Utah Your Right to Self-Defense Needs Your Help!

Thursday, February 16, 2006

Please contact members of the State Senate Judiciary Committee immediately!

Senate Bill 24, sponsored by State Senator Mark Madsen (R-13), will allow law abiding citizens to have a loaded and/or concealed self-defense firearm in their car without the need to obtain a concealed weapon permit.  Additionally, under current law it is technically illegal for you to carry a concealed firearm in your home or on your property. SB 24 would clear up this unintended technicality.

When first heard on Wednesday, this bill was met with negative comments from five of the committee members.  They voted to give it further consideration in the Senate Judiciary Committee this Friday, February 17 at 4:00 p.m. in RM W130.

Time is of the essence and four of these five committee members, who are undecided, need to hear from gun-owners in the state of Utah!

Please contact the following members of the Senate Judiciary Committee and ask them to vote ‘Yes’ on SB 24 and send it to the Senate Floor.
