Life Has Just Become Safer in Utah

Utah Gov. Spencer Cox has signed a bill into law allowing residents to carry a concealed firearm without a permit.

The law, signed by Cox on Friday, goes into effect in May and allows anyone age 21 and older to carry a concealed weapon without a background check by the FBI or a training course, according to Fox 13 Salt Lake City.

"With the passage of this bill, Utah joins 17 other states with some form of permitless concealed carry," Cox said. "This bill protects Second Amendment rights, reduces permitless open carry and includes significant funding for suicide prevention.”



  1. It seems almost a moot point since ammunition is virtually nonexistent. If you can find it, .22LR is going for seventy cents per round. Those are Gamestop prices.

  2. I knew there was a reason I moved here....

  3. This bill should have been signed eight years ago when it was passed in 2013. However, the then sitting governor, Gary Herbert, though that the permit system in place since 1995 was "fine" and didn't need to be tinkered with.

    I'm glad that Utah has now joined the number of other states who allow for permit-less carry.
