Utah moves to legalize concealed guns without permit
Utah House » Lawmakers advance bill to get rid of concealed-carry permits.

< Previous Page

There have been several instances recently where people have taken assault rifles or other weapons to malls or public places, creating a disturbance.

"What we are trying to do is prevent the person who is legally and lawfully carrying a gun from getting cited for disorderly conduct," Ray said. Those who take an assault rifle to the mall deserve to be ticketed, Ray said.

"I 100 percent support the Second Amendment, but I don’t support someone who doesn’t do it responsibly," Ray said.

The committee passed two other gun-related bills. One, HB211, would exempt service members stationed in Utah and their spouses from a requirement that they get a concealed weapons permit in his or her home state before getting one in Utah. The other, HB121, would let gun owners or their cohabitant family members turn their firearms over to police for up to 60 days if they feel they could harm themselves or others.
