The city fathers in North Liberty, IA, are hoping that you do not read this email.
They are desperately trying to hammer through a sweeping gun ban on city property during TOMORROW NIGHT’S council meeting with no one finding out, the third such attempted local gun ban in the state in the last couple of months!
They are trying to sneak this gun ban through tomorrow, hoping that your attention this week will be on Thanksgiving, family, and friends.
But I am asking you to step up and make your voices heard in advance on the council meeting that will take place TOMORROW NIGHT where the council intends to vote on yet another gun ban.
These gun bans are happening with regularity right now. It would appear that a statewide organization is trying to coordinate these. We’ll keep you informed on that later.
For today: here’s what’s going on.
North Liberty already has some sort of gun ban in place. They already disarm law abiding citizens on certain properties.
Now, they want you disarmed on even more properties, and this proposal is on the agenda for a vote during their meeting in just over 24 hours.
We are unable to tell you the exact extent of this proposed ban as they simply won’t tell us.
We’ve called and left multiple messages with the city, who have decided not to communicate back with us.
But we’re getting notifications from multiple sources in and around North Liberty that this proposal would crack down on your right of self-defense on ALL city property.
Of course, there is no such thing as “city property.”
It’s the taxpayers of North Liberty, many of whom are law abiding gun owners, whose tax dollars build and maintain these city properties that the council is trying to turn into safe havens for violent criminals.
This is simply outrageous!
Almost daily we’re seeing what happens when arrogant legislators decide to leave you and me disarmed and helpless when we’re out in public.
Consider the following:
- 130 people were killed by rifle fire and grenades in Paris last week, in a city where law abiding citizens are prohibited from owning defensive arms;
- 9 people were murdered and 7 more wounded in a community college in Oregon just last month, in a “gun free” zone;
- 9 more gunned down in a church in South Carolina, this past June, in a state where legislators have said that it’s against the law for good guys to carry a firearm for self-defense in churches;
- 5 members of the military were gunned down in cold blood in Chattanooga, Tennessee, in July – because the government wouldn’t let them have the means of self-defense.
Should someone be tempted to say, “Well, these things don’t happen in Iowa,” they would be wrong.
Less than 5 miles away from North Liberty, in Coralville, at the Mall, a thug with a gun walked inside the mall, right past the “No Guns Allowed” signs that blanket the property, and shot a young woman multiple times in the back, killing her!
It’s clear: gun free zones are killing us!
In light of this overwhelming evidence, and in light of Iowa common sense, North Liberty is now hell-bent on leaving even more Iowans helpless in the event of a violent criminal attack.
I don’t know about you, but these heavy-handed attacks on our way of life make me downright mad!
Even more so, because these attacks on our gun rights are illegal! That’s because Iowa code 724.28 says:
“A political subdivision of the state shall not enact an ordinance regulating the ownership, possession, legal transfer, lawful transportation, registration, or licensing of firearms when the ownership, possession, transfer, or transportation is otherwise lawful under the laws of this state.”
We’ve been asked why the Attorney General’s office in Iowa doesn’t prosecute these clear cut violations of law. The truth is that he’s encouraging them.
That’s right, Tom Miller is proud of his anti-gun stance and has told cities and counties, in writing, to violate Iowa code at will.
So it’s up to you and me!
That’s why I need you to contact the members of the North Liberty City Council IMMEDIATELY, and demand that they vote down this ridiculous proposal before any more Iowans pay the ultimate price.

Make sure they know what you think about this unconstitutional, illegal, and dangerous proposal that will continue to endanger the lives of law abiding Iowans – tell them to VOTE NO!
Remember, this doesn’t only apply to people who live in North Liberty, or even Eastern Iowa.
These radical anti-gunners, likely being pushed by an organized force that we’ll be telling you about later, are all watching to see what you and I will do in North Liberty.
With no resistance, I can assure you that many more cities and counties will move similar ordinances – leaving you and I defenseless in more and more communities.
You and I have stood tall and stopped gun bans all over Iowa in the last few years.
Gun owners in Dubuque, West Chester, George, Tama, Kalona, Nevada, Winnebago Co., and many more, have all stopped attacks on their rights with the help of gun owners all over Iowa.
Now, gun owners in North Liberty are asking for your help.
Let’s not let them down. Please make your calls and send your emails TODAY.
It takes money to be able to deploy statewide emails, send field staff to the area to pass out fliers to alert local gun owners, run targeted social media, and more.
We’ve used up more than our budgeted amount for the 4th quarter dealing with gun bans in Kalona, Winnebago Co., and one more that we’re still doing our due diligence on.
But whatever you do, please make your calls and send your emails today – that’s most important!
P.S. After seeing hundreds of people murdered in so-called Gun Free Zones this year alone, gun-grabbers in North Liberty, IA, are trying to sneak through an ordinance to disarmed all law abiding people in “their” town TOMORROW NIGHT!
You’ve stood tall for the 2nd Amendment and stopped gun bans all over Iowa over the last 18 months.
Now, gun owners in North Liberty are asking for your help. Please call and email the City Council members using the information listed above right away.
Remember, gun grabbers all over Iowa are just waiting for the right time to ram their own version of these gun bans through – if you and I don’t fight them tooth-and-nail, it may be your town next.
So wherever you live, call and email these council members right away and then forward this to all of your pro-gun friends.
