Utah It’s now legal to get a concealed weapons permit in Utah at age 18

SALT LAKE CITY — It’s now legal for someone as young as 18 to obtain a concealed weapons permit.

Governor Gary Herbert signed House Bill 198, sponsored by Rep. Karianne Lisonbee, R-Clearfield, which lowers the age for someone to conceal carry a firearm from 21 to 18. Under the law, they are allowed to seek a provisional permit.

Supporters argued the bill would help protect college students from sexual assault on campus. Opponents said it put guns in the hands of people still too young to make responsible decisions.

The bill does still prohibit concealed weapons permit holders from carrying on elementary or secondary school properties.

thats awesome, nobody should be denied means for self defense and the right to keep and bear arms by legislation. if an 18 year old kid is old enough to make the decision to vote and join the military to fight and possibly die for their country then,IMO they are old enough to make a responsible decision... maybe if those "opponents of the bill" wont stand behind someone old enough to make the decision to fight for our country, they should stand in front of them when they're getting shot at instead... people who let emotion instead of fact get the best of them are why we have stupid gun laws/stupid laws in general.​
