(Des Moines, IA) In response to the Iowa Democratic Party’s recent derogatory statement toward Republican candidate for U.S. Senate, Joni Ernst and her status as an Iowa carry concealed permit holder, Ernst issued the following statement:

“The Iowa Democratic Party clearly thinks that gun ownership is not only unsafe, but something to be made fun of. They can call me ‘Pistol Packin’ Joni’ all they want. I’ll accept it with pride. What I can’t accept is the assault on gun rights that Bruce Braley and the Iowa Democratic Party are waging on Iowans. As they said themselves, they think gun ownership is unsafe, so it’s not surprising they are trying to take our guns away. I’d expect that kind of backward thinking from New York liberals, but I would hope for better from Iowans. It just shows you how out of touch Braley and the leadership of the Iowa Democratic Party have become.”
