• Throwback Thursday: “Local” MDA Activist’s Ambush Thwarted by IFC Members

    November 20, 2014

    Here’s a fun throwback from August. That’s when Mom’s Demand Action’s so-called “local” supporters attempted to get the drop on then candidate Joni Ernst in the middle of her Iowa State Fair stump speech. Prior to the event they sent out robo-calls searching for mom’s to come to the state fair and call out Joni.

    They were so desperate to get anyone to come out that they offered to reimburse these mom’s parking costs, admission fees, even the money spent on food they ate while at the state fair. You know it’s bad when you have to bribe people to come to your events.

    But here’s the real kicker: the calls were made from California, and if you planned on going you had to RSVP with the organizers based in California.

    Take a listen:

     

     

    Here’s what makes this story great: IFC members, with little more than 24 hours notice showed up in great numbers the day of Joni’s speech. The angry moms organized by out of state rabble rousers numbered somewhere in the half-dozen range. The speech went off without a hitch, and those moms who did show up didn’t make a peep.

    We’ve said it before and we’ll say it again: Good things happen because IFC members can always be relied upon to come together and make a stand for what’s right.

    What’s even better? You recognize the value of your freedoms and are willing stand up for them without having to be bribed!

  • NRA rolls out Iowa ad campaign

    August 20, 2014

    The National Rifle Association will soon be front and center here in Iowa.

    The gun rights organization has just rolled out a new ad campaign highlighting gun control zealot Michael Bloomberg’s hypocrisy. The NRA’s Institute for Legislative Action has just released a new :30 second TV commercial, which is just the first part of their new multimedia campaign. Iowans will being seeing and hearing much more from the NRA in the weeks to come as the NRA has purchased six figures worth of digital and social media advertisements in Iowa and other battleground states.

    This is certainly welcome news for Iowa’s gun owning voters. The new NRA ad campaign will coincide with ongoing efforts by the Iowa Firearms Coalition to push Bloomberg’s anti-gun minions out of Iowa’s state legislature, and pass strong pro gun laws such as:

    • Right to Keep and Bear Arms amendment to the state constitution
    • Stand Your Ground laws
    • Suppressor/NFA legalization
