Make personal safety your superpower!

Can you recognize the nonverbal signals and body language of dangerous people?

Can you decode these nonverbal signals in real time?

YOU are the protector for yourself and your family. YOU are the first line of defense. Understanding nonverbal signals will give you an advantage in any environment, ultimately keeping you and your family safer!

D.I.R.T. Dangerous Individual Recognition Training® is a fascinating exploration into decoding behavior and body language so you can quickly identify a threat. 

The four-hour workshop covers an array of information, including:

  • 4 criteria predators use to choose victims
  • Using your body language to deter threats
  • 10 likely pre-attack body language signals
  • 5 components of personal safety
  • 3 strategies to maximize visual awareness
  • How to improve subconscious bias
  • Steps to reduce inattentional blindness
  • And much, much more!

Body Language | Mindset | Strategy

Terry created D.I.R.T. Dangerous Individual Recognition Training® to engage, empower, and remove the mystery surrounding criminal acts. This workshop places you confidently in charge of your safety by enhancing how you scan and interpret the people around you.

We improve personal safety by mastering three areas of our lives; individual awareness, situational awareness, and environmental awareness. D.I.R.T. will provide you with a foundation of understanding for each of these disciplines and help ensure you stay safe wherever life takes you.

Personal safety and body language can be serious topics but when Terry delivers the information, be prepared to laugh and leave feeling like you have a new superpower!

Terry is a body language leader, speaker, author, and former British Royal Marine Commando, an elite branch of Her Majesty’s Royal Navy.

As the creator of D.I.R.T., Terry has delivered workshops to groups ranging from circuit court judges and law enforcement to Fortune 500 companies, realtors, and executive teams across the nation.

MAKE YOUR VOICE BE HEARD at the GUNS SAVE LIVES EVENT

Event February 11, 2020

 

 Utah Gun Exchange is proud to sponsor and promote the 1st ever GUNS SAVE LIVES UTAH event. Please read below for more information.

 

***Please note that this page will be updated throughout the legislative session. ***

HERE IS WHAT YOU CAN DO TO TAKE ACTION:

  1. Contact your State Representative and Senator (See Action Item 1 Below).
  2. Attend the GUNS SAVES LIVES UTAH event (See Action Item 2 Below).

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:

  1. Go to https://le.utah.gov/GIS/findDistrict.jsp
  2. Enter your street address & zip code
  3. Click on the Representative and Senator’s Names that are displayed
  4. A page will be pulled up with their Mailing Address, Phone Number and Email Address
  5. Email, text, call and write letters to them as often as you can

We cannot let Utah become the next Virginia!   We cannot be apathetic!   Make your voice be heard NOW!

ACTION ITEM 2

Come to the State Capitol

WHEN:

Thursday, February 20th 10:00 AM – 1:00 PM

WHERE:

Utah State Capitol – Hall of the Governors Room below the Capitol Rotunda (this is on the first floor).

WHAT:

We will be meeting and letting our Representatives and Senators know, in person, how we will be voting when it comes to Gun Legislation being presented in Utah.  There will be an official agenda and briefing with the attendees before we do a parade inside the Capitol.  We will take pictures together on the inside stairs in front of the chamber doors of the House of Representatives.  We will also work to meet with our Representatives and Senators while there.

WHAT TO BRING:

Please bring yourself and smile; no signs, flags, etc.
Concealed Carry is requested if a person chooses to carry.  This is a different type of event than what is usually done.  Future events may involve plans for open carry, but not this one.

DRESS CODE:

This event will have a dress code and we ask that you come dressed in CLEAN CASUAL or BUSINESS CASUAL fashion. Uniform blue and white GUNS SAVE LIVES tee shirts and stickers will be provided  to the  attendees  to wear and show our strength, unity and support of the 2nd Amendment
WHAT TO LEAVE BEHIND:
Signs, Flags and other symbols normally seen at a Pro 2A Freedom Rally.

We created a list of Volunteer contact information from the Rally on Feb. 8th for those who want to attend the next event themed GUNS SAVE LIVES.  If you would like to volunteer to attend the GUNS SAVE LIVES event or register for future events and did not sign our volunteer list at the Rally, you can email us at [email protected] and let us know that you want to be on that list. We will be sending out regular updates for future events to everyone on that list.

To keep informed on the status of current 2A-related legislation in Utah, please visit the Utah Shooting Sports Council at:  https://utahshootingsportscouncil.org/219-2/

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.”

Please join us in celebrating our constitutional freedoms that allow us to prevent atrocities and remain free to pursue our lives, liberty and happiness.

The list of speakers scheduled to appear is diverse and impressive. The key note address will be delivered by Clark Aposhian, Chairman of the Utah Shooting Sports Council.
