And thank you for making my point…..

State Rep. Dan Muhlbauer, D-Manilla, says Iowa lawmakers should ban semi-automatic guns and “start taking them” from owners who refuse to surrender any illegal firearms through a buy-back program.

  1. I knew the story, but I’ve never actually seen the testimony. Tackles conceal carry, gun free zones, and “assault weapons”, all in under 6 minutes. Bravo


    1. I heard an interview of hers where she explains why she went medieval on the panel. The speakers before her were not being paid attention to by the members and she even saw Schummer laughing at some joke told by somebody else. She got mad and let it rip.
      Schummer’s face is a freaking poem as you could see.
      I firmly believe Texas owes its CWP to her.


  2. I’m in Iowa and wrote a mass letter for pretty much the whole legislature after this came out.

    Senator Muhlbauer emailed be back in less than 24 hours.

    “Thanks for your letter.

    The news article that was printed was not a true representation of how I feel. There was very little said about gun control in the interview. There are so many things that go into the Connecticut incident.

    Mental Health being a huge part of, School Policies, Society and Guns. The interview was about what could be done to prevent further shootings. It was never about gun control, it was about protecting children in school.

    I was asked, IF you could stop this from happening would you be willing to take away guns? My answer was, We are talking about 5 and 6 year olds here, IF you could stop all violence by doing that sure, BUT that will never happen, so we need to focus on mental health, school policies, etc. Only part of my statement was used! The article was very slanted and does not represent my feelings.

    Frankly, I think he’s lying to me. But, if he wants to change his position I’ll let him.


    1. Ed, keep banging. Get lots of people to bang more letters, calls, emails, faxes, whatever.
      This is a numbers & decibels’ game…The more votes & loudest ones win.


      1. First note:

        Do not hesitate to email spam every state legislator you can find. I emailed out to everyone in Iowa and am getting a surprising number of direct responses.


        Some stuff I have thrown together is at:

        I’ve heard back from Tom Shaw [Republican Pocahontas County] that he’s “submitted a bill draft request for a “Firearms Protection Act.” It is based on the language of a bill introduced in Wyoming. Here is the draft language (delete Wyoming/insert Iowa):

        Rep. Shaw says feel free to distribute that.

        He deserves the rep, anybody who can help get that out there, it would be appreciated. I’m not even in his district.


  3. Awesome! Especially the money quote at the end! Now gonna have to go back and listen to it again when I don’t have a 4-year-old tearing around chasing the dog…


  4. “We cannot have big guns out here as far as the big guns that are out here, the semi-automatics and all of them,” Muhlbauer said.”

    Wow. The intelligence level coming out of these politicians is amazing. Sure sounds like the kind of guy I want regulating my guns.
