The end of the year is right around the corner, and the legislature will reconvene in just a few weeks. But we still haven’t received your membership renewal for 2022!
If you’ve already renewed your support online or through the mail — and our records just haven’t updated fast enough — I hope you’ll accept my apologies for this unnecessary reminder.
But if you haven’t had the time to renew your membership for 2022, I hope that you’ll take a moment to do so IMMEDIATELY, as Joe Biden’s first two Executive Orders that attack our gun rights are just about to be finalized!
Biden’s legislative gun control agenda has been stalled in Congress for the moment. That could change in the blink of an eye, especially if we — God forbid — see another mass shooting in 2022. But for the moment, our grassroots pressure is working.
But grassroots pressure in Congress will not stop Biden’s Executive Orders, which are designed to make criminals out of law-abiding gun owners like you and me!
Biden’s first unconstitutional Executive Order would make FELONS out of gun owners who have unregistered firearms that they made themselves. Known as ‘80% lowers,’ these firearms are wildly popular with gun owners who enjoy making everything from Colt 1911’s to Ruger 10/22’s in their own homes.
The second order, which will likely take effect in early 2022, would make FELONS out of anyone who owns a pistol brace!
Pistol braces were designed for disabled shooters who can’t lift a full-sized rifle anymore, but who can handle a pistol. Attaching a pistol brace around the handgun makes it far more controllable and safer for any gun owner to operate.
Banning pistol braces and registering ‘80% lower’ firearms has absolutely nothing to do with stopping violent crime. These orders exist exclusively to allow our tyrannical government to have more ways to criminalize law abiding gun owners!
And make no mistake, these orders are just the beginning.
That’s why Iowa Gun Owners is going ‘all in’ on the Second Amendment Preservation Act (SAPA) next year in Des Moines. Please help us with this fight by renewing your membership for 2022 today!
IGO’s Second Amendment Preservation Act is very different. Once SAPA law is passed, Iowa’s troopers, deputies, and city officers would be instructed to only enforce Iowa laws pertaining to firearms, ammo, and accessories.
In other words, SAPA law would mean that Iowa cops wouldn’t lift a finger to enforce federal gun laws (or Executive Orders) anymore.
And since the federal government relies on state and local authorities to enforce the vast majority of their laws and Executive Orders, the Second Amendment Preservation Act would effectively STOP Biden’s war on gun owners here in Iowa!
In fact, SAPA law is ALREADY protecting gun owners in Missouri!
You see, earlier this year our sister organization in Missouri enacted SAPA legislation. And while anti-gun mayors in liberal cities like St. Louis and Kansas City were livid about it, they had to order their police departments to stop enforcing federal gun laws.
That’s because Missouri’s SAPA law, just like the legislation we are pushing in Des Moines, has real teeth.
If the St. Louis police department violates Missouri’s SAPA law and enforces Biden’s Executive Orders banning pistol braces, for example, their agency can be sued in civil court by the gun owner involved. And the minimum fine — per occurrence — is $50,000!
Sure, it makes some big city police chiefs furious. But the truth is that while Iowa’s law enforcement community is very pro-gun at an individual level, as a political entity, they are not.
Law enforcement lobbyists fought against ‘Shall Issue’ for a decade; they opposed Stand-Your-Ground law until we passed it in 2017, and they fought us on Constitutional Carry for years! Clearly any SAPA law that passes without teeth would simply be ignored.
Biden and his handlers know that if SAPA spreads across the country, their dreams of bypassing Congress and attacking our Second Amendment rights through Executive Orders will evaporate!
That’s why the Department of InJustice tried to overturn SAPA in court just last month. But the judge in the case laughed them out of the courtroom because the Supreme Court has always held that the states have an absolute right to decide what’s in the best interests of its citizens.
The radical left can cry foul all they want, but their Democrat-run cities and states did the same thing to President Trump when he tried to get their help in deporting violent, illegal aliens.
If the left was able to assert states’ right to ignore the federal government and protect illegal aliens charged with rape and murder, then Iowa damn sure can assert our sovereignty and protect Iowans who are being threatened with tyrannical gun control edicts!
But passing SAPA is going to be a fight. We all know that. Help us win this fight by renewing your membership in IGO right away!
You see, a rational President would look at the results of the Virginia elections last month and realize that the American people are furious. And he would acknowledge that without a course correction, his party will be crushed in the 2022 midterm elections.
But Joe Biden is not a rational President.
He’s a cultural Marxist who is hell-bent on destroying this country. So rather than retreat from his far-left ideology, Biden has made it clear that he’s going to be doing everything he can to pass gun control in 2022, while his party still controls Congress!
There are three primary gun control bills that Biden is going ‘all in’ on next year that demand our complete attention. They are:
1. The ‘assault weapons ban’ (S.736/H.R. 1808) — which would make it a felony for anyone in America to buy an AR-15 or any one of over 200 similar rifles and shotguns!
These firearms stand guard against criminals and tyrants in the homes of approximately 20 million American citizens, a final check on a tyrannical government. If we lose these firearms, the American people will become sitting ducks.
2. A ‘national firearms registry’ (S. 529/H.R. 8) -– which would make felons out of anyone who transfers a firearm to another person without obtaining government permission and putting that transfer into a federal government database!
There’s only one reason why the federal government would want a database of gun owners, and we all know what that is. This bill has already passed the House with bi-partisan support and is building support in the Senate.
3.‘Red Flag Gun Seizure’ legislation (S. 1819/H.R. 2377) –- which would absolutely destroy the Second Amendment in this country by letting liberal judges order the confiscation of your firearms before you’ve been convicted of a crime!
As you may know, these court hearings happen in total secrecy. You would not be given the chance to defend your name until it’s all over, after your guns have been seized.
Passing any one of these bills would deal a crushing blow to the freedoms of the American people and pave the road for flat out gun confiscation in the years to come.
And if passing these bills into law costs Biden control of Congress in 2022, that’s a price that the Left is willing to pay — just like they did in 2010 with ObamaCare — as part of their long-term strategy to disarm and subjugate the American people.
That’s why it’s essential that Iowa Gun Owners continue to FLOOD Senators Grassley and Ernst (along with our Congressional delegation) with calls and emails from gun owners across the state, so they know that we don’t want them to make any deals with Biden on gun control!
This won’t just happen on its own.
IGO needs to roll out a massive direct mail program, increase the size of our email mobilization efforts, and run the most aggressive radio/digital ads we can possibly produce to make sure that our representatives in D.C. understand what we expect of them.
Help us fight, renew your membership NOW!
And if giving us the resources we need to hold the line on Joe Biden’s attempt to crush our Second Amendment rights isn’t enough to get you to renew your membership, don’t forget about the critical 2022 elections that are already coming into focus here in Iowa.
Most gun rights organizations beg politicians to do the right thing during the legislative season, and then just mope on the sidelines if the politicians ignore them and vote for gun control.
Not Iowa Gun Owners.
The reason why we’ve made such progress here in Iowa in the fight for freedom over the last thirteen years is because the politicians in Des Moines — and in Washington — know that IGO loves to expose gun-grabbers in targeted districts at election time!
And 2022 is going to be a jam-packed election cycle with the Governor’s mansion, every seat in the Iowa House, and half of the Iowa Senate up for grabs.
Not only that, but gun owners will also have a chance to tell Cindy Axne what we think of her support for Nancy Pelosi’s war on gun owners in Congress. And when you toss in a United States Senate election, it’s clear that 2022 will be an extremely important year.
Iowa Gun Owners MUST continue to do what we’ve done for almost fifteen years now — take the fight for freedom to the enemies’ districts in the fall, making sure they pay the price for every vote they’ve ever cast in support of gun control!
Any way you look it, 2022 is going to be one of the most pivotal years in memory when it comes to our gun rights between fighting for SAPA, holding the line against Biden’s agenda, and making sure we have the resources to expose gun-grabbers during the elections.
But to do any of this, I need to be able to pay for it!
That’s why I hope you’ll renew your membership in Iowa Gun Owners before it expires on December 31st!
The amount of your renewal is entirely up to you. Some Iowans have renewed as Liberty Level members for $35. Others have selected Freedom Level memberships for $75. Some have chosen Patriot Level memberships for $125, and others have become Lifetime members!
The amount of your renewal is up to you, just please act fast!
Your past support of Iowa Gun Owners has enabled us to make massive advancements for freedom that include passing ‘Shall Issue’ law in 2010, Stand-Your-Ground law in 2017, Constitutional Carry earlier this year and a dozen smaller bills along the way!
Not only that, but we’ve crushed every gun control bill that has been filed in Des Moines for over a decade, while exposing the records that gun-grabbers have desperately tried to hide in every election cycle since 2010!
But everything is on the line in 2022. And the actions that we take next year will likely decide if our grandchildren grow up in a country that is still the ‘land of the free’ — or a socialist regime where only the government has guns.
This is it. The fight is upon us. Please continue to stand with us by renewing your membership in Iowa Gun Owners for 2022!
