2A Sanctuary County ****Volunteer****Get Involved****

Work with us March 12, 2020

As the 2020 Utah Legislative season is winding down, we can now focus on the next phase of our plan. We now feel it is appropriate to ask you to turn your attention to helping make every county in Utah a 2A Sanctuary.

To all of our volunteers, we greatly appreciate your help in fighting the legislation that would have further infringed on our 2nd Amendment rights and in supporting the legislation that further enhances our 2nd Amendment rights.

UGE has been working behind the scenes to implement a grassroots movement in Utah to help counties become 2A Sanctuaries. We have been in contact with the VCDL (Virginia Citizen’s Defense League, the group that successfully helped citizens mobilize and turn counties 2A in Virginia)…. We can do this too!   They have 90 counties; we only have 29 (and as of today, 6 are now 2A Sanctuary, with several more in the process).

We have done a ton of leg work; gathering and compiling information such as   contact info for Commission and Sheriffs offices, calling & emailing them to get updates on current 2A activity, etc.   We have set up a recommended step-by-step process for you to use as a guide in your county.

We have reached out to the UGE People’s Rapid Response Team and other volunteers to begin forming 2A volunteer groups in each county.    We will be working to connect people by county.   We will be here, behind the scenes, helping each coordinator and or group as needed and getting updated information to you, and from you. You will not have to do everything by yourself…. There will be help and support!

But now we need your help. We are all equal stakeholders in Utah!   If we all do a little, we will all benefit a lot!

If you want to volunteer, please do the following:

  1. Email us back and let us know what county you want to help with and what county you live in.
  2. Let us know if you want to be a County Coordinator OR assistant (coordinator must have a Facebook page).
  3. Send us the URL link to your Facebook page; this will help us connect you with other group members in your county.
  4. Provide your phone number and email address.
  5. Request to join our Facebook Group, Utah Gun Exchange Community: https://www.facebook.com/groups/155430211839647/
  6. Go to the 2A Information page on Utah Gun Exchange: https://utahgunexchange.com/2a-sanctuary-movement/ to read the step by step process and check the status of your county.

This 2 A page on Utah Gun Exchange is our centralized information page.   When you obtain new information on 2A county status in your area, you can post that information on the UGE Community Page. We will consolidate that info and update the 2A page with it.

So:

  1. Anytime you want to check on your county status, you will simply go to the 2A page on UGE: https://utahgunexchange.com/2a-sanctuary-movement/

 

  1. Anytime you have new information about 2A activity, Commission Meetings, etc. in your county, you will simply go to the UGE Community Facebook page, https://www.facebook.com/groups/155430211839647/ and post that information.

We appreciate your help! We are happy to be able to provide some of the tools for you to use; but YOU are ultimately the ones that will make this happen in your county.

Thank you for your commitment and your resolve to keep our Constitutional Rights in Utah.

We want to thank each and every person that came out to the Rally at the State Capitol on Saturday Feb. 8th 2020!   We had an amazing turn out & tons of volunteers, and we cannot thank you enough.   We will be posting some powerful pictures that have been sent in.  It really was a great day.

That being said, NOW is the time to take further action!  We have our Legislator’s attention, let’s remind them they can be voted out if they do not listen to their constituents.

ACTION ITEM 1

Beginning today, we are asking each and every one of you to take a few minutes to call/text AND email/mail letters to your Representatives letting them know that if they do ANYTHING to infringe on your Second Amendment Rights, that they will NOT have your vote in the future.  Tell them that you oppose:

  • Red Flag Laws
  • Universal Background Checks
  • Elimination of Private Transfers
  • Anything that would further infringe on your Second Amendment Rights

Here is how you can EASILY find your Representatives and their CONTACT INFO to send them these messages:

  2. Enter your street address & zip code
  3. Click on the Representative and Senator’s Names that are displayed

Info On The Proposed Legislation From our Friends at the NRA 02/04/2020

“The Utah Legislature began its 2020 legislative session last Monday, and anti-gun lawmakers are already introducing numerous gun control bills.  It is important that gun owners and sportsmen across Utah stay actively involved in these issues throughout 2020.

Multiple gun control measures have already been introduced and your legislators need to hear from you.

House Bill 109 bans most firearm sales and transfers between private individuals without first paying fees and obtaining government permission.  Firearm sales between friends or neighbors would not be exempted.  This proposal would have no impact on crime and is completely unenforceable.

House Bill 115 defines “firearm custodian” and makes them liable for the illegal actions of others.  This measure could make law-abiding gun owners liable if their firearms were stolen and then used in a crime, shifting the responsibility from criminals to law-abiding individuals.

House Bill 136 creates a blanket requirement that all firearms be locked and stored in a manner where an unauthorized or prohibited person would be unable to access them.  Gun safety and storage is a matter of personal responsibility and every person’s situation is different.  It is unreasonable for the law to impose a one-size-fits-all solution.  In short, this measure invades people’s homes and forces them to render their firearms useless for self-defense or become criminals.

House Bill 229 is an extreme “red flag” gun confiscation measure that authorizes the seizure of firearms and ammunition from individuals without sufficient due process.  Anti-gun lawmakers have introduced this measure to damage the Second Amendment rights of Utahans.  Bills similar to this one have been introduced in a number of other states, wholly supported by gun control organizations and the lawmakers they have invested in.

Constitutional rights should only be restricted with sufficient due process of law.  The Right to Keep and Bear Arms should not be treated as a second-class right and should only be restricted when due process protections are in place.

It is more important than ever for Utah NRA Members and Second Amendment supporters to contact their lawmakers in opposition to this gun control agenda.  The 2020 Session is short and bills will move very quickly.”

***** UPDATE ON JULY 14 EVENT******UGE PRESS RELEASE*****

Event July 11, 2018

We wanted to let  you know that the March For Our Lives Event has been canceled again.   We are doing our best to keep you informed and up to date as these changes occur.  

UGE Co-Owner, Sam Robinson, has just put out the Press Release below.   Please read and please share this with our community!    We need to get this information out.  Thank you for your support! Please share.

PRESS RELEASE

July 11, 2018 for Immediate Release

With MegaPlex Cancellation, Utah Gun Exchange welcomes March For Our Lives / Road to Change, to Utah and to use its facilities

UtahGunExchange.com is concerned to hear that March For Our Lives SLC has had to cancel its event due to the loss of their venue.  We respect the rights of private property owners, the Larry H. Miller Group, and MegaPlex Theatres to determine how their property is utilized.  We also recognize the First Amendment rights that allow us to engage each other in civil dialogue.

We reaffirm our invitation to the March For Our Lives team to Utah.  We have a facility that can accommodate the March For Our Lives event, and it’s ready to go.  As it has been claimed that there are threats from “outside groups” of “escalation” – escalation which we do not condone – we are happy to add value to our original offer and pay for additional security to ensure safe and peaceful dialogue at our location.  We want safe students.  We want safe schools.  We support everyone’s Constitutional right to peaceably assemble and we will do everything we can to ensure that March For Our Lives can assemble safely.

Furthermore – we have been miscategorized by some local media outlets as a counter-protest to this Town Hall event.   We have had many successful interactions with March For Our Lives, and we were invited to their event specifically by them.  Accordingly, we have encouraged our community to attend this important discussion peacefully and to show our support for the common goal of keeping our children safe in schools.  We appreciate March For Our Lives inviting us to their public event and are happy to engage in all dialogue that will help us move towards that common goal.

March For Our Lives team – please contact us at [email protected] to coordinate as quickly as possible so we can assure your event’s location.  If our location doesn’t meet your needs, we hope your invitation for us to attend your event remains open to continue the productive dialogue that we have had with you around the country as was the case today in Kissimmee, Florida with the National Producer for The March For Our Lives.
