- HB198: Concealed Carry Amendments (2017)
Prior to this bill, Utah law allowed adults age 21 and over to obtain a concealed carry permit. This bill created a provisional permit accessible to adults age 18 to 21 to conceal carry a firearm.
This bill passed the House 63-12 and passed the Senate 23-6. Libertas supports a "yea" vote because the right to keep and bear arms is fundamental and should be available to all adults; this bill is a path in the right direction.
