Legalize Suppressors in Iowa


Here’s the breakdown of yesterday’s House vote on HF527, the Omnibus Gun Bill. The bill passed with ease, 75 votes to 24. The vote was noteworthy for two reasons:

1) It passed with broad bi-partisan support. Republicans and Democrats came together to pass this bill.

2) Despite 24 votes against HF527, not a single Representative chose to speak out against the bill when given the opportunity. It’s rare for any bill to pass without any voiced opposition. It’s practically unheard of for a pro-gun owner bill to pass without a single voice speaking out against it.

We’ve now reached a critical point. The Senate version of the Omnibus Gun Bill (SF425) is still awaiting debate and a vote. At this point neither has not been scheduled. We know there are many groups who want to see this bill watered down, or amended to make it un-passable. Please contact your Senator. Tell them to pass SF425 without any change to its content.

We’ve made it easy for you. Our newest Omnibus Gun Bill Advocacy Campaign allows to you send a respectful and professional email directly to your Senator in less than 60 seconds. Please help spread this vital message.


Voted For the Omnibus Gun Bill (75)

These 75 Representatives have recognized the value of your constitutional rights. They believe you should be free to teach your children how to properly handle firearms. To own suppressors. To keep your personal information private.

Please take a second to send them a note or call them (515-281-3221) to say thanks for standing up for your rights and the rights of all Iowans.
