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

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.

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

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 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

Video Update from the Capitol!
