Utah: Legislature Adjourns its 2016 Legislative Session

Last week, Utah’s 2016 legislative session came to a close with unfortunate news regarding permitless carry legislation.

Senate Bill 97, sponsored by state Senator David Hinkins (R-27), sought to allow individuals to carry a concealed firearm without a concealed firearm permit as long as they were at least 21 years of age and could lawfully possess a firearm.  Unfortunately, SB 97 died in the Senate this legislative session, but your NRA-ILA will continue to strongly advocate for this self-defense bill’s passage.

Thankfully, two other NRA-backed bills passed through the Utah Legislature and were sent to the Governor’s desk for final consideration:

House Bill 67, sponsored by state Representative Norman K. Thurston (R-64), would eliminate the prohibition on carrying a firearm on a bus, allowing those who use public transportation to carry a firearm for self-defense.

House Bill 298, sponsored by state Representative Justin L. Fawson (R-7), would enact the Lawful Commerce in Arms Act, limiting the liability of manufacturers and sellers of firearms and ammunition.  This legislation helps protect manufacturers and sellers of firearms and ammunition from baseless lawsuits where a third party used their product unlawfully.

Your NRA-ILA will continue to work hard to fight for your Second Amendment Rights in the state of Utah in 2017!
