Well it has been over a year now since our state Supreme Court said they would look at the issue involving the U of U and the right to carry on campus.
They originally stated they would make a decision in a couple of months. I find this outrageous! I work at the U of U & know that there is no secre place on, or off campus within the U of U system. This being said, the Utah Legislature has the right to make laws. Therefore the law as written by the Legislature says it is legal to carry on campus--there is absolutely no reason for the Utah Supreme Court to drag their collective feet on what should obvoiusly be a simple decision in support of our laws as written!
I called the AG's office the other day to find out what is going on, however the person I needed to speak to was not in. If anyone is able to find anything out concerning this important decision please post it! If I find out more this next week, I too will post that.

Stay safe, Carry often & God Bless!

Well, as I said, I would get an update for you on the status of our State Supreme Court and their LONGGGG awaited, and verrry overdue decision on guns on the U of U campus and the Legislatures ability to create law.
Well, I just got off of the phone with the AG's office today (o.k.-Friday, since this is early AM) where I was told that as far as they know the court has pushed it to the back burner, as if it were a very "unimportant issue." The gentleman with whom I spoke was unable to give me any actual info, as they have not heard from the court at all concerning this issue. He was hard pressed to keep quite concerning his own feelings of spite concerning the high courts negligence to act, and tried to be tight lipped, however, his thoughts were easy to readd concerning this important issue.
Unfortunatley we are not able to lobby the court to try to force them to make a decision as they are different from our elected officials on the hill.
It is certainly nice to know that our safety is such a high priority on their collectively naive and possible deeply set bias towards guns, gun rights, 2nd ammendment issues and disrespect for the law. Maybe they might wake up some day. O.K. maybe this portion was a bit sarcastic, but I know that somebody besides me is out there who gives a darn! Is there no one who even wants to comment here. It has been over a week & 27 people have reviewed my first note, so either everyone must agree with me, or no one else feels like writing a response.
Our court system is a mess, it would be nice if we could do something about from the top down so that these aggregious misrepresentations, and illicit behaviors can disappear. Maybe then governmemnt might get a bit more honest and effectual.

I find the lack of progress to be disappointing. But not surprising. A "more honest and effectual" government would entail the reversal of a longterm trend. The attempt to water down GRAMA is an indication that the trend is continuing.
