Fighting for Gun Rights House by House in Iowa!

As Irish parliamentarian Edmund Burke said, “The only thing necessary for the triumph of evil is for good men to do nothing.” That’s certainly true where your gun rights are concerned here in Iowa. There was a time when anti-gun legislators were able to attack our gun rights in Des Moines and then tell gun owners that they were ‘with them’ with no one being the wiser. Thanks to the

One Month Left -- Help Us Expose Anti-Gun Legislators in Iowa!

Last year, Democrats, controlling the House of Representatives in Maine, voted to make Maine a “Constitutional Carry” state. Kansas would go on to join Maine later in 2015, passing their own Constitutional Carry law, and with it, making seven states where Constitutional Carry is now law. Earlier this year, Mississippi, Idaho, and West Virginia all did the same thing. Just a few months ago, in May, our neighbors in Missouri

Iowa: Thank These Pro-Gun Candidates!

As this election season is officially underway, Iowa Gun Owners will be hammering on gun grabbing politicians as hard as we possibly can. As they seek to run from their record of supporting radical gun control, they are going to be confronted by the truth as Iowa Gun Owners floods targeted districts with mail, email, radio ads, social media, and more! They need to pay a price for their attacks

Join Me for Four Hours Next Saturday in Adel to Win A Free Gun!

Often times you hear from us about the anti-gunners in the Iowa legislature who are working around the clock to fundamentally alter our Second Amendment rights by passing gun control. You’ve rallied with us and we stopped former Rep. Dan Muhlbauer’s call for a house-to-house confiscation of all semi-automatic firearms. Together, we ensured that Bloomberg’s push for a Universal Background Check bill (aka Statewide Gun Registry) died on the vine.

What's at Stake in Iowa If We Don't Fight?

I know we’ve been reaching out to you a lot over the last couple of weeks, giving you the facts about where the candidates stand on your right to keep and bear arms, before many of you make decisions on who to support this fall. With early voting becoming an increasingly large segment of the total votes cast, it’s essential that we get this vital information into the hands of

Anti-Gunners Want to Shut Us Down in Advance of the November Elections!

Any day now, I expect a loud knock on our office door. A slick anti-gun government lawyer — armed with trumped-up legal complaints from Michael Bloomberg-backed gun control organizations and their pals in the General Assembly — will be grinning from ear-to-ear as he tells me, “See you in court.” When I first started Iowa Gun Owners I thought things like this didn’t happen in America . . . After

Iowa Legislators Announce Plans to Attack Your Gun Rights in 2016

I just finished working the phone lines with my inside sources in Des Moines. Now, with the next session of the Iowa General Assembly rapidly approaching, I’m bracing for a major fight. Gun-grabbers are loudly threatening to force “Universal Background Checks” (aka STATEWIDE GUN REGISTRATION), so-called “mental health” gun bans, and even GUN CONFISCATION to the top of the General Assembly’s agenda in 2016! Without your support, I’m afraid they

Jeb Bush: Mandatory Waiting Periods, Universal Background Checks, and Mental Health Expansion!

Mandatory waiting periods to buy guns – leaving those who likely need a gun the most, defenseless. Universal background checks – resulting in the government having a complete list of guns and their owners. Mental health expansion laws – designed to seize guns from gun owners on the mere word of one “mental health staffer.” If you watched the Late Show the other night you watched missed seeing one of

Why Did Bloomberg Give Lindsey Graham $250,000?

It’s that season of politics again – when you can hardly go out to eat at a Pizza Ranch without bumping into a Republican Presidential contender seeking your vote and support in our first-in-the-nation caucuses that are scheduled to be held next February. As Iowans, we have a special role to play in determining what candidates emerge as viable contenders for the national stage. As Iowa’s largest gun rights organization,

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
