“Here’s Why Someone Would Need To Own An ‘Assault’ Rifle”

I would like to point out an excellent article entitled “Here’s Why Someone Would Need To Own An ‘Assault’ Rifle.”  A couple of noteworthy quotes: The left keeps asking why anyone needs an “assault” rifle. Here’s one reason — in 2010, a Texas teen used a rifle similar to the one used in Newtown to defend his younger sister and himself from home invaders. In fact, when added together, knives, blunt instruments and the human body were responsible for more … Continued

Joining the NRA is a great way to help protect our 2nd amendment … Continued

Iowa Carry’s New Legislative Action Center

Iowa Carry, an affiliate group of the Second Amendment Foundation that focuses on concealed carry rights for the state of Iowa, has created its own legislative action center.  From that website, gun rights supporters can easily stay up to date on pending gun legislation and contact their representatives with just a few clicks.  I would like to encourage Iowa residents to take a moment and use the legislative action center to urge their representatives to support HF2255, which would greatly … Continued

“Fables, Myths & Other Tall Tales about GUN LAWS, CRIME and CONSTITUTIONAL RIGHTS”

I would encourage everyone to check out either the online version or the downloadable (PDF) version of the NRA’s “Fables, Myths & Other Tall Tales about GUN LAWS, CRIME and CONSTITUTIONAL RIGHTS” pamphlet.  It debunks many anti-gun myths, and should be of help when debating gun rights with those who take as fact the anti gun and anti self defense propaganda which saturates the mainstream media.
