Utah: Permitless Carry Legislation Headed to the Governor!

Today, February 8th, the Utah House concurred on the Senate amendments for House Bill 60, clearing the final hurdle prior to enrollment and presentation to Governor Cox for his consideration. The NRA applauds both the Utah House and Senate for passing this important legislation. HB 60 had more than three dozen sponsors and co-sponsors, passing both chambers with overwhelming support. 

To show your support of HB 60, click here to contact Governor Cox.

House Bill 60, sponsored by Representative Walt Brooks (R-75), allows a law-abiding adult to carry a concealed firearm in the State of Utah, without first needing to obtain government permission. This ensures that citizens have their right to self-defense without government red tape or delays. Additionally, this legislation maintains the existing Concealed Firearm Permit (CFP) system, so citizens who still wish to obtain a permit may do so. 

Chief Sponsor: Rep. Walt Brooks

Senate Sponsor: Sen. David P. Hinkins

Cosponsors:
Rep. Nelson T. Abbott
Rep. Cheryl K. Acton
Rep. Carl R. Albrecht
Rep. Kera Birkeland
Rep. Jefferson S. Burton
Rep. Steve R. Christiansen
Rep. Kay J. Christofferson
