Utah: Governor Signs Self-Defense Legislation into Law

Yesterday, Governor Gary Herbert signed pro-gun legislation, House Bill 114 into law.  This important self-defense legislation clarifies existing Utah law that there is no duty to retreat when an individual is justified in responding to an aggressor with force and ensures that crime victims will not be victimized a second time by the criminal justice system. 

Thank you to those who contacted their lawmakers in support of House Bill 114, as well as the legislators who voted in favor of its passage.  Also, thank you to Governor Herbert for signing this legislation into law.  Stay-tuned to NRA-ILA Alerts for more information and updates on your Second Amendment rights in Utah.
