Private firearms transfers (i.e., transfers by individuals not licensed as dealers) are not subject to a background check requirement in Utah.
See the Firearms Trafficking in Utah section for laws aimed at gun trafficking.
Utah prohibits the sale of any firearm to a person under age 18 unless he or she is accompanied by a parent or guardian.2
See our Private Sales policy summary for a comprehensive discussion of this issue.
