The new Democratic majority wasted no time at all before announcing their first major gun control proposal for the new session: Universal Background Checks.
Iowa voters just sent Cindy Axne and Abby Finkenauer to Washington D.C., and they need to hear from their constituents that we do not support radical gun-control proposals nor will we accept our representation rubber stamping bills for Nancy Pelosi and the out-of-state gun control lobby. H.R.8 is a predictably lousy bill that imposes a burden on gun owners and does nothing to make Iowans safer. Criminals have never cared about background checks nor will they be impacted by this legislation. The only way to ever enforce this ridiculous legislation would be with some repugnant firearm registration scheme.
Iowa’s legislators have been slammed with the voices of elitist donors, a biased media, out of touch celebrities and those in the resistance who scream the loudest. With this change in our representation and the gavel being handed to Nancy Pelosi, we need to step up our game and make the voices of real Iowans who aren’t willing to sacrifice liberty in the name of senseless restrictions so the gun grabbers can score a legislative victory heard. Real activism means participating in our advocacy campaigns, leaving voicemails, and attending town-halls, and more!
