Greetings and Salutations to All my Kith and Kin and All the Ships in Outer Space:

I just received this message from the National Rifle Association alerting me to pending legislation in Utah, which I personally think needs immediate ratification.

Utah, Your Right to Self-Defense Needs Your Help!

Please contact members of the State Senate Judiciary Committee immediately!

Senate Bill 24, sponsored by State Senator Mark Madsen (R-13), will allow law abiding citizens to have a loaded and/or concealed self-defense firearm in their car without the need to obtain a concealed weapon permit.

Additionally, under current law it is technically illegal for you to carry a concealed firearm in your home or on your property.

SB 24 would clear up this unintended technicality. 

When first heard on Wednesday, this bill was met with negative comments from five of the committee members.  

They voted to give it further consideration in the Senate Judiciary Committee this Friday, February 17 at 4:00 p.m. in RM W130.

Time is of the essence and four of these five committee members, who are undecided, need to hear from gun-owners in the state of Utah!

Please contact the following members of the Senate Judiciary Committee and ask them to vote 'Yes' on SB 24 and send it to the Senate Floor.

Senator Al Mansell (R-9)
Senator Lyle Hillyard (R-25)
Senator Mike Dmitrich (D-27)
Senator Gregory Bell, Vice Chairman (R-22)

All members of the Senate can be reached by calling Capitol switchboard at (801) 538-1035.  

The fax number for all Senators at the Capitol is (801) 326-1475

To find further contact information please use the


Oh, if only we could have that same degree of personal liberty in the rest of the United States, particularly here in Washington, D.C.!

Oh, how much safer we might feel!

If you wish, you may relay this message to others.

But, if you do, please be considerate and conceal the identities of your individual recipients, in order to preserve their privacy.

Also, instead of merely forwarding an e-mail, it's better to copy or cut the text from this message and then paste it into a brand new blank e-mail.

This topic is sufficiently important that I am also posting this in my blog, as well as at the various Internet discussion groups which I participate in.

Thank you.
