It's time to pass permitless carry
Guns & Ammo ranked the best states for gun owners in 2017. In the rankings, Utah was in a six-way tie for the best (Washington DC was dead last). The only item preventing Utah from being a clear #1 was its lack of permitless carry. It is past time to pass permitless carry in Utah. I'm developing a bill I hope to present to the Legislature allowing permitless carry for lawful gun owners during a Governor-declared state of emergency or evacuation - only during the declared time of emergency. Florida currently has a law like this in place. Utah doesn't deal with an annual hurricane season, but the possibility exists for earthquakes, extreme winter storms, flooding and other natural disasters warranting a state of emergency. This bill would allow lawful gun owners to protect them and their families during times of extreme emergency. The bill isn't a full permitless carry option but could get us closer to that goal.
Today I found out my campaign has been endorsed by the National Rifle Association. I couldn't be more honored. You can see the endorsement here: https://www.nrapvf.org/grades/utah/
I am proud to be a member of the NRA. If you love the Constitution, become a member. As watchdog of the Second Amendment, the NRA is the largest protector of the U.S. Constitution. I found out recently there are only about 350 NRA members in Lehi. Surprising! Ponder. Join. Love and protect the Second Amendment and the Constitution of the United States.
