Active Gun Bills in Iowa – Who voted For & Against

Below you’ll find the voting record for all four of the February 4th committee votes on pro gun owner bills.

We’ve included who was for and who was against each bill, as well as each legislator’s email address. We encourage you to email all those who were in favor of these bills and thank them for supporting your rights and the rights of Iowans.

If you choose to email those who voted against any of these bills please maintain a respectful tone while expressing your displeasure with their vote. We know for a fact that gun control advocates are looking for any reason they can find to label us as radical, so we must do everything we can to prove them wrong. That includes the manner in which we interact with those of differing viewpoints. In short, we’re all adults so let’s act like it.


Join us for the
2016 Second Amendment Day in the capitol
February 23rd

  1. Greg Heitland says:

    I find it totally obscene that there are representatives of the state of Iowa, that don’t respect their constituents desires and support these bills? It inspires me to take the time and commitment necessary to remove them from our political future! I will help defeat them in the next elections on any available opportunity.

  2. John Walker says:

    The real issue here is that none of this should be an issue. The government has already spoken on gun issues… it’s called The Second Amendment. No other laws or restrictions should have been written. Ever. Period.

  3. johndeeregene says:

    the trouble is that iowa does not have the second amendment in its constitution. we need to correct this very soon
