Former Iowa Governor and Ambassador to China Terry Branstad announced on Wednesday he plans to vote for the Freedom Amendment, which would add Second Amendment language to Iowa’s constitution, in November and he’s encouraging his fellow Iowans to do the same. The announcement was made on the Iowa Firearms Coalition (IFC) Facebook page during a broadcast of their weekly video podcast, #2A4IA Warrior Wednesday. 
“It’s something that is near and dear to my heart,” said Ambassador Branstad. “I just want to encourage all Iowa voters to be sure to turn the ballot over and vote ‘yes’ for that Freedom Amendment.” 
Ambassador Branstad’s endorsement comes on the heels of a recent Iowans for Tax Relief poll that found nearly 60% of Iowans plan to also support the Freedom Amendment. Their findings further showed large support among voters, regardless of which party they were affiliated with.
“Ambassador Branstad spent his career working hard to advance civil rights in Iowa and we welcome his support of the Freedom Amendment,” said IFC President, Dave Funk. “The Freedom Amendment is a nonpartisan issue and it’s passed time that Iowans have the same protections in their state constitution as nearly every other American.”
Similar versions to Iowa’s proposed Freedom Amendment have already been adopted by nearly every other state in the Union. Only New York, Minnesota, New Jersey, Maryland, California and Iowa do not have one.
