Votes on 5 pro gun owner bills TOMORROW (2/23)

Alert_Social_Media

Votes pending!

The Iowa House of Representatives is scheduled to vote on five pieces of pro gun owner legislation tomorrow morning. The Hearing Protection Act, Youth Safety & Parental Rights Act, Privacy Protection Act, ATV Carry Act & Emergency Protection Act are all slated for debate and votes in the House.

Second Amendment Day

Don’t forget tomorrow is also our Second Amendment Day in the Iowa legislature. The National Rifle Association and American Suppressor Association will be joining the Iowa Firearms Coalition and our members to lobby for the passage of these bills and watch them voted on in the House.

We’ll be providing talking points, shirts, and stickers to anyone that attends. If you’re planning to join us we will be setting up shop at 8AM. The House of Representatives begins their day at 8:30AM and the Senate at 9AM.

We expect to see floor action on our bills in the House beginning at roughly 10AM. During any downtime we encourage all of our guests to try to meet individually with their legislators, particularly their senators. IFC leaders will also be talking with our guests and if time allows we believe a few legislators would like to address our members as well.

If you’re joining us tomorrow put this address in your GPS:

Iowa State Capitol
1007 E Grand Ave.
Des Moines, IA 50319

There are several large public parking lots around the capitol complex that should be available for all visitors.

Can’t make it? Stream it!

If you can’t make it to the capitol but want to follow the action you can stream the debate and votes via the state legislature’s website.

We’ll be providing updates throughout the day on our IFC Facebook page so be sure to check for updates as the day goes on.

Thanks so much for your continued support of IFC and our mission to protect and enhance the Second Amendment in Iowa!

    While this is all nice the truth is these are very minor in overall scope to what we should be passing. CONSTITUTIONAL CARRY AND STAND YOUR GROUND are the meat of this carcass and we pussy foot around them. Surpressors? Age requirement to start instruction? Hearing protection? ATV carry? Big friggin deal.
    Could care less about how much noise I make, will start teaching my kids when I damn well please and don’t worry about the government, atv carry. Really? Hearing p[rotecshuon? Are you kidding me? All BS. Quit screwing around and get Consteetushennal carry and stand your ground passed and then we have done something. Jeez. I’m stupid.

    PS Im an IGO shill that doesnt understand politics or the legislative process, and all I do is scream about “muh rights!!!!” on teh internetz. Because what would I do with myself here in my moms basement if I actually got anything done? If something actually got fixed, we couldn’t bitch about it. How could I help Aaron Dorr raise money to buy a new pickup truck with IGO members money if I actually made progress?!

    NOPE! To hell with advancing second amendment rights!!!!! Stand your ground or nothing!!!!!

    PPS Yes I know IGO stole IFC’s SYG bill and pretends that its theirs, but, but, but…SYG or nothing!!!!!!!

    • Joel Sauser says:

      There is absolutely zero chance of getting stand your ground or constitutional carry while Democrats control Senate. I will take these small steps over no steps any day.

    • Thomas Jefferson says:

      Hey bro, been a while. I meant to send you a letter but I was too busy fighting for liberty.
      Take care and don’t mind us doing real work behind the scenes in spite of debbie downers like you.

      Tell Abigail I said hi and that I miss her.
      Sincerely
      TJ Dawg.

    Lets get down to business and stop trying to act like your doing something pro-2nd amendment. We need Stand Your Ground/Consitutional Carry most of all. At present time if someone points a gun at me either in my HOME or out in public, I’m supposed to turn around and run so the perp can shoot me in the back. Nice going Iowa legislative body! We are given the right to carry a hand gun for self protection by our creator. You folks have tied our hands and we live under the threat of going to jail if the prosecuting Attorney so desires and he does. If God forbid we are accosted by a murderer or thief, what are we to do?

    PPPS Yes I know IFC has actually passed SYG ***AND*** Consteetushionel Carry in the House in the last few years, and I know they ran it again in the Senate this year, but I’m just going pretend those facts don’t exist and continue to shill for IGO…Because Aaron Dorr needs MOAR MONAYS!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

    • Phillip Duran says:

      @Gary Barton. While I would like a castle doctrine, this law below does cover much of the issue you presented. In the example you cited, this law should protect you.

      704.1 REASONABLE FORCE.
      “Reasonable force” is that force and no more which a
      reasonable person, in like circumstances, would judge to be necessary
      to prevent an injury or loss and can include deadly force if it is
      reasonable to believe that such force is necessary to avoid injury or
      risk to one’s life or safety or the life or safety of another, or it
      is reasonable to believe that such force is necessary to resist a
      like force or threat. Reasonable force, including deadly force, may
      be used even if an alternative course of action is available if the
      alternative entails a risk to life or safety, or the life or safety
      of a third party, or requires one to abandon or retreat from one’s
      dwelling or place of business or employment.

    TJ Dawg, alias ( Thomas Jefferson,) Abigail says she can’t remember you. Evidently you didn’t leave a lasting enough impression on her. I have however heard through the grapevine that you and Sally Hemmings are quite the couple. I would caution you however that one should NOT fish off the Company dock, but it seems that perhaps you have dipped your “PEN” in the Company ink. Oh Well! While I do appreciate your writing skills, if it were not for me you would of been writing for King George as you sat on your ass most of the time and drank rum. But I do appreciate your “Tyranny in Government” quotes.

    Just saying while we are expending energy on “minor” issues that don’t offend anyone, if these measures are passed which is a good thing, the legislature will think they have accomplished something. What good is having a firearm if they won’t allow us to defend ourselves with it? Like having a case of Condoms and be impotent! It’s not weather we get the tough fights passed that is important, it’s not whether we can win the fights we carefully choose and massage and grease them up so as nobody will notice, it’s we must fight the fights that need to be fought. Stand your ground isn’t even on anyone’s radar and that is NOT what we want. I want to knock their friggin teeth out AND I want them to see it’s coming!!! Yours truly J Adams

    Wow, it’s pretty ballsy for the “IGO shills” to come on here and talk shit, and admit they’re IGO shills in their own posts, hahaha!

    Those clowns must be desperate over there. I suppose that’s what happens when they’ve lost what little respect they had in Des Moines, especially with their former ringleader heading to prison now. I’m sure it won’t be too many more years before Aaron Dorr gets caught in a felony of his own too. It’ll probably involve sheep and midgets, but that’s just a guess.

    Anyway, I guess I’d go nuts too if I knew everything I did was a lie, so I suppose we can’t blame Aaron and IGO too much. It must really, really suck to have NO ideas and have NO support whatsoever. It must really suck to know your “crown jewel bill”, Stand Your Ground, was stolen from IFC because you’re too stupid and ineffective to write your own and no legislator would help you. It must really suck to get absolutely nothing done–and I mean nothing, not a single bill out of sub-committee, let alone to the floor for a vote.

    It must just really, really suck being an IGO rube. Poor bastards now have to come here and shit, because they already shit in their own beds. Wow.

    Why is there someone editing my comments and thus changing the message? How do you have the ability to change someones posts? WTF?

    • Alex M. says:

      Whatever “John Adams.” WTF my ass. You’re just another IGO idiot who doesn’t understand how anything works. Cut out the bullshit act already, it’s getting tired.
