The Next Step in the Fight for the Second Amendment!

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

You hear the unmistakable sound of footsteps close behind you, as you approach your car. Is he looking for spare change, or another victim to rape or murder? The good news is, you’re armed, you’re trained, and you’re ready to do whatever it takes to protect both yourself and your family . . .
