UofU Open Carry

Postby Utah_patriot » Tue 06 Aug 2013 1:20 pm

After years of working on Open Carry on University Campus I have a upcoming meeting with University Police Chief and legal counsel.
Mitch Vilos has agreed to represent open carry the cost is 750.00 I am actively seeking sponsors since this legal case has the potential to go to the State Supreme court.
If it does the costs could be as high as 30,000

I am seeking gun organizations to help fund this fight I am looking into raffles and other Ideas to help fund this important issue since legislators have failed.
The meeting is set for Aug 10-15th the date has not been set until I can fully fund his legal help of 750.00

Any Ideas would be helpful this is just the start of a long journey.

Thanks
Zachary

I would ask Utah Gun Exchange, maybe Nick would be willing to help out.

I just want to say thank you Zachary for all that you do :) I don't have any money but if there are other ways i can help you just let me know, and i will volunteer my time and efforts.

Are you going to OC at the meeting with the campus chief? As I stated on FB, I'm willing to help out financially or in any other way. I don't have much right now, but could spare some now and more after payday on the 15th. Let me know how you want to arrange getting the money.

Way to go Zach! I'd be happy to have Mountain West Armory donate a gun if you'd like to do a fundraiser to cover the legal fees. I'll give you a call this evening and we can work out the details.

I would suggest considering using one of the many online fund raising websites that would be used to accept donations for this cause. I would gladly donate some $$ for this very worthy cause, despite being a BYU fan.... ;-)

Consider this one.... http://www.crowdrise.com/online-fundraising

Is the $750 for representation at the meeting only, or does that go a little further?

PayPal account?

I can't do much, but small amounts add up fast.

Does Mitch have a way we can donate to a legal defense fund?

Good news Mitch Vilos has agreed to take this case to offset the legal cost he has agreed to accept donations in a trust account on my behalf.
My part of the Bill is 750.00 to further open carry on Utah campuses.

I will be meeting with University Police Chief and legal counsel to discuss their Illegal policy's.
I am doing this at the risk of my employment because I truly believe in this cause and feel state university's cannot regulate firearms on state campuses.
This unlawful activity has gone on long enough and it's time we tell State owned facilities Follow State Law.

It's expected this case could go all the way up to the Utah Supreme Court if it does the cost could flex to 30,000.
I am invested in this and will follow continue to stay on top of this.

Donations are being directly handled by Mitch Vilos
The funds will go towards legal costs

when sending funds they should be sent
(FBO) for the benefit of Zachary S Wellman

Address to send them to is
Attn Mitch Vilos
PO Box 1148
Centerville Utah 84014

Donations are not tax deductible or offer any attorney client beneft

Just out of curiosity, what does the initial $750.00 get you/us?

Does it get some amount of prep time for Mitch to prepare arguments to make to the UoU while you and he meets with them?

Or is this just for his time to show up and confer with the UoU?

Ideally of course, you and MItch would be able to convince the UoU that they have no authority under current law to ban OC and they would adopt a legal policy without having to go to court. Despite my previous posts here about how Lund might not apply at a school, I certainly think it makes some good evidence to use against the UoU (a college is not a grade school). Obviously, the original UoU v Shurtleff decision should also be carefully analyzed for anything that might affect the ability of the U to limit or ban OC.
