Home > Alerts & Updates > Update for 9/10/2013: Utah Veteran Challenges Police Chiefs to Debate

"Man did not enter into society to become worse than he was before, nor to have less rights than he had before, but to have those rights better secured. His natural rights are the foundation of all his civil rights." — Thomas Paine, Rights of Man, Part I, 1791, as found in Thomas Paine Collected Writings, p. 464.
Utah Veteran Challenges Police Chiefs to Debate

(Update for 9/10/13):  Letters to news editors comprise another means of making your voice heard.  Recently, Cory Green of Bountiful, wrote a letter to the Davis Clipper, citing our alert, "Utah Police Chiefs Overwhelmingly Support Gun Control".  He also challenged any police chief to a public debate. Here is his letter (click here to read it at the Davis Clipper site):


I encourage all readers of this to go to the following link: utgunrights.com/alertsupdates/2013/alert060313.htm. Local police chiefs sent a letter to Gov. Gary Herbert, and then push for accountability with local city mayors, as I fully intend on doing.

I will gladly debate publicly anyone of these police chiefs on HB76 and about why citizens should have the right to carry their guns secretly without a permit. I am calling out the following police chiefs for their lack of regard to the constitutional rights and responsibilities they have to “we the people” which all of these men swore in front of their city councils and Mayors to “uphold and defend” and each of them failed to.  As a reminder, anyone can open carry without a background check under current law.

It is a malicious violation of the 14th Amendment to tell concealed carry holders they can’t have the same right as “those who open carry”.

The following wrote to Gov. Herbert asking him to veto our rights to carry concealed with no permit or payment to Utah: Chief Tom Ross of Bountiful Police, Chief Todd Hixon of West Bountiful, Chief Greg Butler of Woods Cross, Chief Craig Black of North Salt Lake, Chief Sol Oberg of Kaysville and Chief Neal Worsley of Centerville, in addition to the chiefs of Layton, Syracuse, Clearfield, and Farmington.

Letters signed by each Chief quote that, “We are worried that the potential enactment of HB76, abridges the ability of public safety officers from responding to the concerns of our residents and businesses.”

In other words, allowing the 2nd Amendment rights to the citizens of Utah and Davis County somehow abridges their ability to do their jobs. If that’s the case, then these chiefs and their officers need to go back through the Academy for further training and need to go to their mayors and city council members and be accountable for their failed promise and oath, to “support and defend the Constitution of the United States.”

From a local Patriot and Veteran,

Cory Green
