• NRA backed candidates win historic number of races

    November 5, 2014

    Untitled-1Last night was a good night for NRA backed candidates. They won a historic number of races around the country. Americans sent a strong message to Michael Bloomberg, Gabby Giffords, Joe Biden, Harry Reid, and every other gun control pusher: no more gun control! Special congrats to Joni Ernst and David Young who fended off the anti-gun crowd’s millions of dollars in attacks and will soon represent Iowans. From the NRA’s Political Victory Fund:

    As a result of the NRA’s efforts in the 2014 elections, NRA-PVF endorsed candidates won hard-fought victories in Arkansas, Colorado, Georgia, Kansas, Kentucky, Iowa, Montana, Nebraska, North Carolina, South Dakota and West Virginia.  The NRA was pivotal in re-electing pro-gun governors in Florida, Georgia, Idaho, Kansas, Texas and Wisconsin, and in ousting a Bloomberg-backed anti-gun governor in Maryland. In addition, the NRA had great success in races for the U.S. House, including significant victories in AR-2, CO-6, FL-26, IA-3, NH-1, and VA-10, among many others. 

  • 97% of Iowans are ignoring the biggest threat to our 2nd Amendment rights

    During the American Revolution, the active forces in the field against the King’s tyranny never amounted to more than 3% of the colonists. They were in turn actively supported by perhaps 10% of the population. In addition to these revolutionaries were perhaps another 20% who favored their cause but did little or nothing to support it. Another one-third of the population sided with the King (by the end of the war there were actually more Americans fighting FOR the King than there were in the field against him) and the final third took no side, blew with the wind and took what came.

    From: What is a “Three Percenter?”

     

    Many of you may have seen the paragraph above, but if you haven’t, take a moment and think about those numbers. Where would YOU fall on that list?

    Be a three percenter – Join the fight!

    20% favor the cause…

    …but do little to nothing to support it.

    When it comes to defending our 2nd Amendment rights are you with us? Are you one of the 20% who agrees with the work we’re doing? If so, what are you doing to support those fighting for your rights? What’s stopping you from taking an active role in the fight to defend YOUR freedoms?

    10% actively support the cause

    If you’re part of the 10% of the population who actively supports the defense of YOUR rights, THANK YOU. Your contributions make our fight possible.

    3% are actually in the fight

    To the three percent that are out there campaigning with us; knocking on doors – making phone calls – talking to your neighbors  – spreading the word about why we do what do and believe what we believe — IFC is truly grateful to have you. You’re the ones our politicians fear when they defy our will. They know it’s people like you who won’t forget their actions. They know you’re the ones that will make life miserable for them during campaign season. They know that you’re the ones that are the biggest threat to their reelection efforts.

    Everyone else can talk about what they believe, but you alone can stick out your chest and boast that you are actually out their doing something for your beliefs.

     

    We’re fighting tooth and nail to make Iowa a true pro-gun state. We’ve brought you Shall Issue. We’ve successfully fought off attempts to weaken your 2nd Amendment rights. We’ve passed bills that will give YOU the right to stand your ground, that will protect YOUR right to keep and bear arms, that will LEGALIZE suppressors, and will make it illegal for the media to publish YOUR information. Unfortunately, all of the work on these bills has been undone by one liberal anti-gun state senator by the name of Rob Hogg. Time after time he’s blocked our bills from advancing. As frustrating as this has been, there’s still cause for hope. The only reason Hogg has been able to stand in our way is because he’s part of 26-24 Democrat majority in the Iowa Senate, but with your help that’s about to change.

    Iowa Firearms Coalition is a non-partisan organization. We’re proud to work with anyone who’ll help us defend our 2nd Amendment rights. But for far too long Rob Hogg has been able to thwart our hard work and the will of Iowans state-wide. We’ve attempted to work with Senate Democrats to find other ways of getting these bills passed, but ultimately we get nowhere. They continue to support Hogg, and defeating our attempts to work with the rest of them. This has left us with no other options. In order to protect and advance our rights we must fight to remove our biggest roadblock from power. We’re still non-partisan, but the fact is Rob Hogg and those that continue to prop him up must go.

    IFC is now actively working to flip the Iowa Senate. Our opponents hold a razor-thin majority. If we can remove them from power our ability to advance solid pro gun bills increases dramatically. In order to do that we need men and women who want to hold our politicians accountable for their actions – right now. We’re looking for the ones who are willing to stand up and call out these anti-gun politicians. We need those who haven’t forgotten the value their rights. Right now we need 3 percenters.

    Join us. Take an active role in this fight and volunteer with us today.
