Law absolving a business of liability for cust. discharge?

Postby UtahJarhead » Thu 16 Feb 2017 9:21 am

I'm positive there's a law that says businesses will not be held liable if a person on their property commits an illegal act with a firearm (discharge, etc). However, I can't find it in Snurd's pamphlet or the laws links that Jeff Johnson posted YEARS ago.

You guys remember what statute it is?

Edit: I know that 53-5a-103 protects that, but I thought there was another one. Maybe I'm just misremembering.

The thread about the pamphlet

Direct link to Google Doc pamphlet

The one you referenced is most likely it. I don't remember another one, though that doesn't mean there isn't.

Utah Law wrote:53-5a-103. Discharge of firearm on private property -- Liability.
(1) Except as provided under Subsection (2), a private property owner, who knowingly allows a person who has a permit to carry a concealed firearm under Section 53-5-704 to bring the firearm onto the owner's property, is not civilly or criminally liable for any damage or harm resulting from the discharge of the firearm by the permit holder while on the owner's property.
(2) Subsection (1) does not apply if the property owner solicits, requests, commands, encourages, or intentionally aids the concealed firearm permit holder in discharging the firearm while on the owner's property.

If you search for pamphlet in the search bar, that thread is on the first page of the search.

You guys crack me up! I've missed your gentle bantering. Good to see that the Jarhead is still breathing (and not incarcerated) ;-)
