    "Gun Free Zones"
    By Scott Jenkins
    Utah State Senator, District 20

    The idea of a concealed weapon is that no one knows it is there. Ruthless criminals never know who might be armed, which affords society some extra protection. Posting a No Gun Zone removes that doubt. It sends the wrong message to people who would be violent.

    Utah’s concealed weapons program is an excellent one. We have enjoyed a long history of safety with very few infractions.

    In light of the killings at Trolley Square (another "gun free zone" targeted by a gunman), it amazes me the University of Utah and its professors want a gun free zone.

    They are setting themselves up as targets for the very people from which they want to be protected.

    Does Trolley Square have a "no guns here" sign?

    Call the members of the House Rules Committee and tell them that SB 251 should die there. They have the power to leave it alone until Wednesday at midnight. Rep. Stephen Urquhart is the House Rules Committee Chairman. Tell him this bill is no good for Utah.

    What changes took place that make this bill bad now? I must have missed it... Plus GOA just sent me emails telling me to encourage them to move the bill...
