Tomorrow, the Utah Senate Judiciary, Law Enforcement, and Criminal Justice Committee is scheduled to hear House Bill 198. Sponsored by state Representative Karianne Lisonbee, HB 198 would create a provisional concealed carry license for law-abiding individuals 18 to 20 years old. House Bill 198 was passed by the Utah House of Representatives last week by a 63 to 12 vote.
This provisional license would allow those individuals to lawfully carry a firearm for self-defense. Currently, individuals eighteen years of age or older are legally allowed to openly carry an unloaded firearm for self-defense in Utah, and House Bill 198 would provide them the ability to conceal and carry a loaded firearm without being in jeopardy of breaking the law.
