U.S.A. -(AmmoLand.com)- Today, the Utah Senate passed HB 60, clearing the last major hurdle. The bill will now be transmitted back to the House for a concurrence vote before heading to Governor Cox’s desk.

House Bill 60, sponsored by Representative Walt Brooks (R-75), allows a law-abiding adult to carry a concealed firearm in the State of Utah, without first needing to obtain government permission. This ensures that citizens have their right to self-defense without government red tape or delays. Additionally, this legislation maintains the existing Concealed Firearm Permit (CFP) system, so citizens who still wish to obtain a permit may do so.

Maybe I’m reading HB0060 Sub 3 incorrectly, but I don’t see anywhere in the legislation that actually codifies “constitutional carry” or permit-less carry. I see reference in the “highlighted provisions” saying it does that in lines 25-26 but I don’t see where it actually does it in the modifications or enactments. I see where fees for permit are spelled out (in a supposed permit-less carry bill), where any excess funding from those fees has to go to suicide education and prevention, penalties for carrying a weapon, and that any type of LEO (you know, not the regular third class rest… Read more »
