Utah Gov. Spencer Cox signed a bill Friday that will allow Utah residents to carry concealed weapons without a permit.
The law, which will go into effect in May, allows anyone 21-and-older to carry a concealed weapon.
“With the passage of this bill, Utah joins 17 other states with some form of permitless concealed carry,” Cox said Friday. “This bill protects Second Amendment rights, reduces permitless open carry (which is already legal), and includes significant funding for suicide prevention.”
