The Utah State Motto must be "stupid is as stupid does."
There's still hope in America,
Common sense prevailed over hoplophobic hysteria.Well done, Council
members!Remember, every time anyone proposes any sort of loosening
of gun laws, or relaxing requirements, the anti-gun crowd shows up, predicting
mayhem, blood in the streets, "shootouts at the OK Corral," and the
like. And then after many years experience where the dire predictions fail to
materialize, they never admit that they were wrong, and that their fears were
unjustified.Criminals will still get guns illegally, just like they
get illegal drugs, steal cars and commit other crimes. Law abiding gun owners,
and dealers, are not the problem, it's the criminals who are the problem.
The neighbor wants the permit denied because someone might use false ID to buy a
gun and presumably using this false ID they couldn't buy it anywhere else?
Certainly that is a possibility. The extra gravity caused by the mass of the
guns might draw an asteroid into the neighborhood too. I guess anything is a
Way to go Woods Cross. Paranoia of the anti gunners did not prevail. Freedom

Well done WX council for not cowing to political correctness and hysteria.
Deseret News, please schedule a follow up article to this in six months, a

were wrong about the mayhem they are sure is about to ensue because of the
imminent gun proliferation in that zip code. On 2nd thought, never mind -
they'll never admit to that.
Background checks for legal gun purchases will keep the guns out of the hands of
those trying to use a phony ID.
Doesn't seem like a good way to turn neighbors into friends.
I applaud WX's decision to grant the license. I do not worry about this
kind of business as the traffic should be minimal and the inventory safely
stored.There might be a market for a home inspection service for the
anti-firearm folks to check under their beds to be sure there are no boggey men
and other scarey creatures. They seen so concerned with the "what ifs"
that periodic inspection against the unknown may have a calming effect. Just a
DN Subscriber: Hmmmmm. I envision a whole new set of labels which may well be
wielded in the continuing debate over gun rights. "Hoplophobe" or
"Hoplophobic bigot" Since we obviously all stand by the
"Stupid" motto: Let the rock throwing continue!
The more weapons everyone has, the safer we will all be.I saw it on
