Having ready access to firearms was not enough for one enthusiast.

He drove a Duce and a half to his ex's place for some "home correction". And got caught.

Clark Aposhian’s attorney says the face of Utah’s gun lobby was simply "having fun in his big boy toy."

But if convicted of domestic violence after allegedly driving a 2-ton army surplus truck onto his ex-wife’s property, threatening to "run over their cars" and "bury" her husband, Aposhian has a lot to lose. A conviction would force him to give up his arsenal of firearms, his concealed-weapons permit and concealed-carry instructor’s license and, potentially, he could be stripped of his chairmanship of the Utah Shooting Sports Council, his influence in the Utah Capitol and his decadelong seat on the state’s concealed-firearm review board.

"It would be ruinous to this man’s profession," said Aposhian’s attorney Mitch Vilos. "I would blame the Cottonwood Heights police for doing an incompetent investigation."

Now mister I have to wave it constantly or I will lose my grip on it is concerned he will no longer be able to encourage others to act out their inadequacy through firearms fondling. Apparently there is a reverse correlation between sense and income potential.

A tag is a way to search for this diary. If someone is searching for "Barack Obama," is this a diary they'd be trying to find?

Use a person's full name, without any title. Senator Obama may become President Obama, and Michelle Obama might run for office.

If your diary covers an election or elected official, use election tags, which are generally the state abbreviation followed by the office. CA-01 is the first district House seat. CA-Sen covers both senate races. NY-GOV covers the New York governor's race.

Tags do not compound: that is, "education reform" is a completely different tag from "education". A tag like "reform" alone is probably not meaningful.

Consider if one or more of these tags fits your diary: Civil Rights, Community, Congress, Culture, Economy, Education, Elections, Energy, Environment, Health Care, International, Labor, Law, Media, Meta, National Security, Science, Transportation, or White House. If your diary is specific to a state, consider adding the state (California, Texas, etc). Keep in mind, though, that there are many wonderful and important diaries that don't fit in any of these tags. Don't worry if yours doesn't.
