Tomorrow, the Utah Senate is scheduled to consider and vote on 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. This important self-defense bill will now go to the Senate floor for consideration. Please contact your state Senator and politely urge them to SUPPORT House Bill 198.
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.
Again, please contact your state Senator and politely urge them to SUPPORT House Bill 198.
