IFC president comments on failure of omnibus gun bill

Second AmendmentBy The Iowa Statesman


With the 2015 legislative session now in the books, Iowa Firearms Coalition president Barry Snell commented on the failure of the General Assembly to pass the omnibus gun bill. In his comments, he laid blame solely on the shoulders of Senate Democratic leadership.

“Everything was going well until the Senate Democrat leadership got their hands on our bill,” he said.  “And it is because of the Senate Democrat leadership’s distinct lack of leadership, because of their bucking the national trend, because of their disregard for their own caucus, the Republican caucus, and several upstanding and respected organizations in this state, because of all of this our bill failed.  If we can’t even get the simple stuff passed, how are we going to make progress on the big stuff?  Shame on them.”
