Waterloo Iowa Gun Show a Huge Hit
Iowa – -(AmmoLand.com)-Recently Iowa Gun Owners, with the help of several dedicated volunteers, attended the Waterloo gun show.
The crowd was impressive and diverse. We met with doctors, waitresses, line workers, pastors, Democrats, and Republicans. All are tired of the government being able to regulate their right of self-defense and were happy to sign our petition.
The energy was contagious and there were times when we were simply overwhelmed by the crowds and couldn’t interact with everyone. What a great problem!
IGO was able to secure an additional 550 signed petitions for the REAL Right-to-Carry bill next session and raise some much needed financial support as well.
We are going to be at the following locations this fall:
- Nov. 6-7 in Altoona, held at the Adventureland Park (305 34th Ave NW), from 5-9pm on Friday to 9am-5pm on Saturday.
- Nov. 13-14 in Cedar Rapids, held at the Hawkeye Downs Building #1 (4400 6th St SW) same times as above.
- Dec. 11-12 in Waterloo, held in the McElroy Auditorium (257 Ansborough St) same times as above.
If you are coming to these shows please look for us. We really enjoy getting to meet our members. In addition, if you would like to volunteer working at an IGO table during an upcoming gun show please let us know. They really are a lot of fun!
Iowa Gun Owners (IGO) was formed in January of 2009 to combat the oppressive gun laws in the State of Iowa. IGO does not believe that you, as a law abiding citizen, should have to beg permission from the government to be able to defend yourself and your family. That’s why we are working so hard to get a Vermont/Alaska style carry law passed in Iowa. In these states, unless you are a convicted felon or otherwise barred from possessing weapons, you don’t need a permit to carry a gun for self-defense! Join us now!
