Iowans For Responsible Gun Laws to launch Thursday

No matter our race, background or neighborhood, Iowans know that the majority of us favor commonsense gun safety laws. We know that the lives lost to gun violence are worthy of leaders who will act to protect Iowans and prevent these events from repeating. But Republican lawmakers in the Iowa Legislature have proposed a constitutional amendment that will put Iowans in danger if passed.

The reckless gun amendment could prohibit reasonable safety measures that Iowans support like firearm safety training, universal background checks, and a license to carry a gun in public. This amendment will make all of us less safe.

Join Iowans For Responsible Gun Laws this Thursday, June 16, 2022 to learn more about this new coalition, how the reckless gun amendment will impact our state and why responsible gun owners and gun dealers oppose it. You can find an event near you below:
