Utah House OKs permit-free carrying of concealed weapons in Utah

A bill that was once supposedly dead swaggered out of the House late Tuesday toward allowing carrying concealed weapons in Utah without a permit. It also contains proposed greater protections for victims of domestic violence.

The House approved HB237 on a 55-20 vote and sent it to the Senate.

Last month, it appeared to die on a tie 5-5 vote in committee. But a couple of members who supported the bill were absent that day and helped resurrect it later.

The bill by Rep. Lee Perry, R-Perry, seeks to overcome objections that Gov. Gary Herbert voiced when he vetoed legislation in 2013 that would have allowed carrying concealed guns without a permit.
