Stand Your Ground

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

Mike Gronstal is Gone!

Thirty two years! Mike Gronstal has been in office and voting against your Second Amendment rights off and on for thirty two years! Well, seeing him vote NO on Constitutional Carry, block Stand-Your-Ground law, and work to undermine our gun rights for decades, gun owners in Council Bluffs had enough and booted Gronstal from office tonight in perhaps the biggest upset of the evening! Honestly, I’m stunned. Sure we worked

Iowa: Just Two Weeks Left!

I know that we’ve been putting alerts in your inbox around the clock over the last couple of weeks, as we enter the final 2 week phase of the 2016 election season.

Every weekend for the last month, I’ve been privileged to leads teams of IGO volunteers as we go

Anti-Gun Legislators Desperately Trying to Stop Stand-Your-Ground Law!

Last week was a busy one in the Iowa Capitol as more and more legislators felt the pressure from gun owners in Iowa to take action on SF137/HF52 – the Iowa Stand Your Ground law. The shameful treatment of Hurl Beechum, out of Glenwood, IA, is a stark reminder to legislators of what can happen to gun owners who are forced to use their firearm in self-defense when an anti-gun

Dreadful Anti-Gun Additions to Omnibus Gun Bill - Help Us Stop It!

I really wish it hadn’t come to this. The fight for gun rights has taken a devious and nasty turn here in Des Moines and I need you to read this email and take immediate action to help us stop a wolf in sheep’s clothing – before it devours your gun rights.

Iowa: Stand Your Ground Blocked by Senate Leadership!

It all comes down to control of the Iowa Senate. Yesterday, your right to bear arms suffered a blow because the radical anti-gunners who control the Senate, Majority leader Mike Gronstal and President Pro-Tem Steve Sodders, are terrified of allowing a vote on Stand-Your-Ground legislation. It’s simple. They have members of their caucus who would support this legislation and many who would not. Some of those who would vote no

Gun Vote Likely Coming Today in Iowa Senate!

This is time sensitive! There are likely votes coming today so please take a moment to read this and take immediate action! As you know, for months now the Iowa Senate has been blocking Stand-Your-Ground (SF137) and Constitutional Carry (SF400) legislation from moving forward in the Senate Judiciary Committee.

Iowa: Senate Leadership DETERMINED to Kill Multiple Pro-Gun Bills!

“Kansas lawmakers approve concealed carry without permit!” March 25, 2015 “New Hampshire State Senate has passed a bill to repeal the license requirement for carrying a concealed handgun.” February 22, 2015 “Constitutional carry, or permitless carry, has passed the West Virginia Senate with an astonishing 32 to 2 vote.” February 28, 2015 When Iowa Gun Owners first began to push for Constitutional Carry in 2009, people said we were nuts.

Insider Games and Fear at the Capitol in Des Moines

“No one wants to be the next Daryl Beall.” That’s what one capitol insider reported to me in the Capitol this week as gun bills began to move through the House and Senate Committees. Anti-gun legislators are scared. They should be. In 2014, many of them were removed from office after Iowa Gun Owners revealed the truth about their hostility towards the 2nd Amendment. Daryl Beall, a long time anti-gun
