SALT LAKE CITY - The Utah Department of Public Safety has changed the logo and design of concealed firearm permit cards.

The old card that had a red stripe along the top is set to be phased out over the next five years.  The new card does not have a red line but otherwise looks similar to the old one.  Both cards will be valid until the expiration date listed on the specific cards.

"The message is both of these cards, the old card with the red banner will be valid until its expiration date and the new card will be valid as soon as someone receives it," Lieutenant Ryan Vanfleet of the Utah Department of Public Safety said.

Nearly 70 percent of the 500,000 plus Utah concealed carry permit holders live outside the state.
