Idaho Works to Beef Up Concealed Weapons Permit, Utah Wants to Get Rid of It

SALT LAKE CITY (AP) —  As Idaho Lawmakers discuss an enhanced concealed weapons permit, Utah lawmakers are trying to get rid of theirs. Utah lawmakers debated a bill that gets rid of Utah’s concealed carry permit and declare that Utah alone is able to regulate firearms in the state.

Legislative leaders have held off debating firearm-related legislation until they were able to hear all of the proposals on the same day. One of the most controversial proposals in the Legislature this year says the regulation of guns is reserved to the state. The bill from Pleasant Grove Republican Rep. Brian Greene says any federal officer attempting to take guns from Utah residents can be arrested by local law enforcement.

Lawmakers in at least 16 other states have introduced similar legislation in response to President Barack Obama’s call for increased gun control after recent mass shootings.
