Out of state gun owners who seek a Utah concealed weapon permit -- which is popular because it is recognized by most states -- may soon first need to obtain a permit from their home state, if available. The Senate voted 28 0 on Friday to give preliminary approval to SB34, which would make the change. A final vote is expected next week.

This has been discussed before. The wording of the legislation has been modified to apply only to states that recognize Utah permits and have established reciprocity with Utah. This was done to help residents of non-shall issue states. As California does neither, we Californians are not affected by this legislation.

I just wanted to underscore this as being the case. The intent of the law is to force those who live in shall issue states with reciprocity with Utah to have their state of residence permit first, before they obtain a UT permit.

Texas and Pennsylvania were grumbling about people skipping their respective home state permits to get a UT permit and it might have cost UT reciprocity there. TX, PA, and UT have no problem with a CA resident getting a UT permit and carrying in all three.

I posted a thread about this. My understanding is they have not amended it yet so that may issue states could still get the permit. http://www.calguns.net/calgunforum/showthread.php?t=392227
