Over the past two years, devastating events have caused the issue of gun availability, and gun accessibility, to escalate into some often uncouth displays of arguments in the political realm. The arguments most often stem from a legal and constitutional right issue, which many Utah Lawyers are familiar with. This has brought attention to multiple groups in the U.S. that advocate for gun safety and gun rights from both ends of the opinion spectrum. Multiple officials and political activists have found themselves in some intense discussions regarding this issue and therefore relying on an attorney Utah residents can be confident in and who is aware of the current issues. According to many law firms in Salt Lake City there seem to be no signs on the horizon that the disagreements between opposing opinions will settle. However, the second Amendment in the constitution is under a different type of scrutiny presently in the Utah area.
Recently, residents of the Cottonwood Heights community, law firms in Salt Lake City and Utah residents in general have been flabbergasted by the recent report regarding Clark Aposhian, a major figure in the political scene in Utah. Near the beginning of June 2013 it was reported that Mr. Aposhian was taken into custody after he proceeded to threaten his ex-wife and her current husband during a Memorial Day altercation. This act has since resulted in Aposhian being accused of a domestic violence charge and ordered to turn in and have every weapon in his possession accounted for and, taken promptly, out of his possession. This is a judicial move that Utah lawyers aren’t surprise by. Divorce attorneys in Salt Lake City are highly aware of the odd and intense judicial rulings that can accompany a divorce case; however the specific timing of this ruling is causing further speculation. What makes this so intriguing or depressing, depending on what side of the argument you reside, is that Aposhian has become an overarching figure in Utah’s own Gun debate in the last few years.
Mr. Aposhian’s lawyer has since declared that the judge’s rule is, in essence, unconstitutional on the grounds that he has not yet been formally found guilty of the charges against him. As of now, the case remains in the preliminary stages and Mr. Aposhian awaits a pre-trial meeting for the domestic violence charge as well as additional charges for which he has been accused. According to divorce attorneys in Salt Lake City, protective orders and other judicial issued orders are very common in domestic violence issues. The gun laws in the U.S. will no doubt continue to shift and change over the next few years, say many Utah lawyers, at least until Americans settle into a relatively calm agreement, which according to history, rarely happens. However, divorce has become a commonality in the U.S. What is important in regards to both of these issues, is retaining adequate counsel from an able attorney Utah provides. Clay Alger represents an attorney Utah can rely on for swift and thorough legal guidance, and are both well-versed in family law and criminal issues.
