Joe Biden will likely be the most anti-gun President that America has ever seen. Honestly, that has less to do with Joe Biden and more to do with the people that surround him.
Snarling, snapping, America-hating leftists like Vice President Kamala Harris, Beto O’Rourke, Michael Bloomberg, Senator Mark Kelly and others hate gun owners — and they want to punish us for daring to stand up and fight for our freedom.
They don’t want to tweak our gun rights. They want to obliterate them, because our Second Amendments freedoms are the only thing standing between us and run-away government tyranny!
But while we do everything in our power to hold the line against federal gun control, it’s crucial that we have a PLAN B in case Biden is successful.
That’s why Iowa Gun Owners is working to advance the Second Amendment Preservation Act (SAPA) which would nullify federal gun control laws here in Iowa!
As we’ve said before, SAPA legislation is based on the well-established anti-commandeering doctrine which states that the federal government may not simply ‘commandeer’ the state’s legislative authority and force us to submit to federal laws that conflict with state law.
The idea that the states are separate legal entities that have the right to tell the federal government to pound sand has been upheld by the Supreme Court repeatedly — by conservative and liberal justices alike — going back hundreds of years!
(To learn more about these cases and the history of the anti-commandeering doctrine, go here.)
Once passed, SAPA law would not only give Iowa peace officers the option to ignore federal gun control laws, it would require that they do so. And any government officials who violate SAPA legislation would be subject to civil lawsuits!
The big question, of course, is whether or not the Iowa legislature and Governor Reynolds will pass this legislation and protect gun owners like us.
The exciting thing is that the idea of the Second Amendment Preservation Act is spreading in ‘red states’ all over the country, as gun owners seek to prevent federal attacks on our gun rights!
In Missouri, Senator Eric Burlison and Representative Jered Taylor have already filed this legislation on behalf of our sister organization, the Missouri Firearms Coalition. Last year, long before the threat of Joe Biden was a reality in gun owners minds, SAPA law had 88 cosponsors in the Missouri House!
In Wyoming, Senator Anthony Bouchard, the state’s leading voice for gun owners, is filing SAPA legislation as well. Bouchard helped our sister organization, Wyoming Gun Owners, pass Stand-Your-Ground law in 2018 and is determined to stop federal gun control in his state.
In Minnesota, newly elected Representative Erik Mortensen is quickly making a name for himself by sponsoring SAPA legislation in conjunction with Minnesota Gun Rights, our sister organization to the North.
In Georgia, Representative Philip Singleton is pushing SAPA legislation for Georgia Gun Owners, our sister organization in the South.
And we expect to see SAPA legislation filed and on the move in Pennsylvania and Ohio in the coming days, as well!
The only question left now is which state will be the first one to pass this legislation.
Here in Iowa, gun owners have been THE REASON why the Republicans have obtained and preserved their legislative majorities, despite Bloomberg’s repeated attempts to weaken or topple them.
Gun owners are the reason why Theresa Greenfield is not the junior Senator from Iowa.
And gun owners are the reason why J.D. Scholten and Rita Hart lost their Congressional races, and are the main reason why Abby Finkenauer was booted out of Congress!
So it’s high time that the politicians in Des Moines return the favor to gun owners and pass SAPA legislation, safeguarding our freedoms from Joe Biden and everyone else in Congress who wants to destroy them.
Then please do what you can to help us get the word out about the Second Amendment Preservation Act, by making a donation of any amount, today.
Nothing consequential passes in Des Moines without being pushed.
That means we need to flood the Capitol with calls and emails in support of this legislation.
Your donation, of any amount, will help us do that — so please be generous!
Iowa Gun Owners
P.S. With Joe Biden about to launch a 4-year attack on our gun rights, support for the Second Amendment Preservation Act is spreading across the country!
Thank you, in advance, for helping us advance this critical legislation.
