UT:Bill introduced to Prevent Police form Using "Disorderly Conduct" charge to Chill Exercise of Second Amendment

Several courts have ruled that open carry of firearms is not disorderly conduct.  Some states, such as Wisconsin, have codified it into law.

Rep. Paul Ray, R-Clinton and Sen. Curt Bramble, R-Provo, are both running separate bills to define the ability of law enforcement to charge a person openly carrying a weapon in public places with disorderly conduct. Both were co-sponsors of legislation that cleared the House in 2013, but died when compromise language raised opposition to the measure.
