If you are interested in preserving our 2nd Amendment Rights, there is a Gun Rally at the Utah State Capitol tomorrow, Saturday January 19th at noon. I plan to attend and would love to visit with you while we are there.
The most common theme to my emails from constituents this week has been about concern of Presidential Executive Orders and Federal Legislation that infringes on our right to keep and bear arms.
As a reminder, the text of the 2nd Amendment is: A well regulated Militia, being necessary to the security of a free State, the right of the people to keep and bear Arms, shall not be infringed.
Rep. Brian Green will be one of the speakers. Rep. Green, of District 57 in Pleasant Grove, has introduced legislation to defend our 2nd Amendment rights and make it a Felony to enforce any federal regulations that infringe on these rights. The title of his bill is "Second Amendment Preservation Act". While the text of the bill has not been released and has not yet been numbered, I have read it and would describe it as being similar to the Wyoming and Texas bills that address the same issue. I am supportive of his bill and plan to be a Co-Sponsor in the House.
I invite you to attend the rally and stay to visit with me about any state issues.
I also invite you to stay vigilant in defending our rights. One of my favorite Thomas Jefferson quotes is "The Price of Freedom is Eternal Vigilance." If you do not stand up to defend your rights, there are plenty of people that would quickly deprive you of them.
