Utah top gun lobbyist arrested for threatening ex-wife with a 2.5 Ton Army Surplus vehicle

One of Utah’s top gun lobbyists was arrested this week after he reportedly threatened the lives of his ex-wife’s family with a 2.5-ton Army surplus vehicle. According to Aposhian’s jail booking statement, he allegedly told the victim that he will go wherever he wants and he would run over the victim’s cars and bury the victim, but his lawyer claims he was simply “having fun in his big boy toy.”










Sgt. Askerlund said, [Aposhian] honked the air horn, pulled into the residence, running over the lawn and almost striking her vehicle.”

Utah Shooting Sports Council Chairman Clark Aposhian indicated to the officers that he was carrying a weapon. The officers took his weapon away. He was charged with a crime and the weapon was booked into evidence and Aposhian was taken to jail, according to Fox 13 Now.

    What a fine representative for gun rights.

      At their core, they’re all like that.

        Yup bullies –
        if they don’t like it, they tantrum and use their guns. A lack of imagination also too…ya betcha

        And you would be a complete idiot

        As a gun owner myself, I do not even remotely resemble that statement. This is a moronic male with an ego problem and a complete lack of empathy and decency, who also just happens to have a gun. Frankly guys like this give the rest of us a really bad name. We are NOT all like this, I assure you.

    I can just hear Lardass Limbaugh now: “Awww..he was just letting off a little steam, that’s all…”

    I’ve walked in when my husband was having fun with his big boy toy, he was a little embarrassed…..now having your AR-15 stolen from your car while parked outside your home makes you irresponsible. Considering he makes his living teaching gun safety makes him an idiot. Nothing worse than a domestic abuser with an arsenal.

    He’s quite the ambassador for gun rights. What he really wants is power over other people, and he uses the 2nd Amendment blather as a shield to deflect attention from his power-mongering.

    We will see this man again in the news and it won’t be pretty. Clearly, based on his escalated aggression and his extraction from his normal social activities are not good traits in a domestic abuser.

    his lawyer claims he was just having fun with his big boy toy ? does that explain why his wife is now his EX-WIFE and threatening her and his EX-WIFE’S FAMILY is just having fun. Real winner there? Must be one of those Homeland Security overstock military toys the are selling to police departments across the nation. wonder how he got this toy.
