Legislative ALERT — Anti-Gun Bills Introduced in Iowa Legislature. Passage Highly Unlikely.


Anti-gun organizations have once again submitted their usual rights-restrictive bills in the House, but key legislators have indicated that these bills will not be advancing out of the House and probably won’t even make it through committee.

You may hear other gun groups squawking about the sky falling and needing your money to stop it from happening. DO NOT BE FOOLED, these anti-gun bills WILL NOT be passing. Instead we encourage you to save that money to spend on fun stuff, like ammunition, training or a NFA tax stamp for the suppressors that will soon be legal in Iowa!

In the meantime, the Iowa Firearms Coalition has been working closely with leaders and legislators in both chambers and are close to achieving the final language of a bill to be filed in the Senate and the House very soon. While we can’t reveal the bill right now since negotiations are still ongoing, we are comfortable saying that once it’s passed, gun owners across Iowa will be very pleased.

(From left to right) Richard Rodgers, Iowa Firearms Coalition Board Member; Kraig Paulsen, Speaker of the House; Linda Upmeyer, House Majority Leader; Clel Baudler, R. House Member; Gibson girls with their father, Nathan Gibson; and Barry Snell, Iowa Firearms Coalition President meet to discuss removing the age limit for children to fire handguns with proper supervision and parental permission.

So stay tuned! When key members agree to run the bill, we will send it to you too and create an action center alert so you can continue to show your support and contribute to the passing of this historic bill.

    But please let us know about the numbers of these bills so we can express our opinions to out legislators. I see HF 70, Prohibiting Magazines with more than 10 Rounds, HF 76 Prohibinting “semi-automatic assault weapons”- and HF 77 which establishes a cumberrsome background system similar to the one passed in the last election in Washington State. HF 77 does not exempt persons holding Conceal Carry Permits or Permits to Acquire.

      Those are the ones. Before you get too worked up though, we’re getting word that those bills are already dead. Without a doubt you should still be contacting your legislators, there’s just no need to get your blood pressure up about these. 😉

        I do not intend to get my bp up over these. Even if they made it out of the General Assembly I can only see a veto from the Governor. OTH, I like to make my legislative critters aware of my opinions. My Representaive is a new Democrat named McConkey and my Senator is Gronstal. Both gun control freaks.

    I read this article in the newsletter. I appreciate getting 2A news that isn’t just a thinly disguised appeal for donations. Keep up the good work!
