I got this from the USSC and wanted to pass it along. I added it to the other thread, but that one has been going long enough I'm not sure everyone is still following it....

URGENT! GOV. HUNTSMAN NEEDS TO GET MORE PHONE CALLS, FAXES & EMAILS MONDAY!
(Sample email follows discussion)

Even if you contacted his office before, EVERYONE NEEDS TO CONTACT HIS OFFICE AGAIN! This is not the time to hope that someone else will defend YOUR gun rights. This is the time for YOU to pick up the phone, or send an email or a fax, even if you have never done it before. Too many people in the past have depended on the work of others, and that is how gun rights have been last over the years. USSC cannot call for you, YOU need to do it. TODAY!

Gov. Huntsman is expected to sign or veto USSC's two major pro-gun bills (SB 78 and HB 357) sometime in the next 72 hours. We believe that he is calculating how his actions on these bills will affect whatever his next political move might be. So, grassroots pressure now is extremely important. He needs to hear from every gun owner, hunter, and NRA member about these bills, and he needs to hear Monday or no later than Tuesday! You know that powerful business interests and the anti-gun news media are all pressuring him to veto these bills.

Senate Bill 78, will protect your right to lawfully transport and store firearms in your privately-owned, locked motor vehicle while parked in publicly accessible parking lots controlled by your employer or a business you frequent. Three AOL employees in Ogden were fired for that. Eight states have already made such firings illegal, and the Utah Legislature passed SB 78 preventing discrimination against self defense rights in parking lots.

House Bill 357 will make it easier for law-abiding citizens to defend themselves without the need to obtain a concealed weapon permit on their property or in their vehicle.

ACTION REQUIRED:
A. PHONE CALL- Call the nice people at the Governor's office 801-538-1000 and leave the message "Please ask the Governor to approve the gun bills- HB 357 and SB 78."

B. EMAIL OR FAX- Please use the contact form at http://governor.utah.gov/goca/form_comment.html and send him the following message by email; or send by FAX to (801)-538-1528:

Dear Governor Huntsman- Please approve both Senate Bill 78 and House Bill 357, which safeguard individual gun rights in Utah. These are very important improvements in public safety, despite what some opponents may claim. an email with the same message.

Remember, always be polite and courteous.

FURTHER INFORMATION AND TALKING POINTS ON THESE TWO IMPORTANT BILLS-
including a copy of the letter from the NRA to the Governor, and detailed talking points on various aspects of these bills is posted at http://utahshootingsports.com/2009hb357sb78governor.pdf
