NAGR Celebrates Constitutional Carry Victory in Utah
Utah’s Constitutional Carry Bill, House Bill 60, signed by Governor Spencer Cox today
Salt Lake City, UT –The National Association for Gun Rights, Rep. Walt Brooks, and Sen. David Hinkins are celebrating Governor Spencer Cox’s signing Constitutional Carry into law in Utah.
Utah is the 17th state to pass Constitutional Carry into law, thereby upholding a standard set forth by the Second Amendment to the United States Constitution.
“Passing Constitutional Carry has been a priority for the National Association for Gun rights for a long time. NAGR is grateful to Representative Brooks and Senator Hinkins for this legislation and we want to thank our field staff for their hard work in making it happen,” said Dudley Brown, President of the National Association for Gun Rights.
Constitutional Carry is the simple concept that law-abiding citizens who are legally allowed to possess a handgun, should also be allowed to carry that handgun openly, or concealed, without having to pay a tax or obtain a government permit.
“We also want to thank our members for the grassroots pressure they applied to the Governor and legislature through phone calls, emails, and letters. Their efforts are why Utahans are getting the Second Amendment rights the founders intended,” said Brown.
Utah’s new Constitutional Carry law goes into effect on May 5th, 2021.
The National Association for Gun Rights is the nation’s largest “no compromise” pro-gun organization,
with 4.5 million members nationwide.
