Chuck Grassley NEEDS to Hear from You!

Just days ago, a hero in Texas used his AR-15 to shoot and wound a madman who was killing dozens of people in a church with his own AR-15. The case highlights the fact that guns are just tools, as good or evil as the person holding it. But never one to waste a tragedy, the anti-gun left is seizing on the Vegas and Texas shootings as a way to

A Gun Without Ammo!

Most of us have taken the time to seek out training in the safe and effective use of our firearms, so that should the need arise, we know how to defend our family. We owe our family nothing less. In the same way, we owe it to our children and grandchildren to be able to defend their future gun rights by being trained in how to defend them in Des

Pulling Back the Curtain on the Stand-Your-Ground Fight in Iowa!

You have just two days. In two days, the ‘early bird’ pricing for our upcoming Political Leadership School being held in West Des Moines ends. If you haven’t signed up yet, but have been meaning too, do it right now! But let me warn you: this school isn’t for people who want to schmooze politicians and convince themselves that they are being effective. It’s not a school for people who

I Hope You Can Attend This Training!

As we prepare for the 2018 legislative session, I know that the folks at Iowa Gun Owners are already hard at work preparing for an all-out push on Constitutional Carry legislation. Having been in the Senate for seven years now, I can tell you that I’ve never seen a grassroots organization with more effective members than Iowa Gun Owners. The results speak for themselves. Numerous gun control bills blocked. Their

VIDEO UPDATE on Gun Control Bill in D.C.

As the demands for gun control continue to mount in the wake of the Las Vegas shooting, members of the Iowa Congressional delegation are beginning to give in to the pressure. That’s why we’ve prepared this video update for you. Please take a moment to watch this video now! When you’re done, please do four things right away. >>> First, share this video with all of your pro-gun friends and

You Are Invited!

As a member of Iowa Gun Owners, you’ve had a front row seat and played a direct role in defending and expanding our gun rights over the years. You know that when we passed Stand-Your-Ground law this year as part of the biggest gun rights bill in Iowa history — that didn’t happen because of the good graces of the legislature. Rather, it happened only after gun owners bulldozed the

We're Not Giving An Inch!

It’s been over a week since a madman launched a deadly attack in Las Vegas that killed and wounded hundreds of people. An Iowa mother, who went to high school just miles from where I grew up, was amoungst the dead. The pictures and videos that have emerged from that night are difficult to watch and even more difficult to understand –- and compounded by the fact that we may

We're Giving Away Six Glocks!

“Mike Gronstal loses his re-election!” This was the shot heard around the state last November as mobilized gun owners threw Gronstal out of office over his blockade of the pro-gun legislation. Of course, Mike Gronstal wasn’t the only legislator that Iowa Gun Owners worked so hard to expose with TV and radio ads, mail, slicks, social media efforts and more. In all, six of six Iowa Senate incumbents were bounced

Texas Says "Thank You!"

“You tell everyone in Iowa thank you, from the people of Texas!” That was the refrain I heard every day when I was in Texas with a group of Iowans last week, during flood relief after Hurricane Harvey. When we arrived, it had been three weeks since the storm ravaged the Houston metro and it’s over 2 million people, meaning that everyone was exhausted and in desperate need of a

Major Fight Coming Over Constitutional Carry!

Politicians listen to one thing — political pressure in their districts. Anyone who tells you otherwise, especially if it’s your local legislator, is naïve or trying to sell you something. We’ve seen this time and time again, most recently in our fight to advance Stand-Your-Ground law: grassroots pressure works! That’s why, during the summer and fall months before the 2018 legislative session, Iowa Gun Owners is working overtime trying to
