Our bill sponsor, Representative Kent Sorenson is now being threatened, politically, by those very people in the Capitol who are pushing compromised and watered down carry language - and you are not going to believe where this threat came from.Rep. Sorensen, one of the staunchest supporters we have in the statehouse, was told regarding the current carry bill HF2528,
either help us [NRA] with our bill (and we will make you a hero in Iowa) or we will help your opponent in the upcoming election.The common perception is that the reference is to Sen. Stacy Appel (for more background of Appel and her husband, go to: Staci Appel Is Costing Taxpayers A Lot Of Money Appel is one of the most liberal POS politicians in the state, second to Gronstal (the only politician whom the NRA gave money to). Neither of the pukes are friends of gun owners.
The NRA told one of the most vigorous and loyal 2nd Amendment politicians in the state that they would back his opponent in the 2010 election if he wouldn't sit down, shut up and quit offering stronger pro-gun-rights amendments to their pet bill. Yeah, that's politics.
That's right, an NRA lobbyist said that he was going to try to defeat a pro-gun Representative like Sorenson because he's too.............pro-gun.Listen to an interview between Steve Deace of WHO radio and Rep. Sorenson
And, the opponent that Sorenson has in his upcoming election is a notorious anti-gunner!!!
So the NRA is willing to support an anti-gunner over pro-gun Representative Kent Sorenson just because he does not like the details of the NRA bill.
That's why the NRA should be kicked out of Iowa
