URGENT ACTION ALERT-
Governor Cox will be calling the Legislature to meet for a SPECIAL SESSION. We need to ensure that a Second Amendment Protection ("Sanctuary") bill is included.
ACTION NEEDED IMMEDIATELY- Governor Cox is setting the agenda TODAY.
Please call, Tweet, or email the governor's office IMMEDIATELY and tell them:
Dear Governor Cox-
Please include a Second Amendment Protection ("Sanctuary") bill in the Special Session agenda.
Utah needs to join the many other states and counties which have already prohibited using state or local assets to enforce unconstitutional or problematic federal infringements on legal gun ownership protected by the Second Amendment.
Thank you for your leadership in protecting our rights.
PHONE- Governor's office- 801-538-1000 (You will not get the Governor, but a nice staff person, keep your message short and polite.)

DO IT NOW!!!
Our friends in the legislature indicate there is good support for such a bill, and some of their talking points include:
Many states are passing these policies.
None of these bills would prevent the Federal Government from enforcing its own laws.
The Federal government cannot compel states to enforce Federal laws. Printz v. United States (1997).
Heller and McDonald case decision reinforce the individual and state 2nd Amendment right.
The second amendment doesn’t create a right – it protects an existing and unalienable right.
Remember, it may not be possible to stop the Biden Adminstration's anti-gun agenda, but we can minimize the impact on Utah's law abiding gun owners if we get a sanctuary bill passed!
Thank you for your work defending gun rights in Utah!
