Charged With Domestic Violence, Utah Gun Advocates Loses Arsenal

Print More

Utah’s leading gun lobbyist will be without his arsenal for at least a few more weeks after a continuance of his hearing Tuesday on a protective order filed by his ex-wife, reports the Salt Lake Tribune. Clark Aposhian, a widely known firearms instructor who helps draft gun policy for Utah, was charged with domestic violence on Memorial Day after he drove a two-ton army surplus truck onto his ex-wife's property and told her husband he would “bury” him.

Under federal law, he is banned from accessing his weapons while the court action is pending. His collection of 300 guns was moved into private storage. His attorney said he plans to fight the federal law as overreach.
