Utah Carry Legislation Heads To House Floor

posted on February 20, 2017

A measure under consideration in the Utah House of Representatives, which would create a provisional carry license for law-abiding individuals 18 to 20 years old, will be considered soon on the House floor.

According to NRA-ILA, individuals 18 years of age or older are already legally allowed to openly carry an unloaded firearm for self-defense in Utah, and House Bill 198 would provide them the ability to conceal and carry a loaded firearm without breaking the law.
