From the NRA:

Utah, Your Right to Self-Defense Needs Your Help!

Please contact members of the State Senate Judiciary Committee immediately!

Senate Bill 24, sponsored by State Senator Mark Madsen (R-13), will allow law abiding citizens to have a loaded and/or concealed self-defense firearm in their car without the need to obtain a concealed weapon permit. Additionally, under current law it is technically illegal for you to carry a concealed firearm in your home or on your property. SB 24 would clear up this unintended technicality.

When first heard on Wednesday, this bill was met with negative comments from five of the committee members. They voted to give it further consideration in the Senate Judiciary Committee this Friday, February 17 at 4:00 p.m. in RM W130.

Time is of the essence and four of these five committee members, who are undecided, need to hear from gun-owners in the state of Utah!

Please contact the following members of the Senate Judiciary Committee and ask them to vote 'Yes' on SB 24 and send it to the Senate Floor.

Senator Al Mansell (R-9)

E-mail: amansell@utahsenate.org



Senator Lyle Hillyard (R-25)

E-mail: lhillyard@utahsenate.org



Senator Mike Dmitrich (D-27)

E-mail: mdmitrich@utahsenate.org



Senator Gregory Bell, Vice Chairman (R-22)

E-mail: gbell@utahsenate.org



All members of the Senate can be reached by calling Capitol switchboard at (801) 538-1035. The fax number for all Senators at the Capitol is (801) 326-1475


This is a great bill. E-mail or call the senators ASAP.

I am writing to ask you for your support for SB24.

Senate Bill 24, sponsored by State Senator Mark Madsen (R-13), will allow law abiding citizens to have a loaded and/or concealed self-defense firearm in their car without the need to obtain a concealed weapon permit. This will deter car-jackings and other crimes, both at home and while traveling, and show your support for our Second Amendment rights. Additionally, under current law it is technically illegal for you to carry a concealed firearm in your home or on your property. SB 24 would clear up this unintended technicality.
Please support SB24 by voting "Yes" and send it to the Senate floor.

Thank you for your support,

Supposedly, something like this is in the works for Idaho, as well. I heard about it on the radio yesterday, but couldn't find any real information out, about it. The cops, of course, were out against it. Saying it makes their jobs more dangerous. How, allowing a gun in a law abiding citizen's car, can make their job more dangerous, is beyond me. Those asses that would shoot them, to begin with, probably don't concern themselves much, with the current laws.

THANKS!

I take that as a good thing...

So, when will a vote commence on this in the senate and when do we need to write Senators?

I will most likely soon be a resident of Utah, and although I have a UT CCW, I'd like to see the law changed for the better. Also, I would like to alert friends of mine in Utah to write their senators as well.

Please let us know if any of you have updated inofrmation!!

It passed the Senate on Friday, without a single dissenting vote (gotta love Utah gun politics), and has now been sent to the house.

Crap, it died in the house.

I don't think there was ever a vote in the house. They may have just ran out of time. Hopefully next year.

They did manage to remove the age limit on hunting small game. Guess I need to run out and buy three 20 gauges!

Seriously? That sucks.

So, what happens now? Is the bill essentially gone forever, or does the House vote on it next time they are in session??
