Welcome to the UGE People’s Voice Platform

Please stay tuned to UtahGunExchange.com for Action Alerts designed to help you take effective action in defending your rights.

2020 Legislative Season bills are being tracked and we will provide you with important alerts here and via e-mail when you join our community.

 Please join our Utah Gun Exchange People’s Voice Rapid Response Team and let your voice be heard in person. Read below for action Phase Information and Updates or e-mail us at [email protected] and let us know you’d like to join the Utah Gun Exchange People’s Voice Rapid Response Team.

UGE has been developing and implementing a methodical, deliberate plan of action to ensure that Utah remains a 2nd Amendment friendly state.   We are unfolding our plan in several phases and will continue to keep you abreast of upcoming events, action items, info on Gun Bills Introduced, 2A Sanctuary activity, etc.   We cannot be successful without YOU.

PHASE 1 – Now Complete. Thank you for those who attended.

  • Support and attend the UGE Co-Sponsored and Promoted Multi-Organizational Pro 2A Freedom Rally Feb 8th
  • Use the excitement of the rally to get volunteers to take further action by contacting their Representatives and Senators (Phase 2) and attending our GUNS SAVE LIVES UTAH EVENT (Phase 3).

PHASE 2 – UNDERWAY. Please do this if you haven’t already. Please repeat as often as you can.

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

PHASE 3 – Now Complete.

  • Attend our GUNS SAVE LIVES UTAH EVENT

Talk with your Representative and Senator and let your voice be heard.

  • Continue to build our volunteer base and community reach through email blasts and Social Media Posts
  • GUNS SAVE LIVES event at the Capitol on Feb. 20th

PHASE 4 – UNDERWAY NOW.

  • Join our UGE People’s Voice Rapid Response Team to take further effective action.
  • The People’s Voice Rapid Response Team(s) (small groups of volunteers capable of gathering at the Capitol at short notice to show a presence at critical times).  The People’s Voice Rapid Response Team(s) are critical! We want to use this method to apply pressure while Bills are in Committee to let your voice be heard at such a critical time. This is your opportunity to voice your opinion and help stop or promote legislation that can limit or enhance your 2nd Amendment rights. Your voice may be the one to convince them and your presence will be a loud voice of its own.

PHASES 5 – UNDERWAY NOW.

Build 2A Sanctuary County awareness and support.

Outreach to every County Commission, County Sheriff, state Representative and state Senator on the 2A Sanctuary County issue.

Provide education on the matters of “resolutions” and “ordnances”.

Currently building and organizing volunteer structures for every county in Utah.

PHASES 6 and 7

**UPDATE** VICE News is covering UGE Saturday Meet-and-Greet and UGE co-owner Sam Robinson

Uncategorized July 13, 2018

UtahGunExchange.com is pleased to report that the popular national media outlet VICE News has contacted UGE to feature its community, and to shadow Sam and the UGE team Saturday, July 14th in Utah. We appreciate this historic opportunity for the national gun control conversation to be taking place right here in our home state. We hope that this will subsequently lead to prolonged exposure and coverage of the 2nd Amendment community – to move beyond sound-bytes – and to present a Constitution-based understanding of American rights, school safety, and the pro-gun perspective.

As a reminder, we will be meeting in Sandy tomorrow, Saturday, July 14th @ 4:00 PM (before the MFOL event) for a Freedom Rally at 9498 S 670 W, Sandy, UT 84092. Please click on the link below for directions to our facility:

Sam Robinson, co-owner of UGE, will say a few words at 4:30PM. The March For Our Lives event starts at 5:30PM for priority seating ticket holders, and all others at 6:00PM. Please be respectful if you choose to attend and peaceably participate as we work to find common ground together.

The following information is directly from the MFOL / Venue information statement:

“Please note that this will be a gun-free event, and firearms will not be allowed inside the hall where the event is held.”
