Legislative Updates on Legislators Who Missed the Message From the Voters of Iowa Last November

This week’s President’s Message is an update on our Iowa Legislators who missed the Iowa voters’ message last November when they passed by an overwhelming majority the Freedom Amendment.

It’s understandable that Des Moines Metro and Johnson County area State Senators and Representatives feel pressure from the ten percent of Iowans who are Leftist dangerous quacks when it comes to gun control issues.  After all, a large percentage of that ten percent live in and around Des Moines and Iowa City, so that tends to amplify their voices demanding “common sense gun safety laws”.

As IFC Executive Committee Member Katie Howard so eloquently explained in her blog just a few days ago, so called “Gun Safety” laws are just newspeak for “Gun Control”.  The resistance to HF654 (the comprehensive gun bill that cleans up many parts of Iowa Code to bring them into compliance with both the Freedom Amendment and the  recent SCOTUS Decision (Bruen), is being brought up by the very vocal Leftist 10% who want a monopoly on power.

Surprising to no one, those anti-freedom Leftists are all for the arming of their favorite groups, be they LGBT, BLM, or Antifa, but not ordinary, everyday American citizens.  Recently, National Public Radio reporter Todd Bookman did a story on exactly that.  One of the quotes in the story was:

“I mean, if you go far enough left, you get your guns back.”

Need I say more?  Time to reach out AGAIN to your State Senator or State House Representative with your support of HF654.  Call, Fax, email, or use the IFC Action Alert system to reach out to them as soon as possible.  And while you’re at it, remind them that Iowan’s voted them into office, not the woke big banks and freight companies.  They need to support Governor Reynolds Anti-ESG bill, Senate File 507, and stop discriminating against firearm, agriculture, and energy businesses in Iowa.
