New Utah Concealed Weapon Administrative Rules

New administrative rules were released in 2010 that clarified existing Utah statutes regarding concealed weapon laws.

One such rule is that if ex-offender does not meet the qualifications to apply for a concealed handgun license because they were convicted of a crime, they may still be eligible if the crime they were convicted of was not a registerable sex offense, and the specified time period below has elapsed since they were released from incarceration.

  • Class A Misdemeanor – Five years
  • Class B Misdemeanor – Four Years
  • Any Other Misdemeanor – Three years

Additionally, offenses involving moral turpitude that prevent an ex-offender from being permitted to carry a concealed weapon include offenses done:

  • Knowingly contrary to justice, honesty or good morals;
  • With an element of falsification or fraud; or
  • With an element of harm or injury directed to another person.
