It might seem inappropriate to carry a firearm into an auto body repair Salt Lake City shop. Not every state has the same license to carry firearms as does the state of Texas. As such, in Texas a man or woman who is properly licensed is free to carry a firearm into an auto body repair shop. Interestingly enough the state of Utah allows for the unlicensed open carry of a firearm under the following condition. That condition is that the firearm must be at least two actions from firing. For example, a semi-automatic firearm may have a full magazine but the chamber must be empty. A permit holder may openly carry a firearm as well, however, their firearms have the option to be fully loaded.
WHY MIGHT A PERSON WANT TO OPENLY CARRY A FIREARM INTO AN AUTO BODY REPAIR SALT LAKE CITY
The question that naturally arises from this sort of inquiry is why a person would want to carry a firearm loaded or otherwise into a public place. The first and most obvious answer to this question is that the firearm is carried for the purpose of self protection. While one might not expect to encounter a situation which would require the use of a firearm in an auto body repair shop one never knows when this type of situation might arise.
Therefore, if one wishes to carry a firearm in a public place he or she must be familiar with the laws of the jurisdiction in which he or she happens to be. Carrying a firearm when one is not properly licensed to do so can result in serious criminal penalties. One might debate whether a government should regulate this type of thing or not. That of course is beyond the scope of this particular blog post.
