On Thursday, the House voted 58-16 to pass Senate Bill 115, to enhance Utah’s firearm preemption law. SB 115 has now been transmitted back to the Senate, where it awaits a concurrence vote.
Senate Bill 115 2nd Substitute enhances Utah’s existing firearm preemption statute by providing a mechanism to ensure compliance. Firearm preemption occupies the field of firearm laws and regulations with the state, preventing localities from enacting their own gun control, which in turn could create a confusing patchwork of regulations and ordinances. This legislation will help ensure consistency in firearm laws throughout the state of Utah.
