Iowa Gun Owners Alert 1/13/10

On December 30th, number one son and I joined about 50 others in an effort to stuff envelopes to send to thousands of gun owners in Iowa. Our efforts were minuscule compared to Aaron Dorr, his family, and others who spent countless hours that week, printing, folding, stuffing and stamping these packets.

The packet contains letters of encouragement from Aaron and representative Sorenson, but more importantly, it contains postcards to send to our state senator and representative to encourage them to join Iowa Gun Owners to pass the Vermont-style bill headed their way this session.
The bill restores the 2nd Amendment in Iowa by eliminating mandatory government training, paying fees, and the whole concept of having to beg permission to exercise a Constitutional right.

We must not allow anti-gun politicians to get a free pass. We must demand that they vote on the REAL Right-to-Carry bill and focus their energy on this bill.

If the anti-gun politicians want to kill the bill, or water it down with weakening amendments they can do that. But they are going to have to do it on the record, with recorded votes. This may come at a high price next November.

What you will not see happen is Iowa Gun Owners making these concessions up front, granting the gun-grabbers exactly what they want. This is what it means to be No Compromise!
It was a pleasure to work with like-minded people for a common goal. My regret is that I could give that one day.

You must be some kind of "principles freak", just ask Sebastian of SIH.

He would know, he has never been accused of having principles.

Ah yes, Snowflake. I haven't read any of his stuff for quite a while.

I said on my first postings that I was getting off the sidelines and into the fight. This is the first mail stuffing that I worked on.

The son and I met some great people that day, and found out that this group we worked with aren't just about guns.
