• Brady Campaign Forced To Pay Pro-Gun Groups!

    June 24, 2015
    We'd love to see a fat check and a good portion of the Brady Campaign's money get used to protect and enhance the Second Amendment rights of Iowans.  Please help spread this around, it might be the easiest way you can help us raise money (and stick it to the anti's in the process).

    Anti-gunners plan backfires big time

    For the last year the notoriously anti-gun Brady Campaign has been suing the online ammunition retailer Lucky Gunner. They claim that because Lucky Gunner sold the ammunition used in the tragic Aurora, Colorado shooting they were somehow responsible for the actions of their product’s end-user.

    Fortunately the judge in this suit laid down the law on the Brady bunch and dismissed the case. What’s even better he forced the Brady Campaign to cover Lucky Gunner’s legal fees!

    “Those who ignite a fire should be responsible for the cost of suppressing it before it becomes a conflagration,” Senior District Judge Richard P. Matsch wrote to the Brady Campaign.

    Lucky Gunner to give away the Brady’s money

    Judge Matsch ordered the Brady Campaign to pay Lucky Gunner $111.971.10 to cover their legal fees.

    Having been drug through the mud for months by desperate anti-gunners the folks over at Lucky Gunner would have been well within their rights to take that hard-earned money, pay their bills and continue on with their lives.

    But in a true showing of their commitment to the Second Amendment community Lucky Gunner has announced they’re giving away every single penny they’ve been awarded to a select group of pro-gun groups throughout the country.

    Fortunately the Iowa Firearms Coalition is on the list. This means the IFC could use the anti-gunners own money against them here in Iowa.

    If we want to capitalize on this opportunity we’re going to need your grassroots support once again.

    It won’t cost you any money, and it’ll take less than 60 seconds. But your actions will have a direct financial impact on the Iowa Firearms Coalition.

    “we’ll cut checks to each organization receiving votes on a percentage basis. In other words, if “Organization A” gets 5% of the vote, it will receive 5% of whatever is recovered.”

    We’d love to see a fat check and a good portion of the Brady Campaign’s money get used to protect and enhance the Second Amendment rights of Iowans.

  • “Gun Free Zone” sticker FAILS to stop attempted bloodbath in Maquoketa

    September 9, 2014

    Deb Lane must certainly be counting her blessings tonight. The Jackson County Assessor was very nearly murdered today by a lunatic who walked right past a little white sticker declaring the county courthouse a “Gun Free Zone.” Tonight Deb Lane is alive not because Jackson County declared their courthouse a so-called “Gun Free Zone,” but rather because of the heroic actions of Larry “Buck” Koos. The Telegraph Herald describes today’s shooting:

    Authorities said [Francis “Gus”] Glaser, who was at the meeting to argue a long-running property tax dispute, pulled a small handgun from his briefcase, pointed it at Jackson County Assessor Deb Lane and fired one shot as she was walking out of the room. Lane was not hit.
    Glaser was tackled by county Supervisor Larry “Buck” Koos and held down by Koos and others. A second shot was fired during the struggle, killing Glaser.
    Maquoketa Police Chief Brad Koranda said Glaser still was holding the gun with his finger on the trigger, indicating he shot himself. It’s unclear if it was intentional.
     

    Fortunately the shooter (who was not a concealed weapon permit holder) missed his target. Unfortunately we’re once again left with more evidence that “Gun Free Zones” do nothing to make our society safer. Sandy Hook Elementary, Aurora’s Century Movie Theater, the Virginia Tech campus, and so on and so on. Case after case that a simple sign on a door does absolutely nothing to increase security. These feel good measures are nothing more than a distraction (if they’re even noticed) to lunatics who are dead set on hurting innocent people inside these “Gun Free Zones.” In this case the crazed shooter, intent on doing harm to others, not only carried a gun right past that “Gun Free Zone” sticker on the door, he even bypassed the courthouse’s seldom used metal detecting wands.

    It’s a shame that we have to witness this type of incident. It’s a shame Jackson County doesn’t realize their sticker does nothing to protect those inside their courthouse. And it’s a shame that anti-gun zealots will continue to hide the truth, that so-called “Gun Free Zones” are all too often “Mass Shooting Zones” just waiting to happen. Thankfully today one of the good guys, Buck Koos, was able to thwart a potential bloodbath, and Deb Lane is still alive — no thanks to a little white sticker on a door.
