Gov. Gary Herbert urged both sides in Utah's gun debate to take a deep breath and approach the issue in a reasonable, rational way.
The governor said that, with emotions running high after the shooting in Newtown, Conn., both sides need to be methodical about the situation.
"I'm a little disappointed that we have a president who is proposing 35 or 37 executive orders to solve the problem and skirting Congress. I don't think that's the right way to solve the problem," Herbert said. "I have someone else out there who is worried about Congress sweeping in and taking away our guns. I think that's an exaggeration, too."
