Iowa Gun Control Advocates Notably Frustrated
If you’ve ever wondered if all those emails and phone calls we ask you to send actually make a difference, wonder no more. Not only are we getting pro-Second Amendment laws passed here in Iowa, we’re blocking gun control bills and it’s making anti-gunners very frustrated. Of course, none of this is new news, but this week multiple media outlets verified what we’ve been saying for quite some time now.
Last week a host of gun control advocates voiced their frustration over their continued failure to advance their gun control agenda in Iowa. They even owned up to the fact that they’re losing ground in our state as IFC backed bills like ATV Carry and the legalization of suppressors are signed into law.
In short, all those emails, phone calls and campaign work you guys are doing is paying off. Not only are we passing pro-gun owner laws, we’re blocking gun control efforts in our state and it is making gun grabbers visibly frustrated.
BUT, despite their frustrations Iowa’s gun control advocates are not slowing down. They recently outlined their gun control priorities for the upcoming legislative session. Needless to say, we cannot become complacent and we’ll need your continued commitment to block these anti-gun bills.
Iowa Ranks Among States with Least “Gun Violence”
The Wall Street Journal (WSJ) brought more good news late last month. The WSJ found that Iowa ranks 9th in the country for the least amount of “gun violence.” This was noteworthy enough that the Des Moines Register even picked up on the story saying “Despite having one of the lowest rates of gun-related deaths, Iowa has one of the highest rates of gun ownership, with about one-third of adult Iowans owning a firearm.”
Anti-gunners who endlessly preach that more guns equals more crime are continually being proven wrong by us Iowans. Keep it up!
