The Iowa Firearms Coalition is sponsoring Lobby Day at the Iowa Capitol on February 27th.  We will meet in room 15 of the Capitol Building from 10 am-11 am.  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 noon to 4 pm.  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 a block to the west of the State House.  Walking into the West or South lower levels is simple and fast.  Room G15 can be found on this map.  Let us know you’re coming if you can by responding to this event link: Event Link.  (not mandatory, but it does help us keep count and keep you updated as we get closer to the date)

We will also have a 2A Dinner in partnership with the NRA at the Machine Shed on Wednesday Feb 26th (night before lobby day) from 6:30-8:00 PM. We would love to see you there!

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.
