Utah Gun Lobbyist Aposhian Ordered to Give Up firearms
(Al Hartmann | The Salt Lake Tribune) Clark Aposhian, Utah's chief gun rights activist and chairman of the Utah Shooting Sports Council, appears in Holladay Justice Court on four charges, including domestic violence, for a Memorial Day incident at his ex-wife's house. Judge Augustus Chin ordered him to secure his weapons away from his home, car and person.

Clark Aposhian — a political force who helps guide gun policy on Utah’s Capitol Hill — was ordered by a justice court judge Tuesday to surrender all firearms in his home, office and on his person based on pending domestic violence charges and a protective order filed by his ex-wife.
"I’m going to prohibit you at this point as part of the protective order from having any firearms," Judge Augustus Chin said in a brief arraignment and hearing. "If there are any weapons in your home, I’m giving you 24 hours to remove them. That’s in effect immediately."
Aposhian, the state’s foremost gun lobbyist and an outspoken concealed weapons permit instructor, pleaded not guilty to domestic violence in the presence of a child and three other class B misdemeanors: trespass, criminal mischief and threat of violence.
The charges all stem from a Memorial Day incident in which Aposhian drove his 10-wheel, 2-ton army truck into his ex-wife’s Cottonwood Heights neighborhood, allegedly honked an air horn and then backed into the ex-wife’s driveway, nearly hitting a parked vehicle.

Usually concealed carry maniacs get away with the crap they pull - not this time.
