Sit Down and Be Quiet, the Adults Will Handle This!

“Sit down and be quiet, the adults will handle this,” –- that’s the message coming out of Senate Judiciary Chairman Brad Zaun right now here in Des Moines. With the legislature about to gavel in here for the week, I hope you’ll take a moment to contact Senator Zaun right away and urge him to support SF 262, Stand-Your-Ground law for Iowa! You see, there’s an old game in Des

Rep. Ako Abdul Samad Files More Aggressive Gun Control!

Can you imagine being sentenced to 5 YEARS in prison and paying a fine of $7,500 all for giving your grandson a Ruger 10/22 with one of the common 30-round mags that almost all of us own? Unbelievable, right? But that’s exactly what the latest round of gun control coming out of the House would do, if the sponsor, Rep. Ako Abdul-Samad has his way! In a moment, I’ll give

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

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

Major Developments on Stand-Your-Ground Legislation!

I know that it’s Monday morning and everyone’s still buzzing at the biggest Super Bowl comeback of all time last night, but I need you to read this and take action! As we reported to you last week, Stand-Your-Ground law has been filed by Senator Rick Bertrand and is awaiting cosponsors. We’ve been asking you for some time now via email, Facebook live videos, and direct mail to contact your

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

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
