Constitutional Carry

They Want to Crush Your Gun Rights and They Want Your Money!

Like most of you, I came home from work Tuesday evening and started skimming over the mail that my kids had placed on our kitchen table earlier in the day. Thankfully, my wife had already grabbed the bills so I didn’t have to deal with that –- but one letter caught my eye in particular. It was a fundraising letter sent to me by my Sheriff, on behalf of the

Stand Your Ground Law Clears the Iowa House - At a Cost!

Yesterday afternoon the Iowa House passed Stand-Your-Ground law by a vote of 58-39! Even better, after your calls and emails into the House leadership team, they put both criminal and civil immunity language back into this bill via a floor amendment! Thank you so much for calling and emailing them — it made all the difference! This means that unless there is probable cause to believe that you violated Iowa’s

Major Developments on Stand-Your-Ground Law!

It’s been a long time coming, but we’re on the verge of making some major progress for the Second Amendment here in Iowa! This is going to be a lengthy email – there are a lot of things you need to know about. After hearing from legions of gun owners over the Stand-Your-Ground law issue, Senator Brad Zaun has informed Senator Bertrand that he’ll be advancing Stand-Your-Ground law in a

Constitutional Carry Ready for Cosponsors in the Senate!

With Stand-Your-Ground having been filed and sent into the committee process, we have some time to push for cosponsors to our Constitutional Carry legislation! And there’s never been a better time to make this push. In 2009, Iowa Gun Owners was founded out of the frustration of hundreds of thousands of gun owners who were being denied the right to carry by their anti-gun sheriffs. Our major legislative push was

Gun Show(s) This Weekend!

As the fight over Stand-Your-Ground law heats up, Iowa Gun Owners is attending as many gun shows as possible to get as many gun owners as possible involved! Gun shows are a great way for you to get involved in IGO and the fight to advance pro-gun legislation this year. It’s critical that our grassroots army continue to expand, as nothing as substantive as Stand-Your-Ground or Constitutional Carry ever passes

Dangerous Trend in Des Moines!

Due to a scheduling conflict last week, Stand-Your-Ground legislation wasn’t filed last Thursday, but will be filed today instead. That means you have one last chance to contact the members below who have not yet cosponsored this legislation but have promised to do so or have done so in the past. It’s critical that you do. Gun owners fought tooth and nail to secure a pro-gun majority in the Iowa

The Stand-Your-Ground Fight is Heating Up!

EVERYONE in the Capitol is talking about the 23 State Senators who have gone on record by cosponsoring Stand-Your-Ground law — and about the ones who have not. Of course, gun owners statewide know that it was the Stand-Your-Ground and Constitutional Carry battles of the last few years that cost anti-gunners control of the Senate in the first place. Gun owners, from all over the state, sent a resounding message

Gun Control in the Iowa Legislature!

Iowa State Representative Ako Abdul-Samad never learns, and neither do his anti-gun friends in Des Moines! Despite the absolutely crushing defeat that anti-gun legislators took at the polls last November, Rep. Samad is ‘doubling down’ on his attempts to pass gun control here in Iowa. I hope you’ll help me send a message to the gun-control crowd in Des Moines that gun owners didn’t fall asleep the day after the

Stand-Your-Ground Law is Ready for Co-Sponsors!

Since the day that Steve Sodders and Mike Gronstal were bounced out of the Iowa Senate, we’ve been focused on two issues: Stand-Your-Ground law and Constitutional Carry. Stopped just two votes short of passage in the anti-gun State Senate for the past two years, Stand-Your-Ground law died on the vine despite a massive grassroots push. That’s why I’m pleased to announce that Stand-Your-Ground law is redrafted and is now ready

Stand-Your-Ground Law is Heating Up!

With the Iowa General Assembly now in session, gun-grabbers are doing everything they can to derail ANY action on pro-gun bills. They know their backs are against the wall. They know — after the shellacking they took in the 2016 elections and the new majorities in Des Moines — they can no longer count on gun-grabbers like Senate Majority Leader Mike Gronstal to simply sweep pro-gun bills under the rug
