 2020! Second, Iowans are bitterly opposed to Constitution-shredding ‘Red Flag Gun Seizure’ legislation! The pressure was visible on the faces

It’s no secret that gun grabbers here in Iowa are fired up. In the wake of the El Paso, TX and Dayton, OH shootings, gun grabbers are going for broke

Help Us Stop Red Flags and Gun Confiscation!

The gun grabbers in Des Moines are going all out in their attack against our gun rights, having filed almost two dozen gun control bills during the 2019 session alone! But two bills are at the absolute top of the gun-grabbers’ list: ‘Red Flag Gun Seizures’ and ‘Universal Background Checks!’ It’s easy to see why. ‘Red Flag’ laws allow virtually anyone, from an embittered ex-spouse to an anti-gun neighbor, to

Iowa Lawmakers Want to Ban Your AR-15!

I’m getting a little nervous, with the next session of the Iowa General Assembly almost upon us, as I haven’t received your renewed membership for 2020 yet. If you already renewed your membership online or through the mail and our records simply haven’t had time to catch up — then I certainly apologize for the confusion. But if you have not yet renewed your membership, won’t you please take a

Gun Grabbers Want to Destroy Iowa Gun Owners!

Two years ago, it was then-Public Safety Committee Chairman and State Representative Clel Baudler who tried to shut the doors of Iowa Gun Owners forever with a bogus 47-page ‘ethics charge,’ against me and our wonderful organization. Of course, this complaint was dismissed 6-0 by the bi-partisan House Ethics Committee, as the complaint was absolutely absurd and motivated by Baudler’s personal animus alone. The year before that, some of the
