This morning the Jasper County Board of Supervisors, consisting of Brandon Talsma, Doug Cupples, and Denny Carpenter, voted UNANIMOUSLY to affirm Jasper County’s civil rights across the board. Jasper County has become a 2A Sanctuary County.
Last week Mitchell County became a “Second Amendment Supportive County” in a 4-1 vote. Four Mitchell County Supervisors voted in support of your civil rights. They were Todd Frein, Steve Smolik, Michael Mayer, and Mark Hendrickson. IFC thanks them for their action. One Mitchell County Supervisor, Jim Wherry, didn’t support your civil rights. The meeting minutes can be found HERE. You can watch the meeting discussion starting @ 32:46 below.
When will the State of Iowa become a complete 2A Sanctuary? We’d love to see our Governor made such a declaration. Let Governor Reynolds and Lt Governor Gregg know you want our state to affirm and support this civil right by using IFC’s ACTION CENTER to send a quick message.
The Iowa Firearms Coalition teamed up with NRA-ILA and drafted an example resolution declaring your county to be Second Amendment Sanctuary County. Simply remove “YOUR” and insert your county with the language below. Make sure every one of your friends, neighbors, and fellow constituents get a copy of this, in order for them to impress upon your county supervisors the importance placed on God given and law protected liberties.
