We often hear from the gun grabbers how people with restraining orders against them should be disarmed, but we never talk about the other side of the person who sought the order. I just found out Utah passed a law that says getting a temporary restraining order provides a 120 day window for carrying a concealed firearm without fear of prosecution. This became law last month. The provisions of Subsections 76-10-504(1) and (2), and Section 76-10-505 do not apply to ... a person who is issued a protective order under Subsection 78B-7-106(1)(B) or 78B-7-404(1)(B), unless the person is a restricted person as described in Subsection 76-10-503(1), for a period of 120 days after the day on which the person is issued the protective order. https://le.utah.gov/...tic/HB0243.html Sent from my SM-N960U using Tapatalk

I'll be honest, if they handle TROs like most places (i.e. all too easy to get), then that could be abused.  I do like looking at it from that angle instead of as an excuse to remove guns from someone.

Makes perfect sense. A piece of paper isn't going to stop a determined attacker.

Hopefully trainers will step up with a reasonably priced TRO safety/marksmanship class as well. It's a great way to get new gun owners on board the right way once their 120 days are up.

Last I checked, in Salt Lake City the Utah CFP course is approximately $50. Then the application is about $50. You usually have to pay for fingerprinting and passport photos in addition to those fees. Personally, I thought the need to play for a passport photo and fingerprinting separately was ridiculous. In Philadelphia I was teaching the course for $100 and did passport photos and fingerprinting after the 4-hour lecture at no additional cost. I was the cheapest around, and lunch was included. Usually hoagies, chips, cookies, and water/Gatorade. My closest competitor was $125, and you still needed to get fingerprints and photos elsewhere. Sent from my SM-N960U using Tapatalk
