Hey I am a Canuck presently living in Quebec but is interested in getting the Utah Non-Resident Permit and also visiting the LDS temple in Salt Lake City, I am also interested in learning more about living as an armed individual in Utah.

Hope to have some great conversations with you all. :)

Welcome to the forum. Uh, you aren't planning on visiting the temple with a gun, are you? I think they will frown on that. :wink:

Eh, he can't CC a gun into the temple, but the Visitor's Center is fine (with a CFP). Of course, a Canadian getting a Utah CFP is problematic at this point, since the BCI stopped that practice. The bill that would have fixed that problem died in the Senate. Check the 2008 Utah Legislative Wrap-up:
...
HB 195- "Concealed Firearm Permit Amendments" by Rep. Merlynn Newbold fixed the problem of non-U.S. citizen eligibility for and processing of Concealed Weapon Permits, primarily Canadian citizens. The House passed this 62-0, but the Senate refused to vote on it, so it died. We suspect the Senators were a bit peeved about their excellent gun bills getting stuck in the House and were sending a message to quit playing games.
Don't give up hope though. I'd bet that this will be back next year.

Nope because I have read the law and all LDS churches in Utah are gun-free zones so I would have to stow it away when I visit the church and temple.

Welcome to our forum, Sleepless from Quebec! :D
Thanks for introducing yourself. When do you plan to visit Utah?

Stick around and post often...
Well I am not sure yet at the moment but I have been told that I am too old to go on a mission and I have to finish my education here first but time will tell.

Well we have 1,000 NRA members up here and a lot of them are interested in getting a Utah Concealed Weapons Permit, I just spent the last 45 mins listening to audio from the meetings and the only thing I heard from the Senate Committee was that they were gonna recommend it get favorable treatment but I guess they are playing dodgeball with the House which is sad to see but unfortunately a reality.

I can tell you that there is a lot of eyes looking towards the Utah Legislature and keeping their fingers crossed.

Welcome to the forum!
Thanks Don, I am sorry I haven't been here lately but I am now a member of so many gun forums that I lost track of this one and I just found it again researching HB 195 but now I am back and I ain't going anywhere.

Might also be able to get some of the Canuck friends to join you guys here too. :D
