Constitutional Carry

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

What Is Constitutional Carry?

“I keep hearing about Constitutional Carry – exactly what is it, and how does it restore our Second Amendment Rights?” We get questions like that literally every day from folks, whether they just signed up for our emails, just bought their first firearm or whether they just followed us on our Facebook page. That’s why I thought I’d take a moment here to explain what Constitutional Carry is and why

Video Update from the Capitol!

It’s been a busy week in the Capitol as things really get underway. There are literally dozens of gun bills in draft mode right now, addressing numerous issues that need to be fixed in the Iowa code. Of course, at the top of our list are Stand-Your-Ground law and Constitutional Carry. Every gun owner who carries here in Iowa shares a similar sense of forebode when grabbing their handgun each

Where Should We Fight in 2017?

If you had told me a couple of weeks ago that the Iowa General Assembly would be just days into the 2017 session, and I’d be rushing to write you this emergency letter, I never would have believed it. By any measure, the victories Second Amendment supporters won here in Iowa on November 8 were shocking . . . Today, BOTH houses of the Iowa General Assembly boast pro-gun majorities

Gun Show Next Weekend - Come on Out!

With the session underway here in Des Moines, the fight to advance Stand-Your-Ground and Constitutional Carry legislation is in full swing. And while we work in the Capitol to advance this legislation, it’s important that we continue to mobilize as many gun owners as possible. That’s why Iowa Gun Owners will be coming to the Fort Dodge Gun Show next weekend — to get as many gun owners involved in

The 2017 Legislative Session is Underway!

Moments ago, the gavel fell on the start of the 2017 legislative session. The time to fight for passage of Constitutional Carry and Stand-Your-Ground law begins now! Gun owners were one of the loudest, if not the loudest, issue groups to pound the pavement in support of pro-gun candidates last fall. Gun owners donated tons of money to pro-gun candidates, as well. And, of course, you were generous with Iowa

We're Right on the Edge!

A lot has happened over the last few months here in Iowa in the fight to defend the Second Amendment. With so much going on, and with so many new gun owners joining our ranks, please read this overview of where we stand as the legislature convenes in just four days — then take action! Backdrop: No legislative year in the Capitol occurs in a vacuum, but rather as a

The Fight Starts in 6 Days!

For eight long years, we’ve fought against an aggressive anti-gun Senate caucus that has killed major pro-gun legislation. They’ve blocked Stand-Your-Ground law, Constitutional Carry, and almost a dozen other bills from becoming law here in Iowa. During that same time, many nearby states have left us behind in the fight for the Second Amendment. Missouri passed Stand-Your-Ground and Constitutional Carry law in 2016, so did West Virginia, Mississippi, and Idaho.

Are You Ready to Fight for the Second Amendment in 2017?

Just over a month ago, gun owners unceremoniously booted every single anti-gun legislator who was up for re-election in the Iowa Senate out of office. Mike Gronstal, gone. Steve Sodders, gone. Mary Jo Wilhelm, gone. Brian Schoenjahn, Chris Brase, Thomas Courtney — all gone. It was a fantastic night, and absolutely necessary, as it was those legislators who were directly responsible for crushing Stand-Your-Ground and Constitutional Carry legislation.Now, for the

Renew Your Support in the 2nd Amendment for 2017!

On November 8, 2016, the people of this country set off the equivalent of a political nuclear bomb in America. As the results poured in, sneering elitists in the press saw their predictions of a Hillary Clinton presidency proved wrong. And gun-grabbers’ heads all over this great nation — including right here in Iowa — soon began exploding. I know you’re aware of what happened nationally. But the results here
