The NRA is pleased to report that Governor Gary Herbert has signed three pro-gun bills into law: House Bill 117, House Bill 129 and House Bill 395. All three laws went into effect immediately upon the Governor signing them.
House Bill 117, introduced by state Representative Ken Ivory (R-47), repeals the limitation on carrying a concealed firearm while hunting and will make a technical amendment to existing law by changing the term “sawed-off shotgun” to “short barrel shotgun.”
House Bill 129, introduced by state Representative Patrick Painter (R-67), clarifies and strengthens Utah’s statute which protects a property owner from civil liability if the person is justified in defending his or her home and family against criminal activity.
Lastly, 1st Substitute House Bill 395, introduced by Stephen Sandstrom (R-58), will make a number of positive changes to existing law, including the following:
