SALT LAKE CITY — A local lawmaker’s bill to limit the ability of local police to charge a person with disorderly conduct if they are openly carrying a weapon has passed the House.
The House voted 49-21 on Tuesday afternoon to move House Bill 49, sponsored by Rep. Paul Ray, R-Clinton, to the Senate. The vote came after almost an hour of debate about the right to carry guns and whether the new provision would take away a key law enforcement tool.
