READ BELOW FOR THE TRUTH ABOUT THE NEW BILL.

There is a lot of misinformation out there concerning the Utah CCW bill S.B. 36 sub. I want to clear some of the misinformation up. Let me start with the short answer.

Residents of states who DO NOT have formal or informal reciprocity agreements with Utah WILL NOT be adversely affected by this legislation.

The requirement to obtain the home state license prior to applying for the Utah permit will not apply to us Since New York is one of the states that does not have reciprocity with Utah.

The above statements are from two sources. The first is my reading and interpretation of the bill and the second is from a detailed conversation I had with the Utah Bureau of Criminal Investigation (BCI) confirming my interpretation of the bill. BCI are actually the folks that administer the Utah permit.

In my discussions with them, and I will not name the individual here on the internet, I asked if they were going to issue a statement summarizing this new legislation. My primary concern was the amount of misinformation that an internet search will yield. BCI can not officially opine just yet. While their lawyers have read the bill, they are unable to issue any formalities on it until the Governor signs it into law. They expect his signature at the end of March.

The unofficial response to me was to please get out there and quash the rumors. Thus, this post.

For those that wish to read the legislation, here is a direct link the cleanest copy of the bill I could currently find:

http://le.utah.gov/~2011/bills/sbillamd/sb0036s01.pdf

For those that do read the bill, DO NOT stop reading at the first page. The section that allows us in nonreciprocal states to continue to apply for the license is Section 4 beginning on line 74.
