I can’t stop thinking about this: Just days after the Boulder mass shooting, a Denver man was pulled over in Nebraska for driving 120 mph. He tells a trooper his neighbors don’t like him, he had a breakdown, quit his job, left the state in his car.

This is where it gets weird...
What does the Nebraska trooper find in this guy’s car? A handgun in his jacket, a loaded AR-15 with an illegal silencer, four other firearms, ammunition, a bulletproof blanket and vest, two brown wigs, and an Air Force costume. They also found weed.…
They arrest him on guns/drug charges. But he’s RELEASED after posting $5,000 bond - after threatening to use his time in jail to “think about getting even with people,” said he’d kill a guard, exposed himself, and threw his poop around.

But I guess they let him keep his guns?

An Iowa gun store refused to sell an AR-15 to a heavily armed Colorado man who alleged he was actually the Boulder mass shooter.

Meanwhile, Iowa lawmakers are trying to eradicate the state’s permitting system. Tell @IAGovernor to VETO the bill. #ialeg…
But wait - there’s more. Just before the man tried to buy an AR-15 in Iowa,he was arrested for driving 120 mph in Nebraska. During a search of his truck, police found five handguns, a loaded AR-15 and illegal silencer, ammo, a bulletproof vest, two wigs and an Air Force costume.
But wait - there’s more. He was released after posting $5,000 bond, even though he told a trooper he’d use his time in jail to “think about getting even with people,” he threatened to kill a guard, he exposed his penis to guards and threw feces from his cell into a common area.

IOWA: your lawmakers are considering two dangerous bills to repeal Iowa’s background check law and to allow people to carry hidden, loaded handguns in public without a permit or safety training.

Text IOWA to 644-33 to OPPOSE these bills. #ialeg…
The gun lobby is spreading misinformation. They say that the background check repeal would improve the system. This is false: this bill will allow people to buy a gun without a background check from unlicensed dealers.
Removing background checks from unlicensed sales will make it easier for convicted felons, domestic abusers and other people prohibited to buy handguns illegally.

🚨 IOWA: yesterday Iowa introduced HF 184, what I think is the WORST, most HORRENDOUS anti-trans bill targeting transgender student-athletes. Here's why it's awful:
(THREAD) #ialeg
Iowa HF 184, being billed as a "Save Women's Sports Act," would require student-athletes to participate in sports based on biological sex. This is similar to other bills introduced this year & last, but Iowa goes above & beyond in who they are targeting. #ialeg
Iowa HF 184 defines an “educational institution” as any public or accredited non-public school, regents institution, community college, or any other institution of higher education that is a member of the @NCAA or @NJCAA. It specifically names both NCAA & NJCAA. #ialeg
