Nevada verses Utah CCW
We believe the Nevada CCW surpasses the Utah CCW for a variety of reasons. There are two major differences between the two states:
Utah BCI Section 53-5-2 (a) has a “moral” character clause. If you have been convicted of a minor misdemeanor, you cannot
receive a Utah CCW due to moral turpitude. Apparently, Utah does not believe once you've paid your fines, penalties, and served
your time, you have paid your debt to society. Utah will ‘remember’ your minor infraction forever. A classic example is a DUI-if
you received a DUI anytime, anywhere, no matter how long it’s been, how minor the infraction, you can forget about Utah in
terms of a CCW.
Nevada does not have a moral turpitude clause-once you’ve paid your debt to society, you are forgiven. The Nevada CCW
license is not honored in states which choose to hold your past mistakes against you. Unlike Utah, a minor DUI arrest in
Nevada is forgiven once you have finished with your court imposed sentence.
Utah does not have a “live-fire” provision.
Nevada does have a “live fire” provision for the Nevada Carry and Concealed Weapons License which is why the Nevada CCW is
accepted in states where a Utah CCW is not.
Both Utah and Nevada allow state recognized firearm instructors to discuss major firearm laws and to distribute copies of firearm
laws as they pertain to their state.
