A bill clarifying that simply carrying a firearm in a holster or enclosed case does not constitute disorderly conduct is on its way to Gov. Gary Herbert for his signature.
The House voted 63-8 Thursday to approve Senate amendments to HB276 and provide final passage.
Rep. Curt Oda, R-Clearfield, the bill's sponsor, said in earlier debate that sometimes people preparing to go hunting or carrying a holstered gun but making no threatening gestures or comments have been arrested and charged with disorderly conduct because someone else felt uncomfortable. He said that infringes on Second Amendment rights.
