A bill proposed for the 2012 Utah Legislature would prohibit a person who is lawfully carrying a firearm in public from being charged with non- firearm related crimes such as disorderly conduct or disturbing the operation of a school.

HB49, sponsored by Rep. Paul Ray, R-Clearfield, states that, “… in the absence of additional threatening behavior, the otherwise lawful possession of a firearm … whether visible or concealed” would not in itself constitute a violation of various criminal statutes.

The statutes specified by the bill also include failure to leave a higher education campus when ordered, failure to disperse, disrupting a meeting or procession, threatening with or using a dangerous weapon in a fight, and several others, according to the current version of the bill.
