On January 22nd, the Utah House Judiciary Committee passed House Bill 60 on an 8 – 3 vote.
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.
HB 60 will next go to the House floor for a vote. At this time, a vote has not been scheduled; however, it’s important that you contact your representative and encourage their support of this important legislation!
