After receiving a Utah Concealed Firearm Permit (CFP), you are allowed to carry a concealed firearm in most places within the state of Utah and in other states that have reciprocity agreements with Utah. However, there are certain places where carrying a concealed firearm is not allowed, even with a CFP. These include:
- Federal buildings, such as post offices and courthouses
- K-12 schools, and school grounds
- Polling places on election day
- Nuclear power plants
- Game refuges, and wildlife management areas
- Indian reservations, unless you have written permission from the tribe
- Places where carrying firearms is prohibited by federal law
- Any place where the carrying of firearms is prohibited by state law or regulation
It’s important to note that private property owners have the right to prohibit firearms on their property, so it’s important to be aware of any posted signs or verbal notices indicating that firearms are not allowed.
It is also important to note that if you are a law enforcement officer or a retired law enforcement officer, you may have additional places where you can carry your firearm and you may have additional rights to carry your firearm.
Utah has Concealed Carry Reciprocity agreements with a number of other states, which means that if you have a Utah Concealed Firearm Permit (CFP), you may be able to legally carry your firearm in those states as well. However, it’s important to check the laws of the state you’re planning to visit or travel through to make sure you’re in compliance with their laws, as laws and regulations may vary from state to state.
Utah has reciprocity agreements with the following states: Alabama, Alaska, Arizona, Arkansas, Georgia, Idaho, Indiana, Iowa, Kansas, Kentucky, Louisiana, Mississippi, Missouri, Montana, Nebraska, North Carolina, North Dakota, Ohio, Oklahoma, South Dakota, Tennessee, Texas, Vermont and Wyoming.
It’s important to note that laws and regulations are subject to change, so it’s important to check for updates and for any new agreements or changes in laws that may have been made. It’s also important to check if the state you’re planning to visit has any restrictions or additional requirements for non-residents and out-of-state permit holders.
It is also important to note that even with reciprocity agreements, laws and regulations may vary from state to state, so it’s important to familiarize yourself with the laws of the state you’re in and to follow them at all times.
