Common Sense Gun Bill.
HB0017 FIREARM VIOLENCE AND SUICIDE PREVENTION AMENDMENTS
Here is a model of good gun bills.
Essentially it does the following:
CCL Renewals require us to watch a video Creates a video on Suicide Prevention that is no more than 10 minutes long. Is available Online and provides proof of watching.
Requires a cable style gun lock to be provided to new purchasers of firearms if not provided by the manufacturer. To be paid for by the State.
Provides Gun Safety Education in schools to be provided by a non profit organization within the state that represents Firearm Owners.
Producing a redeemable coupon that offers between $10 and $200 off the purchase
price of a firearm safe from a participating firearms dealer or a person engaged in the business
of selling firearm safes in Utah, by a Utah resident who has filed an application for a concealed
firearm permit; and
(ii) collecting the receipts described in Section [76-10-526] from the participating
dealers and persons and reimbursing the dealers and persons. (Shows proof of purchase)
Provides a $2500 grant to retailers for employee education of Suicide Prevention and Safe Firearms education.
Funding provided by:
Dept of Mental Health and Substance Abuse General Fund of $10.000.
$510,000 from the Community Mental Health services.
$500,000 (One Time Funding) from BCI Concealed Weapons Account (Our background check agency) and those funds cannot be used for anything else.
So there is a modest increase to CCL fees.
And the libs in Mental Health will pay for their education; and that education will be overseen by a Pro Firearms organization.
Firearms Safety can be taught in the schools once again.
