My freedom-loving friends,
The dangerous overreaching being attempted by the current Administration in Washington D.C. has led several states to declare that they are exerting their Tenth Amendment sovereignty on the issue of Second Amendment infringement by the Federal Government.
1) The Sovereign States (and those States that joined the Union after the original thirteen colonies became sovereign States) created our Federal Government with limited powers. The Federal Government did not create the States.
2) The Tenth Amendment rights that several States are now invoking in defense of the US Constitution’s Second Amendment are intended to ensure that no State will or can be compelled to enforce illegal and unconstitutional infringements on any of our God-given rights as enshrined in the Bill of Rights. Not only our right to speak freely, to peaceably assemble, or the right to prevent any Government from holding a monopoly of force, but all of our fundamental rights.
3) The Representatives and Senators of the Iowa General Assembly and other state legislatures represent the essential political power in America, not those inside the Washington D.C. Beltway.
Please reach out now to our Governor, your State Representative, and your State Senator and ask them to affirm the sovereignty of Iowa’s citizens over the Federal Government.
Shoot straight, speak the truth, and never stop defending your freedoms.
President, Iowa Firearms Coalition.
