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 workwithus@utahgunexchange.com 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.
