ILA | Utah: Senate Passes Enhanced Firearm Preemption Legislation


Today the Utah Senate passed Senate Bill 115 1st Substitute by a 20 to 5 vote.  The measure now heads to the House for further consideration.

Introduced by Senator Chris Wilson and Representative Cory Maloy, SB 115 enhances Utah’s existing firearm preemption statute by providing a mechanism to ensure compliance. Firearm preemption occupies the field of firearm laws and regulations with the state, preventing localities from enacting their own gun control, which in turn could create a confusing patchwork of regulations and ordinances. This legislation will help ensure consistency in firearm laws throughout the state of Utah.
