    I need everybody's help today. I've never asked for a favor from any GTer in my life, but this is important. Call up your state representative and ask him or her to vote against SB 251. This is a bill to restrict concealed carry at universities. I don't think I need to explain my opposition to this infringement to any here.

    Read more about the bill here: http://www.utahshootingsports.com/

    Find your representative here: http://www.le.state.ut.us/house/index.htm

    We can kill this bill, but it will take all of us.

    I think the latest news has been that the bill was gutted.

    The only part that remains involves the dorm issue and residents having the ability to not be roomed with CCW holder if they choose not to.

    Is there a way to view the current wording
    that the House would be voting on?

    As long as it doesn't pass before midnight tonight,
    we're in the clear, right?

    It's still an infringement; and I am still against it.

    Is there a way to see the bill's scheduled vote online?

    If it passes the house, it still has to go to conference committee. If it dies on the floor, we're rid of it for almost a year.

    Legislature is closed.

    Did it pass?

    Yes it passed. They have no way of enforcing it though since the CCW list is closed.

    From what I heard the bill also allows a student to mark their room a "no gun zone" and enforce it as long as they provide their own metal detectors and security.:rofl:

    No kidding?

    Good luck then. Sounds like it's become more of a feel-good measure than anything that will really hamper CCWers.

    Still, it's another paper cut, another law on the books to slowly bleed liberty dry.

    Thanks to all that actively engaged themselses this legislative session. Imagine how bad it could have been.

    Sounds like a joke, still I wish they had just fought them for a no change. But I guess it came down to just getting them to shut up and go away and stop wasting state money on this nonsense.

    For some reason I can picture some girly guy wearing girl clothes and a belly shirt holding a metal detector scanning everyone and a No Gun sign on his door, he can probably use it as an excuse to feel guys up :upeyes: Heck one could “borrow” his sign and his wand and use it on girls! (Kidding mostly ;) )
    I wonder if one could ask for a non liberal roommate.
    :tongueout:

    I think someone might need to abuse this nonsense. :thumbsup:

    I'd bet everything from a damned-if-I-know to a diddle-eyed Joe that this isn't the end, but that they'll reintroduce the original bill next session. Instead of putting this thing down, our congresscrtters have already shown their desire to "compromise" with the socialists.

    Hell if you can ask for a non gun packing roommate why can't you ask for a packing one? It might be nice having a roommate that you have something to talk about. Liberals could see this as their idea backfiring; “Oh noes, they are teaming up! Hurry get back in the liberal mobile (VW of some sort, probably a Jetta or bus painted up with perdy flowers and rainbows) and head back to frisko!”
