Just passing along the information

*** A Special Message from Sarah Thompson,
Executive Director of Utah Gun Owners Alliance ***

Dear Fellow American:

It happened in Nazi Germany about 60 years ago.

It happened in Australia in 1996.

It happened in England in 1997.

It has even happened in New York City, New York.

Now it's coming to California.

First, gun registration. Then, gun confiscation.

Will Utah be next?

In our state legislature, anti-gunners are still on the offensive toward
their goal of a complete ban on private firearms ownership.

As you may know, Utah Gun Owners Alliance is the no-compromise gun rights
lobby organization supported by hundreds of pro-gun friends across Utah -
and even other states.

Our position on gun control is: It's not Constitutional. And to make sure
politicians get the message, we work with grass roots pro-gun activists.

Utah Gun Owners Alliance and our members have no problem saying to the
legislators who want to sell out our rights, "Don't tread on me and my gun

At the Capitol, and elsewhere, Utah Gun Owners Alliance fights legislative
battles to protect your gun rights.

However, sometimes the best defense is a good offense.

Utah Gun Owners Alliance staff and members have been working with state
legislators to repeal laws that force gun owners to get a permission slip
in order to carry a gun concealed.

We are on the offensive to push for a "Vermont-style" concealed carry law
that simply says every law abiding citizen has the right to carry a gun
concealed. There are no government hoops, no fingerprints, no mandatory
training classes, no forms, no licenses, and no fees.

This is Utah Gun Owners Alliance's position: NO GUN CONTROL ALLOWED. PERIOD.

Now it's time to take that aggressive offensive approach to reclaiming our
gun rights to the legislative battles in our upcoming legislative session.

Will you join the effort?


E-mail Alert participants receive timely communication alerts via e-mail
when there are bills or other actions being considered in our state capital.

As a participant, you'll get the facts you need to let the politicians know
just where you -- the pro-gun voter -- stand and what the politician must do.

Your action will apply pressure to legislators when they need it the most.
Together with other gun rights supporters, you and I can make legislators
"feel the heat" until they "see the light."

It is true that petitioning an elected official is a powerful legislative tool.

Elected officials fear angry voters. That is why grass roots action is so
powerful. It reminds elected officials that they are there to serve the
people and will be held accountable by the people.

This approach WORKS! As a result of Utah Gun Owners Alliance's efforts, 21
anti-gun politicians retired or were removed from office last year,
including such anti-gun ideologues as Rep. Dave Jones and Sen. Scott
Howell. And only 5 of 17 anti-gun bills passed.

We can do better. But when push comes to shove, politics is a numbers game.

Hundreds mean more than tens, and thousands mean more than hundreds.

That is why I am asking you to subscribe, right now, to Utah Gun Owners
Alliance's E-Mail Alerts. Each person counts. You can make the difference.

It's easy to subscribe. Here's how:

Send an e-mail message to [email protected]

After you send Utah Gun Owners Alliance a request to subscribe, you should
shortly thereafter receive a confirmation e-mail from our office.

If you encounter any difficulties, please let me know at [email protected]

After that, you will receive alerts as they become necessary.

I hope that you will subscribe to Utah Gun Owners Alliance's E-Mail
Alerts. As you can tell, there is nothing to lose -- it is a free
service. All I ask is that you try to take the requested action in the
alerts you receive. The volume of mail is very low -- this is not a news

Also, please know that your e-mail address will remain confidential.

If you would like more information you may call our main phone number
801-566-1625 and request an information brochure on Utah Gun Owners
Alliance or you may e-mail your request to: [email protected]

You may also visit our Web Site at Make sure you
read our 2000 Year in Review to learn more about our fight for our gun rights.

I look forward to hearing from you.

Outstanding group!! I joined, as we need a group like that here in Idaho. Most people here take our "gun Rights" for granted, yet there is a dedicated group of gun grabbing Marxist oriented bliss ninnies, working like maggots under a dead body, to take away our Rights and Freedom.

I'm talking with some people about getting an active org together to fight the way they are in Utah.

Thanks for the site. J.B.

And spreading the word.

On another Utah note: any word on the AOL suit?

I haven't heard anything new at all concerning AOL. I'll see if I can find anything new though.

Thanks CIE - I'll pass it on to my boys in Utah.

Come to think of it, I'm only 39 miles from their border . . .

And, we gotta turn this around: ". . . only 5 of 17 anti-gun bills passed." I'd like to see us bellyaching that ". . . only 5 of 17 pro-gun bills passed."

And, later on, ". . . only 16 of 17 pro-gun bills passed."
