Statement on Firearms and Hunting Section
Like everyone else in the country, the management of KSL is profoundly saddened by the tragedy in Connecticut. In the wake of this and other similar incidents, important questions have been raised about the ease of access to guns. These questions deserve time for careful consideration and we are confident that an appropriate resolution will be found. Accordingly, KSL has temporarily suspended firearms listings on KSL.com classifieds. We recognize that this may inconvenience responsible citizens who have used this service, but we feel this is an important step while these broader societal issues are examined.

From Utah Gun Exchange: Link Removed

Within hours of KSL’s announcement, founders launched the leading alternative

(Salt Lake City, UT—December 19, 2012) Within hours of the announcement that KSL suspended private firearms sales through its classifieds service a new website was launched offering Utah citizens a place to buy and sell guns.

UtahGunExchange.com was launched to provide a cooperative marketplace for Utah residents to offer and find firearms for sale. Utah Gun Exchange will fill the void left by KSL’s decision to depart from Utah’s private firearms market Tuesday, said Exchange co-founder Nick Moyes.

“Our site’s launch gives KSL an easy out,” said Moyes. “We appreciate what they’ve done thus far and understand that offering Utahns the ability to buy and sell firearms may not be a stance they wish to champion anymore.”

Those wishing to use the website may list their firearms at no charge. Utah law allows for the private purchase of firearms between adults in Utah with no registration.

“We applaud Utah legislators for protecting the free market for this fundamental tool of self defense,” said Moyes. “We want to enable Utahns to take advantage of that market to better be able to deter any life-endangering threats they might face.”
