Utah DUI and Concealed Weapons Permit

Many people do not understand the hidden consequences of a DUI.  One such hidden consequence is the denial of obtaining a concealed weapons permit.  If a citizen already has a weapons permit, it will be revoked.  In fact, the code says you cannot have a permit or your permit can be revoked or suspended if you have had any crime involving drugs, alcohol, or a domestic violence charge.  Utah Code 53-3-704(2)(a) states:

(2) (a) The bureau may deny, suspend, or revoke a concealed firearm permit if the applicant or permit holder:
(i) has been or is convicted of a felony;
(ii) has been or is convicted of a crime of violence;
(iii) has been or is convicted of an offense involving the use of alcohol;
(iv) has been or is convicted of an offense involving the unlawful use of narcotics
or other controlled substances;
(v) has been or is convicted of an offense involving moral turpitude; (vi) has been or is convicted of an offense involving domestic violence; (vii) has been or is adjudicated by a state or federal court as mentally incompetent, unless the adjudication has been withdrawn or reversed; and
(viii) is not qualified to purchase and possess a firearm pursuant to Section
76-10-503 and federal law.
