West Burlington’s Mayor refers to Gun Owners in Iowa as “Nut Jobs”

Tuesday, July 13, 2010

This past week, in response to an NRA letter opposing the City of West Burlington’s “firearm ban” ordinance, Mayor Trousil said: “That’s too bad… they need to sit in our chairs and worry about these nut jobs that go around with guns.”  Why does Mayor Trousil think that Iowans, who decide to exercise their rights and lawfully carry or possess a firearm to defend themselves and their family, are “nut jobs?”

Let Mayor Hans Trousil know that you want him to defend your Second Amendment rights by obeying the state preemption law and overturn the “firearm ban” ordinance.
