Celebrate Gary "BB Gun Background Checks" Herbert's "Excitement"

Alert for 4/26: Last Saturday, Republican state delegates voted to send Gary "BB Gun Background Checks" Herbert to a primary election on June 28th.

Herbert managed to receive only 45 percent of the vote to relative political newcomer Jonathan Johnson's 55 percent.

In the spirit of Herbert's newfound "excitement", feel free to print and continue sharing a flier exposing his public endorsement of background checks for BB guns by clicking here.

Alert for 4/8: How did your house and senate statutators and Gary "BB Gun Background Checks" Herbert perform?

March 22 Neighborhood Precinct Caucus Meetings

Alert for 3/18: The "Constitution", "Democrat", and "Republican" political parties will be holding neighborhood precinct caucus meetings on March 22 (this Tuesday).  The "Independent American" and "Libertarian" political parties will be holding their equivalent meetings on April 23.  To learn more, click here.

SB 88 (Gun Control by Bureaucrats) Awaiting Final House Vote

Alert for 3/8: Senate Bill 88 reauthorizes numerous "administrative rules" created by bureaucrats (i.e. unelected officials) that have the same effect as state statute.  These include gun controls and other subversions of your natural rights.

This bill is particularly significant in that it demonstrates the lackadaisical, lazy, and compliant nature of Utah's supposed "gun rights champions".  Rather than rein in the bureaucrats, they prefer to carte blanche approve their corruption.

SB 88 passed Wayne Niederhauser's senate, passed house bully Greg Hughes' hand-picked operations committee, and awaits a final vote on the house floor.  To read the threat briefing, click here.

HJR 8: Convention to Finish Destroying the U.S. Constitution

(Alert for 2/23): House Joint Resolution 8 calls for a convention of the states, with delegates likely apportioned and chosen by the corrupt federal congress.  These delegates could rewrite or abolish the U.S. constitution and its "Bill of Rights" to include the right to keep and bear arms. Convention decisions could be ratified by whoever and however the delegates choose; entirely bypassing the state legislatures if they desire.

HJR passed house bully Greg Hughes' hand-picked committee, and awaits a final vote on the house floor.  To read the threat briefing, click here.

HB 67 (Reduce Penalty for Firearms on Buses) Awaiting Final Senate Vote

(Alert for 2/18/16): HB 67 eliminates the third degree felony penalty for carrying a firearm on a bus without a government concealed carry "permit".  All other open or concealed carry statutory restrictions would still apply. UT Gun Rights supports this bill as a baby step in the right direction.

HB 67 passed the house, senate committee, and awaits a final vote on the senate floor.  To read the bill briefing, click here.

SB 43 (Forcing Gun Control Down Kids' Throats) Flies through Senate

(Alert for 2/16/16): Senate Bill 43 creates a pilot program to indoctrinate 8th grade government school students regarding "firearm safety and violence prevention", which is code for gun control.

The Utah attorney general's office will "collaborate" with the state board of education, both notorious gun control advocates, in unilaterially setting the curriculum and choosing the instructors.

SB 43 flew through the senate and is now in house bully Greg Niederhauser's hand-picked rules committee.  To read the SB 43 threat briefing, click here.

SB 97 (Carry "Unloaded" Firearms Concealed) Killed by Its Own Sponsor

(Alert for 2/11/16): Senate bully Wayne Niederhauser called SB 97 sponsor David Hinkins to a secret meeting.  Hinkins was pressured to abandon his bill and promptly killed it without a fight.  To see a briefing on SB 97, click here.

For more information on Hinkins' surrender, see his Bloomberg's Busy Bees quote by clicking here.

Policy Note: Because of the constant games being played year after year with bills like SB 97 that are only a marginal improvement over the status quo, UT Gun Rights will no longer consider permitless carry bills with an "unloaded" requirement to be "Good" bills. 

Announcing the 2016 Utah Government Corruption Report

(Alert 1/25/16): Learn how your house and senate statutators, and Executive Monarch Gary "BB Gun Background Checks" Herbert, betrayed you.

This report demonstrates how Utah’s culture of political corruption operates, and how gun owners are played for fools.

Only a highly-informed community can overcome the manipulation, deception, and fraud underlying this “pay-to-play” society.

Park City Councilor Liza Simpson Buzzes at Being Forced to End Gun Control

(Update 9/15/15): Gun control commando and former New York mayor Michael Bloomberg, co-founder of Mayors Against Illegal Guns, enjoys plenty of support amongst Utah's wanna-bee elitists.

Take Park City councilor Liza Simpson, who was stung that her city must repeal several gun control codes to comply with state statute.

Read her remark, and ponder why an out-of-state organization had to do attorney general Sean "Rambo" Reyes' job, by clicking here.

 

 

Past Revelations...

While Herbert Swoons Over Obama & Signs Gun Control Bills, Kansas Enacts Permitless Concealed Carry

(Update 4/6/15): No, this is not a belated April Fools' joke.  On April 2, 2015, Utah's Executive Monarch Gary "BB Guns Background Check" Herbert spent some quality pandering time with notorious abuser of innocent gun owners, federal regime president Barack Obama.  As reported in the previous April 2 update, Herbert also just finished signing gun control and other unethical bills into statute.

Contrast Herbert's pandering to Obama and their shared gun control agenda with Kansas governor Sam Brownback, who, on April 3, 2015, signed SB 45 into statute.  SB 45 ends government attacks against innocent citizens who carry concealed loaded or unloaded without a government "permit". To learn more, click here.

Meet the Two Bullies Who Are Stealing Your Rights

(Update for 3/10/15): In the final hours before the 2015 session ends at Midnight this Thursday (March 12), hundreds of bills most statutators have never read, let alone understand, will be passed in drone-like fashion.  Among these bills will be numerous attacks against your natural rights.

This will not happen by accident.  Two men, house speaker Greg Hughes and senate president Wayne Niederhauser, bully the entire statutarium (i.e. "legislature") and run roughshod over your elected officials.  They set the agenda and your statutators obediently follow it.

How can this happen?  Why do your statutators tolerate such an abusive arrangement?  And what can be done to stop it? To learn more, click here.

Statutator Curtis Oda Collaborates with Gun Control Zealot Gary Herbert

(Update for 2/13/15):  Gun control commando and former New York mayor Michael Bloomberg, co-founder of Mayors Against Illegal Guns, enjoys plenty of support amongst Utah's wanna-bee elites.

Take house statutator Curtis Oda, who has decided to collaborate with anti-gun zealot Gary Herbert.  To read Oda's outrageous remarks, click here.

Statutator Fred Cox Confirms Impact of Last Year's Trojan Horse (HB 276)

(Update for 2/10/15): House statutator Fred Cox has just confirmed what UT Gun Rights warned in its recent update, and in alerts last year.

Referencing HB 276: "Violence Against Open Carry Gun Owners", Cox wrote in his "2015 Voter Questionnaire":

"What did pass in 2014 was a law to require individuals that do 'Open Carry', to have the firearm in a holster or case." [bold added]

This is precisely the attack UT Gun Rights outlined.  Unholstered open carry gun owners will now be targeted for violent harassment and arrest.  Other gun owners will be at increased risk of abuse as well.  For more information, click here.

How Would an Ethical Government Operate?

See UT Gun Rights' Affirmative Agenda

(Alert for 1/13/15): Your right to keep and bear arms is better safeguarded when government officials and agents are tightly restrained by a framework of clear and ethical policies.

These policies must reinforce due process for those accused of criminal activity, punish those who abuse power, and foster an attitude of respect toward you.

Before such a government can exist, these policies must be defined and then promoted.

Toward that objective, UT Gun Rights presents its draft Affirmative Agenda for public input.  To read it, click here.

 

Sheriffs' Association President Whines at UT Gun Rights

(Alert for 1/2/14): Utah Sheriffs' Association president Jim Tracy emailed to contest UT Gun Rights' alert, "Why Did Utah's Sheriffs Oppose HB 76?"

Demonstrating classic politician behavior, Tracy complained, offered to hold a verbal conversation, and then declined to provide written specifics regarding his original objections.

To explore his lamentations, click here.

Why Did Utah's Sheriffs Oppose HB 76?

(Alert for 11/5/13): According to Terry Keefe, president of the Utah Chiefs of Police Association, the Utah Sheriffs' Association also voted to oppose HB 76 S1 (Carry "Unloaded" Firearms Concealed) in the secretive Law Enforcement Legislative Committee.

Thanks to another citizen's GRAMA request, we now reveal Keefe's email exchange.

To uncover their betrayal, click here.

Utah Governor Gary Herbert Endorses Background Checks for BB Guns!

(Update for 7/16/13): Gun control zealot New York mayor Michael Bloomberg, co-founder of Mayors Against Illegal Guns, enjoys plenty of support amongst Utah's wanna-bee elites.  Take governor Gary Herbert, for example, who recently endorsed background checks for BB guns.  To read his outrageous quote and hear the audio, click here.

Legislators Hid Behind Herbert's Veto of HB 76

(Alert for 6/25/13): We've suggested that some legislators only voted for HB 76 S1 (Carry Unloaded Firearms Concealed) with the understanding that governor Herbert would veto it. 

Well, don't just take our word for it. Thanks to a citizen GRAMA request, we now present email correspondence between representative Spencer Cox and Mike Mower, governor Herbert's Deputy for Community Outreach.  In it, Cox confirms our analysis.

Courts of InJustice versus Clark Aposhian

(Update for 6/17/13):  Here we expose how this Government subverts fair trials and the consequences of this subversion for Clark Aposhian.  Specifically, Aposhian faces a system in which:

* unreasonable seizures occur,
* the right to Counsel is effectively denied,
* the right to a public trial by an impartial jury is obstructed, and
* deprivation of life, liberty, and property may occur without authentic due process of law.

To read this update, click here.

Utah Police Chiefs Overwhelmingly Support Gun Control

(Alert for 6/3/13): The saga of betrayal continues.  Police chiefs throughout the state of Utah, many with overt or implied backing of their mayors and city councils, implored governor Herbert to veto HB 76 S1.

To learn more, click here.

Why Would the USSC Chair Privately Lobby Against HB 76 S1?

(Alert for 5/21/13): A fundamental tactic of the anti-gun lobby is to manufacture false friends for you.

Always be apprehensive about those who tell you things you want to hear. 

To read a revealing communication between USSC Chair, Clark Aposhian, and governor Herbert's Deputy for Community Outreach, Mike Mower, click here.
