HB114, The Second Amendment Preservation Act, is up for an important committee hearing and vote in Utah – and needs your support to move forward.
The bill would nullify federal violations of the 2nd Amendment in the State of Utah. It has been heard in the House Committee on Judiciary and is expected to have a do-or-die vote in that committee in the coming days.
The Tenth Amendment Center requests your immediate help by contacting committee members to express your support for this legislation. We urge you to CALL as the deadline is approaching fast. Strongly, but respectfully, inform your representative that you are concerned with federal infringements on the right to bear arms. HB114 can be viewed here.
NOTE: With a vote coming as soon as the early part of the week, Calls should even be made on the weekend or in the evenings. Leave a message on their voicemail and ask to have someone return your call so that you can hear back from the legislator or their staff.
1. Contact the Chairman. Thank him for holding the hearing on this bill. Strongly, but respectfully, let him know that you believe the right to keep and bear arms shall NOT be infringed and that you expect him to vote YES on HB114.

Various local governments around the country are already passing similar resolutions and ordinances. Local legislative action is a great way to strengthen a statewide campaign against 2nd Amendment violations
