Date: January 18, 2024
Time: 5:30 PM - 8:30 PM
Venue: Za-Ga-Zig Shrine, Altoona IA
Cost: $100 per ticket

Join fellow firearms enthusiasts and supporters of the Second Amendment for an unforgettable evening of fine dining, inspiring conversation, and unwavering commitment to preserving our fundamental right to self-defense.

Indulge in a mouthwatering prime-rib dinner with all the trimmings, accompanied by lively networking with like-minded individuals and the opportunity to engage in meaningful discussions about the importance of gun rights.

As a special highlight of the evening, we are honored to welcome renowned political activist, author, speaker, competitive shooter, and instructor Gabby Franco. Gabby will share her remarkable journey as the first female shooter to represent Venezuela in the Olympics and her unwavering passion for upholding the Second Amendment.

Hear Gabby's firsthand account of the stark contrast between nations that restrict the right to bear arms and those that protect it. Gain valuable insights into the potential consequences of anti-gun agendas and the importance of safeguarding our Second Amendment rights.

Your generous contribution of $100 per ticket will directly support the IFC-PAC's ongoing efforts to defend and promote gun rights. The IFC-PAC has a proven track record of success in achieving significant victories in protecting our Second Amendment freedoms.

Join us for an evening of camaraderie, inspiration, and action as we stand together in defense of our fundamental right to self-defense.

Together, we can make a difference!

Just over 1 week away from IFC's marquee event of the year! Hope to see a bunch of ARFCOMERs at the Capitol next Thursday the 18th!

There was an anti gun rights protest at the Capitol yesterday in response to the tragedy in Perry and we'd love to have a huge crowd of 2A loving Iowans in attendance to help promote legislation that will help prevent such tragedies.  

If you are interested, IFC has their IFC-PAC dinner later that night in Altoona. Your attendance at these events such as the PAC dinner are what helped us get the "Right to Keep and Bear Arms" Amendment passed!

We need to respond to anti-freedom groups like the one's pictured below who have already expressed their views to the legislators...

Some great changes are in the works but these can only be accomplished with your support.  Come talk to your Representatives from 9am-10am and then stay for the main event in the Rotunda, which starts at 10a and goes until about noon.  I look forward to seeing you there!!!

Today is the day folks. Come out to lobby your Representatives on increasing school safety, getting rid of phony "gun-free zones", etc.  Hear from 2A speakers, while showing your support for pro-freedom measures. Be part of positive change for future generations of Iowans. This rests on all of us doing are part & we need your support today. I look forward to seeing you there!

I guess my $100 dinner turned out to just be a donation as I didn’t make it tonight.  I hope everyone had a great day at the Capitol as well as tonight.

I am sorry you were unable to make the dinner.  Those that could make it past obstacle #1 (the snow), had a great time.  There were live raffles of a suppressor, a rifle, AR500 Targets, etc. An FLP Family Membership was given away.  Attendees got to hear personal accounts from Gabby while dining on a good meal.  I will post up pictures from the day within the next few days.

Well the day started out with about 50 Pro-Palestine/Hamas protestors and about 30 State Troopers... But that is another story altogether.

As far as 2A Day, judging by the number of folks who signed-in, those that filled seats and those that went upstairs to speak to their Representatives...  I would comfortably say about 150.  This is less than previous recent years but you can never control the weather, etc.  There were 80 folks attending the PAC Supper fundraiser that evening (not all of them attended the Capitol event).  This year we are pushing to eliminate phony "gun free zones" and for ways to protect our schools.  

Join & volunteer for IFC!  Just look at all the positive changes within the last several years.
