I have noticed lately a large number of new stories in Utah where Utah Concealed Carry Permit holders are “holding” bad guys until the cops arrive. Since news stories have a tendancy to leave out facts or paint the picture to their own liking I thought it was about time we confront the issue head on by exploring the law and spreading the news among the Utah CCW community.
In Midvale Utah this summer 2 men chased their home robbers down the street. After firing a warning shot the theives stopped and were held until police arrived. http://www.ksl.com/?nid=148&sid=6851011
In Salina Utah an employee of an auto shop was assaulted by a customer. He pulled his gun to stop the attacker and 14 minutes later when the police arrived they charged the employee with aggravated assault with a deadly weapon.
