****May 14, 2021 Updates*****
The 2021 General Legislative Season is now over. With the hard work and effort of many, H.B. 60, Permit-less Carry, was passed.
We are now moving into a Special Legislative Session and your help is needed to make sure a Bill to make Utah a 2A Sanctuary is placed on the agenda. Please review the information below and take action now.
Please join our Utah Gun Exchange People’s Voice Rapid Response Team and let your voice be heard in person. Read below for action Phase Information and Updates or e-mail us at [email protected] and let us know you’d like to join the Utah Gun Exchange People’s Voice Rapid Response Team.
UGE has been developing and implementing a methodical, deliberate plan of action to ensure that Utah remains a 2nd Amendment friendly state. We are unfolding our plan in several phases and will continue to keep you abreast of upcoming events, action items, info on Gun Bills Introduced, 2A Sanctuary activity, etc. We cannot be successful without YOU.
PHASE 1 – Now Complete. Thank you for those who attended.

- Use the excitement of the rally to get volunteers to take further action by contacting their Representatives and Senators (Phase 2) and attending our GUNS SAVE LIVES UTAH EVENT (Phase 3).
PHASE 2 – UNDERWAY. Please do this if you haven’t already. Please repeat as often as you can.

- The People’s Voice Rapid Response Team(s) (small groups of volunteers capable of gathering at the Capitol at short notice to show a presence at critical times). The People’s Voice Rapid Response Team(s) are critical! We want to use this method to apply pressure while Bills are in Committee to let your voice be heard at such a critical time. This is your opportunity to voice your opinion and help stop or promote legislation that can limit or enhance your 2nd Amendment rights. Your voice may be the one to convince them and your presence will be a loud voice of its own.
PHASES 5 – UNDERWAY NOW.
- Outreach to every County Commission, County Sheriff, state Representative and state Senator on the 2A Sanctuary County issue.
