Feds Warn Of Gadsden Flag And Other “Extremist” Symbols

From Reason.com:

The report includes several “visual indicators” to help police determine whether they’re dealing with “extremist and disaffected individuals.” These range from images associated with specific political groups, such as the Oath Keepers and Three Percenters, to a more generic patriotic symbol, the Gadsden flag—a famous Revolutionary War banner featuring a coiled rattlesnake and the slogan “Don’t Tread on Me.” One of the “indicators” is a slightly altered version of apicture popular with fans of the Grateful Dead; the guide does not note this potential source of confusion, describing it only as “common sovereign citizen imagery.”

According to this bulletin a gathering of U.S. Soccer fans could be construed as an extremist rally.

Utah Sheriffs Won’t Enforce Unconstitutional Gun Laws

From CNS News:

The letter to the President states (emphasis added): “We, like you swore a solemn oath to protect and defend the Constitution of the United States and we are prepared to trade our lives for the preservation of its traditional interpretation.”

“[P]lease remember the Founders of this great nation created the Constitution, and its accompanying Bill of Rights, in an effort to protect citizens from all forms of tyrannical subjugation.”

Illinois College Holding Utah Concealed Carry Classes

From Guns.com:

That might sound odd, but it actually makes quite a bit of sense. Utah concealed carry permits are recognized in 31 states, so a permit carrier can cross most state lines without too much concern for variable state gun laws. It’s a bit ironic considering that Illinois is the only state that doesn’t permit concealed carry, but where there’s a will there’s a way. Illinois citizens can still prepare for trips abroad into concealed carry-friendly states.

Open Carry in Utah

From Guns.com:

The bill is entitled H.B. 49, “Firearms Revisions,” and states “… in the absence of additional threatening behavior, the otherwise lawful possession of a firearm visible or concealed” would not constitute a violation of Utah’s various criminal provisions and statutes.

In short, if the bill is passed law enforcement can’t arbitrarily charge one with a crime for lawfully carrying a firearm – as in the case with Taylor.

The 1911 Might Be Utah’s State Gun

From TheBlaze.com:

The bill to make the Browning M1911 the official gun breezed through a committee hearing this week and is scheduled to be debated by the full House as early as Wednesday.

Republican Rep. Carl Wimmer said the state should have the gun as one of its state symbols to honor John Browning, a Utah native who invented it in 1911.

Utah: List Of Accused Illegal Aliens mailed to Utah media, law enforcement, and the state House and Senate

“An anonymously created list of 1300 people accused of being illegal aliens arrived by U.S. mail Monday at Utah media outlets, law enforcement agencies, and the state House and Senate.

The list, comprised almost solely of Hispanic names, contained Social Security numbers, birth dates and contact information for each person along with their workplaces, their children’s names and even the due dates of pregnant women.

State Representative Steven Sandstrom, R-Orem, who is writing Utah’s own version of Arizona SB 1070, says the approach is misguided and unlawful .”I think it’s a wrong approach,” Sandstrom told the Salt Lake Tribune. “It sends the wrong message, and it doesn’t follow the rule of law with the bill that I’m writing.”

Ron Mortensen, of the Utah Coalition On Illegal Immigration, a group that has historically been very vocal against illegal immigrants, also denied any involvement in creating the list, calling it, “an inappropriate action. It’s never right to release government documents, if that’s what this is.”
