Utah Constitutional Right To Carry

A Utah lawmaker wants to allow all state residents who can legally have a gun carry and conceal it without a permit.

Rep. Carl Wimmer, R-Herriman, said he plans to introduce a bill to eliminate the requirement for a state concealed weapon permit to carry a loaded gun.

People who do not live in Utah would still need a permit issued by Utah or another state.

The measure is being drafted for the legislative session that begins Jan. 24.

Wimmer said it wouldn’t change laws about who can legally have a gun. Felons, people who have committed a violent crime and illegal residents are now prohibited from carrying a gun.

“If you’re a law-abiding, upstanding citizen, you can protect yourself by carrying a gun without a permit,” Wimmer said.

Alaska, Arizona and Vermont already have similar laws, he said.

The proposal would not eliminate concealed weapon permits because people would still need them to carry a concealed gun in other states.

Also, Utah allows residents of other states to apply for the state’s concealed weapon permit.-[source]
