Ask legislators on the House Law Enforcement and Criminal Justice Committee to pass HB 109!
The Brady Handgun Violence Prevention Act of 1993 imposed a federal requirement on retail gun dealers that they must conduct a criminal background check before transferring a gun to a customer. However, the Brady Act’s background check requirement does not extend to private transactions. 20 states have background check laws that go beyond the federal minimum requirements to include background checks for private firearm sales. Utah is not currently among them.
88% of Utahns support background checks on all gun sales.
