2017 Gun Rights Legislative Wrap Up - Part 1

As the dust settles on the close of the 2017 legislative session, it’s a great time to look back and see what was accomplished in our fight to defend the Second Amendment here in Iowa. Obviously, we completed a six-year battle to pass Stand-Your-Ground law and a whole lot more — but that didn’t just happen on its own! In this three part series, we’re going to review the 2017

Stand-Your-Ground Law Clears the Senate!

BOOM!!!!! Moments ago, Stand-Your-Ground law passed through the Iowa Senate by a vote of 33-17, thanks to an avalanche of calls and emails from you! What’s more, despite the efforts of many legislators, it passed with NO weakening amendments. That means that not only did we get Stand-Your-Ground legislation, but also: >>>  Removal of the ridiculous law that makes it a crime for parents and grandparents to decide when to

Multiple Gun Shows Happening Today in Iowa!

I just wanted to take a moment to remind you that Iowa Gun Owners will be at two gun shows today in opposite parts of the state. If you live in the NE part of Iowa, come out and see us at the gun show in Waterloo! We’re at the Cattle Congress building and we’re here until 5pm! If you’re in Western Iowa, we’ll be at the Sheldon Armory until

Why is Senator Brad Zaun Opposing Stand-Your-Ground Law for Iowans?

There must be something in the Senate Judiciary Chairman’s gavel. From 2009 – 2010, former Judiciary Chairman Keith Kreiman refused to advance Stand-Your-Ground law. So Iowa Gun Owners did what we do best and exposed him in his district at election time — and gun owners threw Kreiman out of office as a result! For the next few years, it was Senator Steve Sodders. Sodders infamously blocked Stand-Your-Ground as the

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

Gun Control Introduced 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

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
