Judge Orders Prominent Utah Gun Lobbyist To Surrender Firearms


A district court judge on Tuesday ordered prominent Utah gun lobbyist Clark Aposhian to remove all firearms from his home, office and on his person, according to the Salt Lake Tribune.

Domestic violence charges are pending against Aposhian, who allegedly drove an army surplus truck onto his ex-wife’s property on Memorial Day and threatened to “run over” her husband.

In court Tuesday, Aposhian said he understood the charges and plead not guilty.

Aposhian chairs the Utah Shooting Sports Council and stirred controversy nationwide when he held free concealed-carry classes to arm Utah educators in the wake of the Sandy Hook, Conn. elementary school shooting.

The Tribune previously reported that Aposhian may have to step down from his chair position if convicted.
