    PUBLIC INVITED TO JOHN M. BROWNING DAY CELEBRATION AT THE CAPITOL

    John M. Browning, who lived and worked in Ogden, Utah, is widely regarded as the world's greatest firearms inventor. His inventions include every type of firearm from single shot rifles and autoloading pistols to heavy machine guns. His Model 1911 pistol has been used for 100 years, and his .50 caliber machine gun since 1921. With over seven million sold, Browning's Winchester Model 1894 ".30-30 deer rifle" made from 1894 through 2006, is the best selling sporting rifle of all time.

    The State of Utah will honor John M. Browning and the 100th Anniversary of the adoption of Browning's Model 1911 pistol on Monday, January 24, 2011. A ceremony plus free exhibits will take place in the rotunda of the Utah State Capitol. This is also the first day of the 2011 session of the Utah Legislature.

    There will be an amazing exhibit in the Capitol rotunda all day, with examples of nearly every type of gun invented by Browning, ranging from rifles to machine guns. Fifty different guns in the display have been gathered from museums and private collections all over Utah. Nearly everyone will be able to spot Browning invented guns which they or a family member used for sporting purposes, or while in military service, or for personal protection.

    An interesting sidelight is that Browning interrupted his gun designing career in 1887-1889 to serve in Georgia as a missionary for the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints.

    A free video will be shown in the Capitol media room highlighting the life and contributions of John M. Browning.

    This is a great opportunity to visit our beautifully restored State Capitol, and take the family along to see where laws are made.

    The exhibit is a joint effort by the Fort Douglas Military Museum; the John M. Browning Firearms Museum (Union Station), in Ogden; Browning, Morgan, UT; the Utah Gun Collectors Association, the Utah National Guard and the Utah Shooting Sports Council.

    We're all in favor of reducing violent crime. It's just that pro-gunners have a method that is proven effective. Anti-gunners don't.
