Understanding Iowa Public Measure 1 - the Iowa Gun Amendment
The proposed amendment to the Iowa Constitution regarding guns is on the ballot November 8th. We are concerned that the wording is confusing and encourage those who are in favor of sensible gun regulations to vote NO to on this measure.
We have previously had submissions to this Progressive Action Update discussing this reckless proposal. You can read more about the educational opportunities members of our extended communities presented regarding this issue here and here.
Our friends the Sisters of St. Francis recently shared this information with us:
