At midnight tomorrow, the Utah Legislature will adjourn from its 2018 Legislative Session. Before that happens, your Senator needs to hear from you in support of House Bill 129 and House Bill 312.
House Bill 129 seeks to clarify existing law to make it clear that an individual has no duty to retreat in a self-defense situation in Utah.
House Bill 312 would provide a technical fix to the provisional Concealed Firearm permit statute. Under existing law, a provisional CFP expires when the holder turns 21. However, the person cannot apply for a regular permit until he or she actually turns 21, and then must wait for the application to be approved and the permit to be issued. The current gap in time could potentially be up to 60 days between expiration of the provisional CFP and issuance of the regular CFP. House Bill 312 was introduced to fix that issue.
Again, please contact your state Senator and politely urge them to SUPPORT House Bill 129 and House Bill 312 when they comes up for a vote.
