The National Rifle Association Political Victory Fund (NRA-PVF) endorsed Iowa Governor Kim Reynolds, Lt. Governor Adam Gregg, and Secretary of State Paul Pate in the upcoming general election.

“Kim Reynolds is an unapologetic supporter of our Second Amendment freedoms,” Chris W. Cox, NRA-PVF chairman, said. “Iowans can trust her to fight for their freedoms.”

Reynolds supports the passage of a constitutional amendment to protect the Right to Keep and Bear Arms for future generations of Iowans. She rejects  firearms registration schemes, and opposes any legislation that would ban commonly owned semi-automatic firearms used for hunting, recreational shooting, and self-defense.  As a state legislator, Reynolds voted for important shall issue concealed carry legislation to protect the rights of law-abiding Iowans to defend themselves and their families. ​

Gregg, who is currently serving as acting lieutenant governor, has been a strong advocate for the Second Amendment throughout his career in public service.

“Adam Gregg is committed to defending Iowans constitutional right to self-protection and he respects Iowa’s rich hunting heritage as a valuable tool for wildlife management and conservation,” continued Cox.

 “On behalf of the NRA’s nearly six million members, I urge all NRA members, gun owners and sportsmen in Iowa to vote Kim Reynolds for governor, Adam Gregg for lieutenant governor, and Paul Pate for secretary of state on November 6th,” concluded Cox.​

  1. The NRA has been selling out the American gun owner for over 100 years. They actively supported the NFA in 1934, the Gun Control Act in 1968 and the oppositely named Firearm Owners’ Protection Act of 1986 (FOPA) which removed the right of Americans to purchase new automatic or AOW weapons, a clear violation of the Second Amendment.
    All of this was done with the cooperation of the sellout Progressive owned and run Republican Party as well.

  2. I agree with the NRA endorsement of Governor Reynolds, Lt. Governor Gregg and Secretary of State Paul Pate. It would be wiser, however, for gun owners to rely on the endorsements of the Iowa Firearms Coalition which are available at: https://www.ifcpac.org/voter_guide.him!

    In Iowa House District No. 26, for example, the NRA-PVF gave Republican conservative candidate Rebel Snodgrass an AQ rating, based on his survey response. Despite the fact that Democrat incumbent Scott Ourth had a lower rating, an A-, the NRA PVF endorsed Ourth! Ourth only got a C rating from the Iowa Firearms Coalition. The Iowa Firearms Coalition gives Rebel Snodgrass an A rating and its endorsement.

    Ourth voted against the strong right to bear arms amendment proposed by Rep. Matt Windschitl, which required a strict scrutiny level of review, the most stringent level of review, for gun laws challenged because they violated the fundamental right to keep and bear arms.

    Ourth advocated and voted to substitute the language of the Second Amendment in the U.S. Constitution for Rep. Windschitl’s amendment. The problem is, of course, that a future U.S. Supreme Court may rely on the “militia” clause in the Second Amendment to overrule the 5-4 holding in Heller that the Second Amendment confers an individual right to keep and bear arms. If that happens, and the Iowa Constitution language is identical, there is little doubt that the Iowa Supreme Court would also interpret that language to eliminate any state guarantee of an individual right to bear arms. . That is the Democrat’s game plan, and Ourth supported it.
