The Utah Shooting Sports Council is an all-volunteer grassroots organization dedicated to protecting Second Amendment civil rights in Utah. Our mission is to protect your right to own and use firearms for hunting, self-defense, collecting, recreational shooting and all other lawful purposes.
We are incorporated in the state of Utah and are served by a seven-person board of directors elected by the membership.
We operate as a kind of state-level NRA, lobbying the Utah Legislature on behalf of gun owners. We work closely with the NRA and other gun rights organizations on legislative issues at the state level.

Fortunately, there is an experience model. Utah has for many years allowed teachers to carry handguns: there has not been a single instance of such misuse. Texas also allows it, and South Dakota has recently passed a law allowing on-campus concealed carry. Other states are considering legislation."
