Yesterday, the Utah Legislature adjourned sine die from its 2021 session after passing two more self-defense bills. They are currently in the enrolling process to be sent to Governor Spencer Cox’s desk.
House Bill 227, sponsored by Representative Karianne Lisonbee (R-14), improves Utah's self-defense laws by defining justifiable use of force, and establishing procedures for the applicability of the defense. Citizens who suffer the misfortune of having to use force to defend themselves and others should not be victimized a second time by the judicial system.
House Bill 216, sponsored by Representative Karianne Lisonbee (R-14), makes technical and clarifying changes to improve Utah's provisional concealed firearms permits.
NRA would like to thank Gov. Cox, Rep. Brooks, Rep. Lisonbee, and all the other lawmakers who made these successes possible, and made 2021 a productive session for self-defense rights. Please stay tuned to www.nraila.org and your email inbox for further updates.
