    Salt Lake Libraries(specifically the Sandy/Draper libraries)?

    I've looked, and the only thing I can find is an old news clip for the Deseret News about restricting OC in libraries; does anyone know if this is still in effect?

    I find myself in the rare position of having the day off, and was planning on stopping by the Sandy library. Just wondering if people have ever OCed there and if it's allowed or not?

    Thanks,

    S

    Steinmetzify:

    It is Legal to Carry a Firearm into a Public Building in Utah..., so as long as The Public Building does NOT Qualify as a 'Secure Facility'.

    Local Governments are Preempted from Regulating Firearms in Utah, so Salt Lake County or Salt Lake City CANNOT Regulate in This Subject-matter.

    However, in Order to either: 1. Load The Firearm, OR 2. Conceal The Firearm; You must have a Permit Issued by Utah or a State in which Utah Reconizes.

    Unless someone can point to a piece of STATE level legislation authorizing the prohibition on the possession and / or carry of a firearm in a PUBLIC Library in the State of Utah it would be a violation of STATE LAW to enforce such ban or policy!

    Please see: http://le.utah.gov/~code/TITLE53/htm/53_05a010200.htm

    53-5a-102. Uniform firearm laws.
    (1) The individual right to keep and bear arms being a constitutionally protected right under Article I, Section 6 of the Utah Constitution, the Legislature finds the need to provide uniform civil and criminal firearm laws throughout the state.
    (2) Except as specifically provided by state law, a local authority or state entity may not:
    (a) prohibit an individual from owning, possessing, purchasing, selling, transferring, transporting, or keeping a firearm at the individual's place of residence, property, business, or in any vehicle lawfully in the individual's possession or lawfully under the individual's control; or
    (b) require an individual to have a permit or license to purchase, own, possess, transport, or keep a firearm.
    (3) In conjunction with Title 76, Chapter 10, Part 5, Weapons, this section is uniformly applicable throughout this state and in all its political subdivisions and municipalities.
    (4) All authority to regulate firearms is reserved to the state except where the Legislature specifically delegates responsibility to local authorities or state entities.
    (5) Unless specifically authorized by the Legislature by statute, a local authority or state entity may not enact, establish, or enforce any ordinance, regulation, rule, or policy pertaining to firearms that in any way inhibits or restricts the possession or use of firearms on either public or private property.
    (6) As used in this section:
    (a) "firearm" has the same meaning as defined in Subsection 76-10-501(9); and
    (b) "local authority or state entity" includes public school districts, public schools, and state institutions of higher education.
    (7) Nothing in this section restricts or expands private property rights.

    any questions?
    RIGHTS don't exist without RESPONSIBILITY!
    If one is not willing to stand for his rights, he doesn't have any Rights.
    I will strive to stand for the rights of ANY person, even those folks with whom I disagree!
    As said by SVG--- "I am not anti-COP, I am PRO-Citizen" and I'll add, PRO-Constitution.
    If the above makes me a RADICAL or EXTREME--- So be it!

    2nd amendment says.... "...The right of the people to keep and bear arms SHALL NOT BE INFRINGED!"
