Outdoors Insider, with Dale Sunderlin: Buyers beware — to Utah or not to Utah?

Over the last week, I’ve received several emails and just as many telephone inquiries about some Utah Conceal Handgun Courses that are being held in and around the area.

People are wanting to know if they are legitimate and will they produce the reciprocity that they boast.

All I can say is buyers beware!

Here are the facts... you be the judge.

Prelude  

First, Conceal Handgun Permits in the State of Utah are regulated by the Bureau of Criminal Identification not the Attorney General as in the state of Ohio. If you have any questions or concerns about what you read hear please feel free to call them at (801) 965-4445, go on their web site www.utah.gov or email them with your questions at DPSFIREARMS@utah.gov.

Fact I: The Law

You must have a current CHL (Conceal Handgun License) from the state you reside in order to apply for and attain a non-resident Utah CHL. In other words if you do not have a current and valid Ohio CHL you cannot get a Utah non-resident permit. I pulled this directly from the Utah State Legislative Law Library:

On May 11, 2011 Utah State Bill 36 amended 53-5-704 Concealed Firearm Act Subsection (4) to read:

n (4) (a) In addition to meeting the other qualifications for the issuance of a concealed firearm permit under this section, a nonresident applicant who resides in a state that recognizes the validity of the Utah permit or has reciprocity with Utah’s concealed firearm permit law shall:

n (i) hold a current concealed firearm or concealed weapon permit issued by the appropriate permitting authority of the nonresident applicant’s state of residency; and

n (ii) Submit a photocopy or electronic copy of the nonresident applicant’s current concealed firearm or concealed weapon permit referred to in Subsection (4)(a)(i).

n (b) A nonresident applicant who knowingly and willfully provides false information to the bureau under Subsection (4)(a) is prohibited from holding a Utah concealed firearm permit for a period of 10 years.

n (c) Subsection (4)(a) applies to all applications for the issuance of a concealed firearm permit that are received by the bureau after May 10, 2011.

n (d) Beginning January 1, 2012, Subsection (4)(a) also applies to an application for renewal of a concealed firearm permit by a nonresident.
