What We Believe:In our legislature this past year, they brought a Vermont-style carry bill to a tie vote and are working to introduce this bill in the Senate when they convene early next year. They are also working on a "castle-doctrine" bill and to end the permit process.
Iowa Gun Owners was founded on the idea that law abiding citizens should not have to beg the government for permission to own and carry firearms for self-defense.
We believe the at the 2nd Amendment was not given to us to merely protect our right to target shoot and hunt but to protect our right of self-defense against criminals and tyrants.
We believe that these rights are God-given and constitutionally guaranteed.
We believe that a government official should not be able to deny law abiding citizens this right just because he does not like your politics, your religion, or the way you earn a living.
We believe that law abiding citizens should not have to pay fees, pass tests, and prove to a bureaucrat that they can shoot a gun before being allowed to exercise this right.
