HOLLADAY -- A judge has ordered Utah's top gun lobbyist to surrender all of his guns within the next 24 hours because of the domestic violence charges he's facing.

The Salt Lake Tribune reports the judge's order came down during a hearing in Holladay on Tuesday after Clark Aposhian pleaded not guilty to domestic violence in front of a child, trespassing, criminal mischief and making a threat.

The charges stem from an incident at Aposhian's ex-wife's house on Memorial Day when Aposhian showed up in a 2.5 ton Army surplus truck.

Police say Aposhian was in a custody dispute and tried to force a custody exchange, and that his daughter was frightened by his arrival in the troop carrier.

Aposhian denies saying "I'll bury you" in response to a call from his ex-wife's husband.
