If you care about the Second Amendment, then your State Representative needs to hear from you immediately!
You see, Constitutional Carry is moving in the Iowa Senate. The bill (SF165) has fifteen cosponsors and has already passed a critical sub-committee.
In fact, the bill will likely be voted on as early as this week, as Senate leaders are fighting for gun owners.
Sadly, that’s where the good news ends.
That’s because Constitutional Carry is meeting with fierce resistance in the Iowa House, where leadership members are doing everything they can to block advancement of this bill.
And, at the moment, that includes your State Representative, Linda Upmeyer, who seems bent on killing the Constitutional Carry legislation (HF 118) we’ve had introduced in the Iowa House!
As the Speaker of the House, Rep. Upmeyer has complete control over what legislation passes through the Iowa House, and what legislation dies in her hand-picked committee.
And based on the emails that Speaker Upmeyer has been sending to gun owners in her district, it’s clear that she is bent on trying to kill this legislation.
Worse, she has made it clear that she wants to hold this bill back for at least 4 more years!
That’s why I hope you’ll contact Representative Upmeyer right away, using the information that I will provide below!
It’s urgent that you do.
Constitutional Carry is already law in fourteen states (almost 1/3 of the country) — including two contiguous states, Missouri and South Dakota.
And it is very likely that the same bill will pass in Oklahoma as well, this coming week!
Here in Iowa, where gun owners have retired dozens of lawmakers who have opposed this legislation, Constitutional Carry is the hottest issue in state politics.
But that will all come to nothing if Speaker Upmeyer continues to blockade this bill. So please contact her immediately, using the information provided below!
>>> To call Rep. Upmeyer during the work week, please call
Representative Upmeyer is YOUR representative in Des Moines, meaning she works for you!
I can already tell you that Rep. Upmeyer will likely lash out at Iowa Gun Owners with some version of ‘they are liars, nobody in Des Moines likes them, you should be careful listening to them’ or something like that.
That’s because Representative Upmeyer HATES being held accountable for her actions and is desperately trying to say whatever she can to divert pressure!
Please don’t let her get away with it.
The Iowa House already lost 5 seats last November, leaving Republicans with a slim majority in Des Moines. We have no idea how much longer we will have the votes to pass this bill — which is why Representative Upmeyer needs to act now!
So please take action right away, using the information provided above.
Then, when you’re done, please send this email to every gun owner you know in your community, and urge them to take action, too!
