The Iowa Firearms Coalition is sponsoring Lobby Day at the Iowa Capitol on February 25th.  We will meet a the east and west sections of the main rotunda at 1:30 p.m.!

We had so many patriots attend last year that we were cramped! This year we are upping our game and space! We are also excited to talk to you about the 2A bills that have passed and are planned for this session.

We welcome you to please come by, and say hello to your Representatives and Senators.  We will also have informative tables in the rotunda from 1:30 p.m. through 4:30 p.m.  We’ll walk you through 2A engagement best practices, show you how to locate and contact your elected officials, arm you with methods to continue meaningful and persuasive communication with them, and engage in volunteerism and electioneering.

Parking is all around the Capitol building and many use the ramp that is a block to the west of the State House.  Walking into the West or South lower levels is simple and fast.

For those of you interested in a tour of the Capitol, there is a great map and QR-coded tour you can take through the use of your smartphone HERE.  Iowa has a unique and beautiful Capitol Building, so drink it in when you can.  I recommend bringing children to learn about this magnificent structure as often as you can.
