|Whereas:||Under current law in Iowa, gun owners can be sued and prosecuted by criminals simply for defending themselves and their loved ones against a criminal attack; and|
|Whereas:||Under current law in Iowa, even if you survive a violent attack on your life you have no civil protections, which oftentimes results in you having to spend tens of thousands of dollars to defend yourself all over again in the courtroom; and|
|Whereas:||Law-abiding gun owners should be able to exercise their God-given right to self-defense -- without fear of facing prosecution or bankruptcy; and|
|Whereas:||A Stand-Your-Ground law would simply allow law-abiding gun owners in Iowa the right to defend themselves and their loved ones against criminal invasion without facing prosecution; and|
|Therefore:||On behalf of law-abiding gun owners all across the state of Iowa, I urge you to cosponsor and seek record, roll call votes on the Iowa Stand-Your-Ground Bill, with no weakening amendments.|
