Utah - -( Paul Ray Introduces Disorderly Conduct Amendments Bill

Rep. Paul Ray has introduced H.B. 276 — Disorderly Conduct Amendments. This bill has been thoroughly vetted in prior legislative sessions. This is a well-reasoned bill which will take pressure off of both law-enforcement and the courts. It supplies law enforcement with more precise guidance on what constitutes disorderly conduct so as to not punish innocent activities.

This issue came to a head when two individuals were publicly transferring a firearm from one vehicle to another in order to go target shooting. A non-shooter observed the transfer, panicked, and called the police. The police responded and had no choice but to apply disorderly conduct to the activity. This wasted law enforcement and court time and cost the individuals both their shooting time and expense.

The Utah Shooting Sports Council fully supports this bill in its current form.

Additionally, the USSC will oppose any competing bills on this subject, particularly any that would seek to expand the activities characterized as disorderly conduct. Such bills would violate the intent of legislation on this topic.

  • One User comment to “Utah Itroduces Improved Disorderly Conduct Amendments Bill”

    1. Amazing but not surprising it takes until 2014 to construct a law that actually abides by the law of common sense. The praetorians “had no choice” to use restraint, common sense, and apply the law by its rational intent. So good men have to contend with gunpoint-enforcer idiocy? Makes for some convenient ticket-quota filling. Disorderly conduct because some liberal, anti-gun ninnie gets all neurotic at the sight of certain tools? Pathetic! I remember the same gunpoint-enforcer nonsense a year or two ago when a LAWFUL open-carrier in UT was tattled on by some left-wing ninnie, and the open-carrier finds himself accosted by a thugswarm of uniformed “protectors”, with guns pulled and aiming at our lawful neighbor, in the name of “disorderly conduct”, and the all-important “officer safety” uber alles conundrum, all at the expense of the citizen’s safety, which our “protectors & servers” trample. Who protects us from our “protectors” when the citizen has been effectively banned from defending himself from over-empowered government hoodlums? “Qui custodiet ipsos custodes?”
