Utah House votes to allow concealed guns without a permit

The Utah House voted Tuesday to allow adults to carry concealed weapons without a permit, despite some GOP dissent.

Republican Rep. Merrill Nelson worried the idea would bring Utah one step closer to the “wild West,” the Deseret News reported. Nelson said he was a gun owner and supporter of the Second Amendment, but argued that every amendment has limitations.

“Removing this permit requirement will make our society less safe,” he said. “We have nothing to gain by passing this law. It solves no problem. But we have much to lose.”

He and one other Republican, Rep. Jim Dunnigan of Taylorsville, joined Democrats in voting against the bill. It would drop requirements for adults to take a weapons class and pass a background check before carrying a concealed gun in public.
