bobby-jindalClive, Iowa – Iowa Firearms Coalition is pleased to announce Louisiana Governor Bobby Jindal as the keynote speaker at their 3rd Annual IFC/NRA Second Amendment Rally at Brownells Big Springs Shooting Complex just outside of Searsboro, Iowa on August 25th, 2012.

Governor Jindal endorsed legislation in Louisiana for a constitutional right to keep and bear arms. That bill passed the Louisiana House and Senate this year and Louisiana voters will now decide in November whether to amend the state Constitution to limit the ability of the Legislature and other arms of government to restrict the right to possess and personal weapons.

Iowa Firearms Coalition and the NRA both backed similar legislation in Iowa during this year’s legislative session. HJR2009, a bill to establish in Iowa’s Constitution a similar protection for the right to keep and bear arms, passed the Iowa House in February, but was stalled in the Senate.  Iowa is currently one of only six states that do not have explicit protection in their Constitutions for the right of individuals to keep and bear arms.

The annual IFC/NRA Second Amendment Rally is a day-long, family friendly celebration of Iowans’ Second Amendment rights.  Activities include training on firearms and firearms safety, introduction to various shooting sports and demonstrations and displays by firearms and equipment vendors.  In addition, the rally provides a forum where Iowa legislators can meet firearms owners and discuss important issues and legislative initiatives, such as the right to keep and bears arms amendment, the “Stand Your Ground” bill, defense of traditional ammunition and sound suppressors.
