"Good Bills, Bad Bills Page" & State Legislative Priorities
As you probably know, the Utah state
legislature convenes tomorrow, January 28.
We have created a "2013
Good Bills, Bad Bills Page" to assist citizens in
tracking state legislation that may impact your right to
keep and bear arms. "Refresh" the page frequently, as
things can happen very quickly.
If you have not already done so,
sign up for free email alerts and updates. We will
attempt to email you with the most critical of information
as we are able.
UT Gun Rights has selected the following five
state legislative priorities:
* Criminalize the enforcement of any federal
gun statutes or "executive orders" by federal and local law
enforcement. Wyoming and Montana have already enacted tough
provisions to do so.
* Amend Utah's constitutional definition of militia to
include ALL adult men and to introduce women (they are
currently excluded). Include a stipulation that Utah militia
— organized or unorganized — be free to own any firearms
equivalent to what the Utah National Guard is allowed.
* Eliminate the requirement to obtain a government "license"
in order to carry a concealed weapon. Several states (AK,
AZ, VT, WY) have done this and others are attempting it.
Carrying your firearm — concealed or openly — is your right,
NOT a bureaucrat-sanctioned privilege.
* Keep the Utah Bureau of Criminal Identification office
open 24-hours a day, so that people can purchase guns
whenever they wish to; thus minimizing the impact of federal
gun control background check requirements. The right to buy
and sell firearms does not end at 7pm.
* Affirm the essence of the Utah Sheriffs' Association's
recent letter to the Obama regime through a joint resolution
of the Utah state house and state senate. Specifically, that
the government and people of Utah are prepared to physically
resist any effort to undermine the traditional
interpretation of the Bill of Rights — particularly the
right to keep and bear arms.
