I’m not sure I’ve ever seen the gun-grabbers’ allies here in Iowa so brazenly radical . . .
Not long ago, their main objectives were primarily derailing Constitutional Carry and Stand-Your-Ground while mouthing support for “common sense gun safety.”
Of course, you and I both know Michael Bloomberg’s pals here in Iowa have never really been as “harmless” to our Second Amendment freedoms as they want you and me to believe.
But now — in the wake of the Parkland, Florida and Santa Fe, Texas shootings — they’re more emboldened than ever.
They believe the political winds are blowing their way.
So they’re not even bothering to hide the radical future they have planned for Iowa should they succeed in seizing control of one house of our General Assembly and our Governorship!
That’s why, with the June primaries come and gone and the countdown on to November, I’m counting on your IMMEDIATE help and support.
Will you please agree to a generous contribution right away in support of Iowa Gun Owners’ 2018 election year programs? More on that below.
With BILLIONAIRE anti-gun activist Michael Bloomberg ready to UNLOAD his campaign war chest, I fear for the worst this election year if I can’t count on the early and generous financial support from good folks like you.
If the anti-gun “blue wave” that media elites have been touting for months materializes in Iowa this November, our backs are going to be against the wall.
Constitutional Carry will be dead. Stand-Your-Ground and even Shall Issue law will be on the chopping block.
But I’m afraid the gun-grabbers won’t even stop there. As I mentioned, more anti-gun candidates than ever are unabashedly campaigning on anti-gun schemes like:
We all know of horror stories where a young woman, patiently waiting for the government to allow her to buy a gun, was raped and murdered by a psycho who didn’t wait for her to be able to buy a gun;
*** So-called “Universal Background Checks.” As you well know, this is nothing more than code for STATEWIDE GUN REGISTRATION. As a former cop, I can tell you that the ONLY way the government can enforce such a scheme is to keep tabs on every gun and gun owner in the state!
And as you know, registration is just the first step toward outright CONFISCATION;
*** A so-called “Assault Weapons Ban.” There’s no firearm the gun-grabbers love to demonize more than the AR-15, which many law-abiding Americans legally own and enjoy.
But don’t think for a second their scheme will stop there. Instead, it will target any semi-automatic firearm that looks “scary,” including pistols, shotguns and rifles — many commonly used for hunting!
Nor would this be the first-time gun-grabbers in Iowa have tried this, as former State Representative Dan Muhlbauer has previously called for a house to house confiscation of ALL SEMI-AUTOMATIC firearms in the state!
The good news is, Iowa Gun Owners’ members and supporters can stop this train wreck from happening.
In fact, we’re likely the only group of people here in Iowa who can. As the saying goes, “It’s not bragging if you can back it up.”
Over the past few years, we’ve built arguably the hardest hitting and most effective election year program in the state.
There’s certainly no shortage of politicians who have watched their careers go up in smoke after crossing Iowa’s Second Amendment supporters, including:
>>> Senate Majority Leader Mike Gronstal (D-Pottawattamie County) who went down to a shocking defeat in 2016 after over 30 years of blocking the Second Amendment rights of law abiding Iowans!
>>> Senate Judiciary Chairman Steve Sodders (D-Tama) who used his power to stonewall any action on
Constitutional Carry or Stand-Your-Ground and paid the price for it with a shocking election loss in 2016;
>>> State Senator Darryl Beall (D-Fort Dodge) who was Michael Bloomberg’s right-hand man in Iowa, who relentlessly pushed for so-called “Universal Background Checks” (STATEWIDE GUN REGISTRATION). He was defeated in 2014 after a massive IGO election year program.
The truth is, I could go on and on with stories of successes you and I have achieved together. But I’ll just sum it up by saying you’ve seen your contributions to Iowa Gun Owners make a difference. A BIG difference.
And that’s true whether we’re talking about passing legislation (like the Pro-Gun Omnibus Bill, which included Stand-Your-Ground), or holding anti-gun politicians accountable.
I know the media is predicting doom for Second Amendment supporters in November.
But I believe we can send their jaws dropping once again if we’re willing to FIGHT.
Of course, you know I’m ready to start swinging. I’m writing today to see if you’ll help me gang up on a few anti-gun politicians.
The truth is, there’s so many races where IGO members and supporters can make the difference. For example:
*** Defensively, there’s Senate District 19 where GOP State Senator Jack Whitver is facing off against Democrat Amber Gustafson. Senator Whitver has voted for Stand-Your-Ground and has pledged 100% support for Constitutional Carry. Meanwhile, Amber Gustafson is the state leader for Mom’s Demand Action, one of Bloomberg’s gun control groups!
*** Offensively, there’s Senate District 39 where anti-gun Democrat incumbent Kevin Kinney is facing off against a pro-gun challenger. State Senator Kinney voted against Stand-Your-Ground and is a loud opponent of Constitutional Carry.
Of course, I could probably list off at least a dozen more in both the House and Senate.
With your help, my goal is to ensure every IGO supporter knows exactly where their candidates stand on passage of new control schemes and pro-gun reforms like Constitutional Carry.
Using everything from hard-hitting mail and email, to Internet, radio and newspaper ads, I won’t pull any punches.
But such a program isn’t cheap — and I don’t have the tens of thousands of dollars lying around in the bank that it will take to fund it all.
I know it seems “early.” But the early bird gets the worm in politics.
Some experts say every early dollar is worth $3-$5 raised later on when it’s more difficult to break through the election “noise.”
I know that’s a lot. But as I told you, I’m behind where I need to be to put Iowa Gun Owners’ full election year plan into action.
If it’s just too much, please agree to $50 or at least $25.
We’ve come so far over the past few years standing and fighting together. But the clock is ticking to November. Now is the time to act.
P.S. The gun-grabbers aren’t even bothering to hide the radical future they have planned for Iowa should they succeed in seizing control of part of our legislature and our Governorship!
The good news is, you and I have built one of the hardest hitting and most effective election year programs in the state, and everyone knows it.
If we can raise the resources in 2018, I’m hopeful we can not only turn back this disaster, but that we can send the gun-grabbers and their media pals home!
