Election Day – Don't let the Gun Grabbers Get Away with It!
Iowa--(Ammoland.com)- Dear Friends of Iowa Gun Owners,
Today is election day. It's time to make sure that your voice is heard.
It's time to send a message to the anti-gun crowd that you will not forget their betrayal and their votes cast that interfere with your 2nd Amendment rights.
We simply ran out of time trying to get an alert out to you yesterday. There are so many pro-gun candidates that we are trying to help in targeted districts…..
Many of you have asked about some of the state wide races that are being voted on today. We will answer some of those questions below. Many of you have also been asking about more local (County) races as well as Congressional races.
Iowa Gun Owners is focused on passing our gun bills through the Iowa General Assembly and so we've focused our efforts and energy in that direction and are unable to give suggestions in other races.
Please read below for some final races that we are covering for you.Yours for the Right to Keep and Bear Arms, Signature Aaron Dorr
The 2010 Gun Rights Candidate Survey consists of 8 simple questions that poll candidates on REAL Right-to-Carry, the repeal of Iowa's permit-to-purchase, a true Stand-your-Ground bill, opposition to banning semi-auto weapons, support of the Firearms Freedom Act, and more.
If a candidate won't put their beliefs on paper then you and I have every reason to expect an aggressive anti-gun vote to be cast by that candidate if elected.
In this final article we are going to focus on several state wide races that you've been asking us about.
Don't forget to take action today on these alerts you've been receiving. Now is the time to send a loud message to the gun grabbers, after two years of fighting with them, that you'll not forgot their anti-gun positions.
In the race for Governor:
Terry Branstad has completed the Iowa Gun Owners candidate survey with all pro-gun responses. He has pledged, in writing, to sign the REAL Right-to-Carry bill into law once we get it on his desk.
This is an amazing feat to have accomplished! There is virtually no position that Brandstad had to take while Governor regarding the 2nd Amendment to look into – which is why we use the candidate survey in the first place.
We should also point out that Lt. Governor candidate Kim Reynolds always co-sponsored our legislation and voted for it on the Floor as a Senator.
On the other hand, Governor Culver refused to complete our survey. He also signed into law, this year, SF2357 which allows you to lose your guns based solely on an accusation of a crime. By signing this bill, Governor Culver did away with the concept of ‘innocent until proven guilty.'
These two anti-gun facts are very telling regarding Culver's views on the 2nd Amendment.
Secretary of State
Neither candidate returned the survey. For those who are asking why we would survey those candidates, recall that Governor Culver was formerly the Secretary of State and it is helpful to understand the views of these individuals.
Neither candidate returned the survey. Tom Miller, however, has been working both directly and indirectly to regulate, restrict and interfere with your gun rights for a long time. From allowing cities to ban weapons in city property to pushing for SF2357 last session, Miller has been very dangerous to your gun rights.

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! Visit: www.iowagunowners.org
