Gun lobbyist Aposhian ordered to give up firearms

Domestic-violence charge, protective order spur order for top Utah lobbyist to turn in his guns.

A good man » "Mr. Aposhian is not God," said Sen. Allen Christensen, R-North Ogden, a Senate sponsor of a 2013 constitutional carry bill vetoed by Gov. Gary Herbert. "The fact that he supposedly slipped up here and was human ... that shouldn’t have any great effect on the basic situation about our Second Amendment rights. Clark is a good man. It doesn’t take away his knowledge because he supposedly did something wrong here."

The Utah Shooting Sports Council, which Aposhian chairs, will convene a closed board meeting Thursday or Friday to question its leader and discuss his future role.

"I don’t think it’s going to be influential at all," Council President Bill Pedersen said about Tuesday’s court ruling. "Some of the things kind of surprised us, but overall we kind of figured there would be some kind of protective order she would throw at him."

Meyer, the ex-wife’s husband, has also filed a civil stalking injunction against Aposhian, which will be heard June 18 in 3rd District Court.

In addition to suspending Aposhian’s gun rights, the protective order prohibits him from calling, emailing or visiting his ex-wife at her home or workplace, bars him from committing any act of domestic violence or harassment and forbids him from using drugs or alcohol before visiting his child. Violation of any provision could subject him to new charges, ranging up to a third-degree felony.
