Urge Iowa's Gubernatorial Candidates To Fill Out the Iowa Gun Owners Candidate Questionnaire

“Which gubernatorial candidate will stand up and fight for gun owners next session in Des Moines?” I have been asked that question hundreds of times since the June primaries have come and gone. On the one hand, Fred Hubbell claims to be a supporter of the Second Amendment, using some of the same talking points that moderate Democrats across that country use at election time. That said, in his primary,

Stand With Us and Pick Up Free Second Amendment Gear!

Gun Control on Steroids!

‘Gun owners in Iowa need to sit up and realize that it’s not the Fall of 2016 anymore, and they have lost the momentum in the fight for the Second Amendment.’ This is what a long-time political consultant in Iowa told me in a meeting late this week, after watching clips from the recent democratic gubernatorial primary. And honestly, he’s mostly right. You see, in the fall of 2016, Iowa

Constitutional Carry on the Move!

Last week, Constitutional Carry passed the House by a vote of 59-28! Last night, it passed the Senate by a vote of 33-9 and is now on the Governor’s desk. Insiders tell us she is likely to sign the bill — making Oklahoma the 14th Constitutional Carry state! That’s right, this expansion of Second Amendment freedom is playing out in nearby Oklahoma, not Iowa. Here in Iowa, as we enter

In case you missed it, Iowa House Speaker Pro-Tem Matt Windshitl recently announced during an Iowa Press TV interview, that he’s working to cobble

Help Us Stop ‘Red Flag Orders’ Gun Control!

My jaw about hit the floor when I watched his interview on Iowa Press just last week. . . You see, under the leadership of House Speaker Pro Team Matt Windschitl (R-Harrison County,) House leadership has all but KILLED any hope for Constitutional Carry this session. Worse, in his Iowa Press TV interview, Windschitl is now talking about moving gun confiscation legislation, called “red flag order!” Of course, I knew

Iowa Gubernatorial Candidate Wants to Disarm You!

While the 2018 legislative session is winding down, election season here in Iowa is starting to heat up. And I have to tell you, the tide has been shifting here in Iowa since the Parkland, FL shooting from two months ago — and not for the better. Don’t take my word for it. For the first time here in Iowa we are seeing organized marches where anti-gun lawmakers and activists
