    Sen. Madsen's SB 157, Rights of Citizens to Carry Firearms in Declared Emergency (aka "Katrina RKBA") is up for its first committee hearing tomorrow morning. It is second on the agenda for the 8:00 am meeting of the Senate Judiciary, Law Enforcement, and Criminal Justice Standing Committee, in room W130 in the West Office Building, directly north of the capital.

    This bill will provide additional safeguards to prevent the government from banning the possession of firearms during declared emergencies.]

    Bill info can be found at <>

    GOUtah! is supporting this bill and encourages you to support it as well.

    This is not a particularly RKBA friendly committee and so your support is very much needed.

    If you are able, please attend the hearing in support of the bill. I always encourage those attending the legislature to wear "urban cammo" which ideally consists of business casual attire. In any event, please avoid T-shirts (especially those with the stereotypical political statements on them), baseball caps, and other very informal attire.

    Please contact the members of the Senate Judiciary, Law Enforcement, and Criminal Justice Standing Committee]today and ask them to support SB 157. Full contact info for committee members can be found at <>. As always, we encourage polite communications with elected officials.

    Committee members are:
    Sen. Gregory S. Bell, Chair
    Sen. Jon J. Greiner
    Sen. Lyle W. Hillyard
    Sen. Mark B. Madsen
    Sen. Scott D. McCoy
    Sen. Ross I. Romero
    Sen. John L. Valentine

    All experience hath shewn, that mankind are more disposed to suffer, while evils are sufferable, than to right themselves by abolishing the forms to which they are accustomed. Thank heaven we do not permit a few to impose anarchy.

    "With Anarchy as an aim and as a means, Communism becomes possible."

    "Communism and Anarchy [are], a necessary complement to one another. "
    --PETER KROPOTKIN, "Anarchism: its philosophy and ideal." 1898.
