Utah guns-in-cars bill passes Senate panel

From the Beehive State:
A bill that would allow gun owners to keep a firearm in their vehicles even while parked in a private lot passed a Senate committee Tuesday.

SB78, sponsored by Sen. Mark Madsen, R-Eagle Mountain, has cleared House and Senate panels in the past, but never has made it through the Legislature.

The measure would allow employees to keep a firearm in their vehicles, but a business could prevent that if it has a secured parking area, which needs a fence and a security guard. In that case, it must provide a locker to allow gun owners to stow their weapons before entering the secured lot.
