Reacting Without All The Facts

Recent wildfires in the state of Utah are bringing together “concerned” Utahans to act against the Second Amendment. Officials say at least twenty fires this year was caused by “gun fire,” so apparently their obvious next move is to ban firearm use in areas that may cause a wildfire.


But wait…

A June wildfire in Utah that destroyed 52 homes and killed a man was caused by arcing between two high-voltage transmission lines built too closely together, a state fire investigator has concluded.

In his report, Deputy Utah Fire Marshal Troy Mills says high winds either caused crossing wires to touch or come close enough to spark, sending a surge to the ground and igniting grass. The Wood Hollow Fire burned 75 square miles, or about 47,000 acres, and destroyed more than 100 structures besides homes. It was 100% contained July 2.
