The Iowa General Assembly adjourned last month, once again with disappointing results for gun owners and Second Amendment advocates across the state. With the legislative session concluded and the election season upon us, it is time to remember that every vote cast at the ballot box in every district by pro-gun voters makes the difference – because every state legislator’s vote counts, on the House or Senate floor and on every committee. For years in Iowa, committee chairmanship assignments and leadership positions in the Senate have allowed a small anti-gun group of legislators to block every necessary pro-gun improvement from a vote on the Senate floor, and likely enactment.
