A. UTAH STATE CONSTITUTION

Regarding the right to bear arms, the Utah Constitution states: “The individual right of the people to keep and bear arms for security and defense of self, family, others, property, or the state, as well as for other lawful purposes shall not be infringed; but nothing herein shall prevent the Legislature from defining the lawful use of arms.”

B. SCOPE OF PREEMPTION

The controlling language of Utah’s preemption statute is set forth as follows: “All authority to regulate firearms shall be reserved to the state except where the Legislature specifically delegates responsibility to local authorities or state entities. Unless specifically authorized by the Legislature by statute, a local authority or state entity may not enact or enforce any ordinance, regulation, or rule pertaining to firearms.”
