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

As you likely remember, this is the bill that would allow your firearms to be confiscated by the government before you’ve been arrested, indicted, or
