SJR18 RKBA Amendment Passes Iowa House & Senate

“The right of the people to keep and bear arms shall not be infringed. The sovereign state of Iowa affirms and recognizes this right to be a fundamental individual right. Any and all restrictions of this right shall be subject to strict scrutiny”

What an amazing Second Amendment Day! Thanks to those who came out and watched the RKBA Constitutional amendment pass in BOTH chambers today!

The amendment passed on a party-line vote with the exception of State Senator Rich Taylor (D) who joined with us to support the right of Iowans to keep and bear arms.

Thanks to those legislators who delivered strong remarks in support of the freedom of Iowans today. Thanks to Senator Brad Zaun and Rep. Matt Windschitl for managing these bills and to Sen. Taylor for putting principle over party.

One thing was made abundantly and painfully clear today. The people who voted against this amendment are terrified because they view the Freedom Amendment as a barrier to the ridiculous gun control measures that they desperately want to pass.
